GitHub Pages


Usage

Workflow

Below is a simple snippet to deploy to GitHub Pages with a dummy HTML page.

A workflow is also available for this repository and deploys everyday to GitHub pages.

name: website

on: push

jobs:
  publish:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      -
        name: Checkout
        uses: actions/checkout@v3
      -
        name: Gen dummy page
        run: |
          mkdir public
          cat > public/index.html <<EOL
          <!doctype html>
          <html>
            <head>
              <title>GitHub Pages deployed!</title>
            </head>
            <body>
              <p>GitHub Pages with <strong>${{ github.sha }}</strong> commit ID has been deployed through <a href="https://github.com/marketplace/actions/github-pages">GitHub Pages action</a> successfully.</p>
            </body>
          </html>
          EOL
      -
        name: Deploy to GitHub Pages
        if: success()
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-github-pages@v3
        with:
          target_branch: gh-pages
          build_dir: public
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

Sign commits

You can use the Import GPG GitHub Action along with this one to sign commits:

      -
        name: Import GPG key
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-import-gpg@v5
        with:
          gpg_private_key: ${{ secrets.GPG_PRIVATE_KEY }}
          passphrase: ${{ secrets.PASSPHRASE }}
          git_user_signingkey: true
          git_commit_gpgsign: true
      -
        name: Deploy to GitHub Pages
        if: success()
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-github-pages@v3
        with:
          target_branch: gh-pages
          build_dir: public
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

Check availability of GitHub Pages

You can use the GitHub Status Action along with this one to check availability of GitHub Pages before deploying:

      -
        name: Check GitHub Pages status
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-github-status@v3
        with:
          pages_threshold: major_outage
      -
        name: Deploy to GitHub Pages
        if: success()
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-github-pages@v3
        with:
          target_branch: gh-pages
          build_dir: public
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
