Jekyll vs Wix: What are the differences?
Developers describe Jekyll as "Blog-aware, static site generator in Ruby". Think of Jekyll as a file-based CMS, without all the complexity. Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server. Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host sites right from your GitHub repositories. On the other hand, Wix is detailed as "Wix.com is a web development platform enabling anyone to build a stunning online presence using simple cloud-based creation and management tools". Creating your stunning website for free is easier than ever. No tech skills needed. Just pick a template, change anything you want, add your images, videos, text and more to get online instantly.
Jekyll and Wix are primarily classified as "Static Site Generators" and "Website Builder" tools respectively.
"Github pages integration" is the top reason why over 65 developers like Jekyll, while over 2 developers mention "WYSIWYG" as the leading cause for choosing Wix.
Jekyll is an open source tool with 38.1K GitHub stars and 8.31K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Jekyll's open source repository on GitHub.
