Generating a Jekyll post with Yeoman

javascript automation cli

It is really easy to create a new Jekyll blog post - create a new markdown file with a kebab file name consisting of the date and post title plus the metadata at the top e.g.

layout: post
title: Generating a Jekyll post with Yeoman
comments: false
tags: jekyll

The other way is to use my new blog post generator that makes use of Yeoman.

The repo contains the yeoman project with instructions but basically yeoman prompts with a series of questions and then creates a new blog post markdown file from a template.
