Step 1: Enable GitHub Pages

Welcome to GitHub Pages and Jekyll 馃帀!

If you're new to GitHub Pages, or you want to learn how to build and host a GitHub Pages site, you're in the right place. With GitHub Pages, you can host content like documentation, resumes, or any other static content that you鈥檇 like.

In this course, you'll create a blog hosted on GitHub Pages and learn how to:

  • Enable GitHub Pages
  • Use Jekyll, a static site generator
  • Customize Jekyll sites with a theme and content

New to GitHub?

For this course, you'll need to know how to create a branch on GitHub, commit changes using Git, and open a pull request on GitHub. If you need a refresher on the GitHub flow, check out the the Introduction to GitHub course.

鈱笍 Activity: Generate a GitHub Pages site

The first step to publishing your blog to the web is to enable GitHub Pages on this repository 馃摉. When you enable GitHub Pages on a repository, GitHub takes the content that's on the master branch and publishes a website based on its contents.

  1. Under your repository name, click Settings.
  2. In the "GitHub Pages" section, in the Source drop-down, select master branch.

After GitHub Pages is enabled and the site is started, we'll be ready to create some more content.

Turning on GitHub Pages creates a deployment of your repository. I may take up to a minute to respond as I await the deployment.

Sometimes I respond too fast for the page to update! If you perform an expected action and don't see a response from me, wait a few seconds and refresh the page for your next steps.

Great job! Now that GitHub Pages is enabled, you can view your website here:

You can customize your homepage by adding content to either an index file or the file. GitHub Pages first looks for an index file. If an index file is found, GitHub Pages uses the content in the file to create the homepage. If an index file isn鈥檛 found, it uses the to create the homepage.

Your repository has an file so we can update it to include your personalized content.

  2. In the upper right corner, click the the icon to the right of the file to edit the file
  3. Type the content you want on your homepage
  4. Scroll to the bottom, type a commit message, and click Create a new branch for this commit and start a pull request
  5. Open a pull request

Once you have created your pull request, I will move over there to discuss next steps.

Look for my next response in your pull request.
