A include-able fragment to build a simple tab control in a Jekyll page. Simple and flexible, can be adopted easily to other static page generators.

This is a list of questions (and answers) I stumbled over while designing this site. It is by no means a complete list and will most likely cover topics that are already documented elsewhere. I found many answers on stackoverflow questions tagged with Jekyll and links are given when still available. As almost always with such matter, stackoverflow is the #1 resource for such questions.
Building simple galleries using includes and Jekyll YAML data files.
GitHub is not only the largest developer community on the net, they also offer lots of free services. Code repositories for free Open Source project are one thing, web hosting for simple static web sites another one.
