Static sites on github must be deployed to the
gh-pages branch. Sometimes you may want to deploy a sub folder within your repository to be at the root of your site. For example:
-- / ---- build/ << contains built site ---- source/ ---- README.md ---- etc..
You can deploy the
/build/ folder from the master branch to the root of
gh-pages using the
git subtree push --prefix build origin gh-pages
As a bonus, if you're using a custom domain you need to ensure there's a CNAME file in the root of the
/build/ folder with the domain name in it. You can wrap this up in a shell command like so:
touch build/CNAME echo \"domainname.co\" >> build/CNAME
Neither do I. You're busy, and so is your inbox. I'll only be in touch when I publish something new. And of course it goes without saying your email will be kept completely private.
