In this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots teaches us how to use a free service of GitHub called GitHub Pages. This service literally gives you free web hosting for the web apps we’ve learned to make in Programming By Stealth. Bart starts by explaining to us the difference between static and dynamic webpages, and web pages created by static site generators like Jekyll which generates GitHub Pages.
It’s trivially easy to create a GitHub Page from an open GitHub repo (literally three clicks in the interface) but it’s really important to understand what you’re doing when you take advantage of this service. We’ll learn what you can do and what you can’t do and what you could do if you choose to dig deeper into the woods on how to use Jekyll to generate GitHub Pages.
I’m really excited to learn about GitHub Pages and how easy it is to host all of the web apps we’ve created in this series.
