GitHub Pages: Powerful and Easy

“It is amazing! I use it for my personal website… Seriously it is like magic” — Brian Zindler

“Oh yeah, that thing’s amazing…. For any project, there’s no reason not to have it. Yeah, I love GitHub pages” — Camille Roussel

“It’s the best fucking thing” — Andy Coenen

What is it?

A static content host.

Why does it rock?

  • it’s super easy
  • it has unlimited bandwidth
  • it’s free

How do you use it?

Make a branch gh-pages on GitHub. That’s it. You’re done.

You can use it to publish projects or host static like docs, super easy. Here are some examples:

  • Time Complexity Viewer
  • watchout Butters game
  • twittler
  • David’s Jekyll blog. Or Andy Coenen’s, Brian Zindler’s, or Alan Sun’s
  • Bloom Filter false positives
  • React docs

The above are my notes from a quick presentation I gave on this subject. And here were the pages that accompanied the presentation:
