3.1. Fork the Repository

Click the Fork icon Fork to create a copy of this repository within your GitHub account.

3.2. Use the github.io Domain

If you have never used your GitHub Pages domain before, you can use this procedure to quickly set up HubPress. With this method, only a few steps are required to get HubPress deployed and ready for use.

Important
If you are currently using your username.github.io GitHub Pages domain for another project, or if you want to use a custom domain name, skip to the next procedure for instructions.
  1. Rename your repository to <username>.github.io

  2. Set values in hubpress/config.json

    Edit config

    The following parameters are mandatory:

    • username, which is your GitHub user name,

    • repositoryName, which is the new name of the repository fork, <username>.github.io.

  3. Commit the changes, and open the GitHub Pages domain: https://<username>.github.io/.

3.3. Use a Custom Domain or GitHub Page Domain Already In Use

If you want your blog to be available on a custom domain, or you are already using your GitHub Pages domain to host another project, some extra configuration is required.

  1. In the repository settings, set the default branch to gh-pages:

    Settings gh-pages

  2. Switch your repository to the gh-pages branch.

    Install complete

  3. Set the required values in hubpress/config.json

    Edit config

    The following parameters are mandatory:

    • username, which is your GitHub user name,

    • repositoryName, which is the repository fork. For example, hubpress.io if you did not rename it.

    Install complete

Now you have successfully configured HubPress, you can customise it by adding social network information, experiment with different themes, and make your HubPress blog your own.
