Jekyll generates HTML that can be put on any server that serves static

The advantage of Jekyll is that you can define templates and includes
that simplify your development work and reduce repetition in your code.

Using markdown, textile or another text to html generators, helps
content creators to write their texts without having to worry about html.
It's rendered into your jekyll template and stored as a simple html file.

In the end you have to distribute the generated html, images and css
files and nothing more.
