"History: Jekyll was first released by Tom Preston-Werner in 2008. With Preston-Werner's departure from GitHub in April 2014, the project lost its lead developer. Jekyll started a web development trend towards static websites."
"Features: Instead of using databases, Jekyll takes the content, renders Markdown or Textile and Liquid templates, and produces a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache HTTP Server, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, a GitHub feature that allows users to host websites based on their GitHub repositories. Jekyll is flexible and supports front-end frameworks such as Bootstrap, Semantic UI and many others. Jekyll sites can be published using cloud-based CMS software such as CloudCannon, enabling content editors the ability to modify site content without having to know how to code.Jekyll (software).
