simple site Easy websites with GitHub Pages
For me, the painful aspects of making a website are
- Working with html and css
- Finding a hosting site
- Transferring stuff to the hosting site
The GitHub and Jekyll documentation is great, but I thought it would be useful to have a minimal tutorial, for those who just want to get going immediately with a simple site. To some readers, what GitHub has might be simpler and more direct. But if you just want to create a site like the one you’re looking at now, read on.
Start by reading the Overview page, which explains the basic structure of these sites. Then read how to make an independent website. Then read any of the other things, such as how to test your site locally.
- Making an independent website
- Making a personal site
- Making a site for a project
- Making a jekyll-free site
- Testing your site locally
If anything here is confusing (or wrong!), or if I’ve missed important details, please submit an issue, or (even better) fork the GitHub repository for this website, make modifications, and submit a pull request.
The source for this minimal tutorial is on github.
