Cygwin and Jekyll

Installing Cygwin + Jekyll in Windows 8.1

Just a quick one from me today, I recently got an excellent new laptop, that sadly does not seem to want to dual boot with Fedora, so I have been forced to fall back to just a Windows 8 Machine. A work colleague suggested I give Cygwin a whirl to continue to use all the amazing things Windows just can't do. During the set-up, I got extremely annoyed with the GUI based normal way of installing the environment due to me managing to break Ruby + gems and it taking longer than necessary clicking all the boxes to select the wanted applications, so I made a snippet to make the reinitialization of Cygwin in future much easier. I have moved on since this post to using Hugo instead, as ejekyll no longer works, and Hugo does!
