Malt was built with Jekyll version 3.3.1, but should support newer versions as well.

Install the dependencies with Bundler:

$ bundle install

Run jekyll commands through Bundler to ensure you’re using the right versions:

$ bundle exec jekyll serve


Malt is already optimised for updating pages, company details and footer elements in CloudCannon.


This site uses the jekyll-seo-tag plugin. You should at least set a title in front matter on each page. Have a look at the project page for more options.
