About Páginas de GitHub

Páginas de GitHub is a static site hosting service that takes HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files straight from a repository on GitHub AE, optionally runs the files through a build process, and publishes a website. You can see examples of Páginas de GitHub sites in the Páginas de GitHub examples collection.

To get started, see "Creating a Páginas de GitHub site."

Types of Páginas de GitHub sites

There are three types of Páginas de GitHub sites: project, user, and organization. Project sites are connected to a specific project hosted on GitHub AE, such as a JavaScript library or a recipe collection. User and organization sites are connected to a specific account on GitHub AE.

To publish a user site, you must create a repository owned by your user account that's named <username>.<hostname>. To publish an organization site, you must create a repository owned by an organization that's named <organization>.<hostname>. User and organization sites are available at http(s)://pages.<hostname>/<username> or http(s)://pages.<hostname>/<organization>.

The source files for a project site are stored in the same repository as their project. Project sites are available at http(s)://pages.<hostname>/<username>/<repository>/ or http(s)://pages.<hostname>/<organization>/<repository>/.

You can only create one user or organization site for each account on GitHub AE. Project sites, whether owned by an organization or a user account, are unlimited.

Publishing sources for Páginas de GitHub sites

The publishing source for your Páginas de GitHub site is the branch and folder where the source files for your site are stored.

Advertencia: Si tu administrador de sitio habilitó las páginas públicas, los sitios de Páginas de GitHub estarán disponibles al público en general por internet, incluso si el repositorio del sitio es privado o internol. Si tienes datos sensibles en el repositorio de tu sitio, podrías querer eliminar los datos antes de publicar. Para obtener más información, consulta las secciones "Configurar Páginas de GitHub para tu empresa" y "Acerca de los repositorios."

If the default publishing source exists in your repository, Páginas de GitHub will automatically publish a site from that source. The default publishing source for user and organization sites is the root of the default branch for the repository. The default publishing source for project sites is the root of the gh-pages branch.

If you want to keep the source files for your site in a different location, you can change the publishing source for your site. You can publish your site from any branch in the repository, either from the root of the repository on that branch, /, or from the /docs folder on that branch. For more information, see "Configuring a publishing source for your Páginas de GitHub site."

If you choose the /docs folder of any branch as your publishing source, Páginas de GitHub will read everything to publish your site from the /docs folder.

Static site generators

Páginas de GitHub publishes any static files that you push to your repository. You can create your own static files or use a static site generator to build your site for you. You can also customize your own build process locally or on another server. We recommend Jekyll, a static site generator with built-in support for Páginas de GitHub and a simplified build process. For more information, see "About Páginas de GitHub and Jekyll."

Páginas de GitHub will use Jekyll to build your site by default. If you want to use a static site generator other than Jekyll, disable the Jekyll build process by creating an empty file called .nojekyll in the root of your publishing source, then follow your static site generator's instructions to build your site locally.

Páginas de GitHub does not support server-side languages such as PHP, Ruby, or Python.
