Because the importers have many of their own dependencies, they are made available via a separate gem called jekyll-import. To use them, all you need to do is install the gem, and they will become available as part of Jekyll’s standard command line interface.

$ gem install jekyll-import
Jekyll-import requires you to manually install some dependencies.

Most importers require one or more dependencies. In order to keep jekyll-import's footprint small, we don't bundle the gem with every plausible dependency. Instead, you will see a nice error message describing any missing dependency and how to install it. If you're especially savvy, take a look at the require_deps method in your chosen importer to install all of the deps in one go.
