## Getting Started
You can get started with GitLab Pages using Jekyll easily by either forking this repository or by uploading a new/existing Jekyll project.
Remember you need to wait for your site to build before you will be able to see your changes. You can track the build on the **Pipelines** tab.
### Start by forking this repository
1. Fork this repository.
1. **IMPORTANT:** Remove the fork relationship.
Go to **Settings (⚙)** > **Edit Project** and click the **"Remove fork relationship"** button.
1. Enable Shared Runners.
Go to **Settings (⚙)** > **Pipelines** and click the **"Enable shared Runners"** button.
1. Rename the repository to match the name you want for your site.
1. Edit your website through GitLab or clone the repository and push your changes.
### Start from a local Jekyll project
1. [Install][] Jekyll.
1. Use `jekyll new` to create a new Jekyll Project.
1. Add [this `.gitlab-ci.yml`](.gitlab-ci.yml) to the root of your project.
1. Push your repository and changes to GitLab.
## GitLab CI
This project's static Pages are built by [GitLab CI][ci], following the steps
defined in [`.gitlab-ci.yml`](.gitlab-ci.yml):
image: ruby:2.3
JEKYLL_ENV: production
- bundle install
- bundle exec jekyll build -d public
- public
- master
## Using Jekyll locally
To work locally with this project, you'll have to follow the steps below:
1. Fork, clone or download this project
1. [Install][] Jekyll
1. Download dependencies: `bundle`
1. Build and preview: `bundle exec jekyll serve`
1. Add content
The above commands should be executed from the root directory of this project.
Read more at Jekyll's [documentation][].
## GitLab User or Group Pages
To use this project as your user/group website, you will need one additional
step: just rename your project to ``, where `namespace` is
your `username` or `groupname`. This can be done by navigating to your
project's **Settings**.
Read more about [user/group Pages][userpages] and [project Pages][projpages].
## Did you fork this project?
If you forked this project for your own use, please go to your project's
**Settings** and remove the forking relationship, which won't be necessary
unless you want to contribute back to the upstream project.
## Other examples
* [jekyll-branched]( demonstrates how you can keep your GitLab Pages site in one branch and your project's source code in another.
* The [jekyll-themes]( group contains a collection of example projects you can fork (like this one) having different visual styles.
## Troubleshooting
1. CSS is missing! That means two things:
* Either that you have wrongly set up the CSS URL in your templates, or
* your static generator has a configuration option that needs to be explicitly
set in order to serve static assets under a relative URL.
