FILES

_config.yml

The main configuration is done by default in the file _config.yml. This file can control both Jekyll's behavior (see OPTIONS) and site/theme configuration variables. If the configuration shall be split or a non-default file shall be used one can use the --config switch to define all configuration files.

See <https://jekyllrb.com/docs/configuration/options/> and <https://jekyllrb.com/docs/configuration/default/>.

ENVIRONMENT

JEKYLL_ENV

This environment variable defaults to development and can be checked during build via conditional statements to influence the output for example. It usually only affects the build and serve commands. The other well known value is production, but really any value can be assigned.

See <https://jekyllrb.com/docs/configuration/environments/>.
