Email form with

Doing more with static sites

I am a big fan of Jekyll. Generated static site hosted on gh-pages and now the ability to send email previously reserved for the back end, what's not to love?


Working on gh-pages (note: emails will go to me):

Step 1:

  • Update form to use form
<form action=""
    <input type="text" name="name">
    <input type="email" name="_replyto">
    <input type="submit" value="Send">

Step 2 :

  • Run and test locally
gem install jekyll bundler
bundle install
jekyll serve 
# Server address:

Step 3 :

  • Confirm email (only first email)

  • Submit test email

Step 4 :

  • Deploy
git commit -am "adding emailing"
checkout -b gh-pages
git push

  • Test live form

  • Read emails! :)
