Jekyll on Windows

Jekyll used to simply not work on Windows. Now it does.

I'm using ruby 2.0.0p195 and jekyll 1.2.1 in case it might help anyone. On Windows 8.

But when trying to serve a website (jekyll serve), you will probably get

Conversion error: There was an error converting '_posts/

error: incompatible character encodings: CP850 and UTF-8. Use --trace to view backtrace

The solution is to do a chcp 65001 (information I miraculously found here).

Like magic, it will start to work.
