GitHub Pages Jekyll Installation How-To

in order attempted

Windows 10 with GitHub Desktop
macOS High Sierra with MacPorts and SmartGit
Ubuntu on Windows (WSL) (or NOT) with SmartGit and its git-bash.exe


  1. Far easier to instead install Chrome extension Markdown Viewer
  2. Unlike html pages, markdown pages (files ending with .md) get URLs without .md

  4. Jekyll expects UTF-8 character encoding and fails badly if/when a BOM (Byte Order Mark) is encountered

    Workaround (using vim):
   :set nobomb
  1. IPv6 tends to be problematic, requiring Windows reboots
    Suggested procedures for disabling IPv6
