A Jekyll plugin that provides users with a traditional CMS-style graphical interface to author content and administer Jekyll sites. The project is divided into two parts. A Ruby-based HTTP API that handles Jekyll and filesystem operations, and a JavaScript-based front end, built on that API.

Refer to the installing plugins section of Jekyll's documentation and install the jekyll-admin plugin as you would any other plugin. Here's the short version:

  1. Add the following to your site's Gemfile:

    gem 'jekyll-admin', group: :jekyll_plugins
  2. Run bundle install


  1. Start Jekyll as you would normally (bundle exec jekyll serve)
  2. Navigate to http://localhost:4000/admin to access the administrative interface


Jekyll Admin related options can be specified in _config.yml under a key called jekyll_admin. Currently it has only one option hidden_links which is for hiding unwanted links on the sidebar. The following keys under hidden_links can be used in order to hide default links;

    - posts
    - pages
    - staticfiles
    - datafiles
    - configuration
