Building locally

When building Hydejack it is important to set the environment variable JEKYLL_ENV to production. Otherwise the output will not be minified. Building itself happens via Jekyll’s build command.

$ JEKYLL_ENV=production bundle exec jekyll build

This will generate the finished static files in _site, which can be deployed using the methods outlined in the Jekyll Documentation.

GitHub Pages

To deploy to GitHub Pages, the steps are:

$ JEKYLL_ENV=production bundle exec jekyll build
$ cd _site
$ git init # you only need to do this once
$ git remote add origin <github_remote_url> # you only need to do this once
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "Build"
$ git push origin master:<remote_branch>
$ cd ..
github_remote_url
Find this on your repository’s GitHub page.
remote_branch
Either master for “user or organization pages”, or gh-pages for “project pages”

Building locally with latent semantic analysis

By default, related posts are simply the most recent posts. Hydejack modifies this a bit, by showing the most recent posts of the same category or tag. However, the results are still pretty “unrelated”. To provide better results, Jekyll supports latent semantic analysis via classifier-reborn’s Latent Semantic Indexer

To use the LSI, you first have to disable Hydejack’s default behaviour, by setting use_lsi: true in _config.yml

use_lsi: true

Then, you have to run jekyll build with the --lsi flag:

$ JEKYLL_ENV=production bundle exec jekyll build --lsi

This will generate the finished static files in _site, which can be deployed using the methods outlined in the Jekyll Documentation.

GitHub Pages

To deploy to GitHub Pages, the steps are:

$ JEKYLL_ENV=production bundle exec jekyll build --lsi
$ cd _site
$ git init # you only need to do this once
$ git remote add origin <github_remote_url> # you only need to do this once
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "Build"
$ git push origin master:<remote_branch>
$ cd ..
github_remote_url
Find this on your repository’s GitHub page.
