GitHub Pages currently supports several Jekyll plugins:
- Jemoji - provides support for emoji within Jekyll posts and pages
- Jekyll-mentions - provides support for @mentions within Jekyll posts and pages
- Jekyll-redirect-from - redirects visitors to an updated URL when Jekyll post or page filenames change.
In addition, GitHub Pages supports all other functionality of Jekyll, such as native Sass and CoffeeScript support.
- Make sure you're using the latest version of the GitHub Pages Gem
Add a list of enabled gems (plugins) to your site's
_config.ymlfile, such as:
gems: - jekyll-mentions - jemoji - jekyll-redirect-from - jekyll-sitemap - jekyll-feed
If you don't have a
_config.yml file, you will need to create one in the root of your GitHub Pages repository.
For more information, see the Jekyll documentation.
