Tagging blog posts in jekyll is straightforward if you can use plugins like this one. However, GitHub Pages only supports a set of whitelisted plugins and I don’t see any blog-post-tagging related helpers in that list. To make Jekyll tags work on GitHub Pages, you need to create an index page for each of your tags, which is painful.

Installing or trying to use a couple of them resulted in pretty startling errors, like missing C header files. I tried resolving those issues to no avail before ultimately resorting to scripting the shell.
