Redirect to your websites using git.io

Why?

Git.io is a URL shortening service that will redirect to your Github projects. If you try to redirect to other domain out of Github.com (like your website) you won't be able to do it.

So this project will help you redirect to any website using git.io super easy!

How to do it?

not-found

  • Go to _redirects.

  • Create an .html file with the name of the link you want to make.

  • Inside the file you need to copy the code below and paste it on you file, change it with you content.

---
permalink: /your-beautiful-link   <!-- The link where you want to redirect -->
destination: http://your-beautiful-site.com
---

So is that all?

No!

Now you can go to Git.io and copy gitdotio.github.io/your-beautiful-link and paste your link there and when you are done, you will have a git.io/random-name that will be redirected to your-beautiful-site.com.

Cons:

The Git.io website will only offer random short URLs.

So what if I want a mycool-name?

Well to have your custom vanity URL with git.io you will need to use your command line.

$ curl -i https://git.io -F "url=https://gitdotio.github.io/your-beautiful-link" -F "code=mycool-name"

where you will need to set the url= parameter with the link created by gitdotio.github.io and code= with the value you'd like to set.

At this point when you type git.io/mycool-name that will be redirected to your-beautiful-site.com

Note ⚠️

Websites won't be checked, but keep in mind to don't redirect to any abusive, racist or sexist website.

To use this service since it's owned by Github, Inc you will need to agree with the following:
