Jekyll - How To Limit Posts During The Build Process

April 07, 2021

As your Jekyll blog grows in size over time, you might find that the build process takes longer to run.

This can be frustrating if you just want to test out a small UI change.

Luckily, the workaround for this is to limit the number of posts during the build process.

Here’s the command:

bundle exec jekyll serve --limit_posts 10

This will limit the build to 10 posts but you can change the number to be whatever you need.

Try this out the next time you’re looking to test out a small change on your website locally and you’ll find this has a big impact on your build times.
