Good article, thanks.

It is always good to understand the basics before using framework tools but once you are up and running, it may be worth looking into Yeoman.io and the Jekyll generator

It will scaffold out your Jekyll site and also livereload your page when you save files (saving that trip to F5) and optimise your build when you are ready to push to github. It has improved my workflow greatly. It can take some effort to set up but even I got it running on Windows, and I’m an idiot! :-)
