    I was curious about this as well so I did some digging and I found this on the Github repo of the site:

    Why aren’t you hosting this on GitHub? While GitHub lets you host Jekyll-powered sites directly on GitHub itself, they don’t allow many custom Jekyll plugins. They also don’t allow executable code such as PHP, which is pretty vital to many parts of the site.

      The idea behind Jekyll & GitHub Pages is that there's nothing dynamic – no PHP or database. Your files are used by Jekyll to create pure HTML/CSS/JS – nothing dynamic on the server side. You gain so much, including incredible speed. I would highly, highly recommend GHP. Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions -- just mention me on GitHub: @parkr.
