Use Cases



Jekyll Static Site

This example builds a version of the ZestyBurger Site by feeding Zesty.io content into a statically-generated Jekyll Site.Github: https://github.com/zesty-io/zesty-jekyll/​

Getting Started


First, we'll need to install Jekyll.

Installing Jekyll

See the Jekyll Website For More Help

Next, let's clone the example project

Now, we simply need to install and run the project!

Note how npm install runs pullzesty

The example project's package.json also comes pre-equipped with some handy utility commands.

  • npm start # rebuilds data from zesty.io and runs a jekyll server
  • npm run-script build-jekyll # rebuilds data from zesty.io and runs jekyll to build a folder in docs/
  • npm run-script all # rebuilds data from zesty.io, runs jekyll to build a folder in docs/, and runs a jekyll server

Understanding the Example Project


Jekyll provides support for front-matter, which PullZesty takes advantage of to create the files. The real magic in this project lies in the zesty.yaml file, which specifies the proper paths for all of our content. This content is merely consumed by some layouts. When creating your own Jekyll project, feel free to look at our zesty.yaml file and our layout files.

As you can see in our home.html file, we simply load in the front-matter from the index.md file.
