Extending Vanilla Jekyll

Jekyll is a great platform for building a static blog site, but to really make it shine, you need to add some extra bells and whistles. This can be done using one of the many Jekyll plugins that are available online. The only caveat is that most plugins are disabled when you deploy to GitHub Pages.

This project (JekyllFaces) adds a ton of functionality without using any blocked plugins. All the code that extends the base Jekyll install is written in Liquid script, and JavaScript, which are both allowed in GitHub Pages websites.
