How do you use this?

@kenhkelly

Add it to the _plugins directory of your Jekyll project. Should run automatically on build.

@xylo

At the moment I'm trying to get your script work with Jekyll 3.0.1. But when I build the page using "jekyll build" the pages are only temporarly created and get removed after around 2 seconds. Does this script only work with older jekyll versions?

@xylo See the CategoryPageGenerator example on the Jekyll site: http://jekyllrb.com/docs/plugins/#generators
