GitHub Pages Action

GitHub Actions for deploying to GitHub Pages with Static Site Generators

license release GitHub release date Test Code Scanning CodeFactor

Note

See also the GitHub official GitHub Pages Action first.

This is a GitHub Action to deploy your static files to GitHub Pages. This deploy action can be combined simply and freely with Static Site Generators. (Hugo, MkDocs, Gatsby, mdBook, Next, Nuxt, and so on.)

The next example step will deploy ./public directory to the remote gh-pages branch.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public

For newbies of GitHub Actions: Note that the GITHUB_TOKEN is NOT a personal access token. A GitHub Actions runner automatically creates a GITHUB_TOKEN secret to authenticate in your workflow. So, you can start to deploy immediately without any configuration.

Supported Tokens

Three tokens are supported.

Token Private repo Public repo Protocol Setup
github_token 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍 HTTPS Unnecessary
deploy_key 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍 SSH Necessary
personal_token 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍 HTTPS Necessary

Notes: Actually, the GITHUB_TOKEN works for deploying to GitHub Pages but it has still some limitations. For the first deployment, we need to select the gh-pages branch or another branch on the repository settings tab. See First Deployment with GITHUB_TOKEN

Supported Platforms

All Actions runners: Linux (Ubuntu), macOS, and Windows are supported.

runs-on github_token deploy_key personal_token
ubuntu-22.04 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍
ubuntu-20.04 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍 鉁咃笍

windows-latest 鉁咃笍 (2) 鉁咃笍
  1. WIP, See Issue #87

GitHub Enterprise Server Support

鉁咃笍 GitHub Enterprise Server is supported above 2.22.6.

Note that the GITHUB_TOKEN that is created by the runner might not inherently have push/publish privileges on GHES. You might need to create/request a technical user with write permissions to your target repository.

Options

猸愶笍 Set Runner's Access Token github_token

This option is for GITHUB_TOKEN, not a personal access token.

A GitHub Actions runner automatically creates a GITHUB_TOKEN secret to use in your workflow. You can use the GITHUB_TOKEN to authenticate in a workflow run.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public

For more details about GITHUB_TOKEN: Automatic token authentication - GitHub Docs

猸愶笍 Set SSH Private Key deploy_key

Read Create SSH Deploy Key, create your SSH deploy key, and set the deploy_key option like the following.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    deploy_key: ${{ secrets.ACTIONS_DEPLOY_KEY }}
    publish_dir: ./public

猸愶笍 Set Personal Access Token personal_token

Generate a personal access token (repo) and add it to Secrets as PERSONAL_TOKEN, it works as well as ACTIONS_DEPLOY_KEY.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    personal_token: ${{ secrets.PERSONAL_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public

猸愶笍 Set Another GitHub Pages Branch publish_branch

Set a branch name to use as GitHub Pages branch. The default is gh-pages.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_branch: your-branch  # default: gh-pages

猸愶笍 Source Directory publish_dir

A source directory to deploy to GitHub Pages. The default is public. Only the contents of this dir are pushed to GitHub Pages branch, gh-pages by default.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./out  # default: public

猸愶笍 Deploy to Subdirectory destination_dir

This feature is on beta. Any feedback is welcome at Issue #324

A destination subdirectory on a publishing branch. The default is empty.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    destination_dir: subdir

猸愶笍 Filter publishing assets exclude_assets

This feature is on beta. Any feedback is welcome at Issue #163

Set files or directories to exclude from publishing assets. The default is .github. Values should be split with a comma.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    exclude_assets: '.github,exclude-file1,exclude-file2'

Set exclude_assets to empty for including the .github directory to deployment assets.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    deploy_key: ${{ secrets.ACTIONS_DEPLOY_KEY }}   # Recommended for this usage
    # personal_token: ${{ secrets.PERSONAL_TOKEN }} # An alternative
    # github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}     # This does not work for this usage
    exclude_assets: ''

The exclude_assets option supports glob patterns.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    exclude_assets: '.github,exclude-file.txt,exclude-dir/**.txt'

猸愶笍 Add CNAME file cname

To add the CNAME file, we can set the cname option. Alternatively, put your CNAME file into your publish_dir. (e.g. public/CNAME)

For more details about the CNAME file, read the official documentation: Managing a custom domain for your GitHub Pages site - GitHub Docs

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    cname: github.com

猸愶笍 Enable Built-in Jekyll enable_jekyll

If you want GitHub Pages to process your site with the static site generator Jekyll, set enable_jekyll to true.

By default, this action signals to GitHub Pages that the site shall not be processed with Jekyll. This is done by adding an empty .nojekyll file on your publishing branch. When that file already exists, this action does nothing.

Bypassing Jekyll makes the deployment faster and is necessary if you are deploying files or directories that start with underscores, since Jekyll considers these to be special resources and does not copy them to the final site. You only need to set enable_jekyll to true when you want to deploy a Jekyll-powered website and let GitHub Pages do the Jekyll processing.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    enable_jekyll: true

For more details about .nojekyll: Bypassing Jekyll on GitHub Pages - The GitHub Blog

猸愶笍 Allow empty commits allow_empty_commit

By default, a commit will not be generated when no file changes. If you want to allow an empty commit, set the optional parameter allow_empty_commit to true.

For example:

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    allow_empty_commit: true

猸愶笍 Keeping existing files keep_files

By default, existing files in the publish branch (or only in destination_dir if given) will be removed. If you want the action to add new files but leave existing ones untouched, set the optional parameter keep_files to true.

Note that users who are using a Static Site Generator do not need this option in most cases. Please reconsider your project structure and building scripts, or use a built-in feature of a Static Site Generator before you enable this flag.

For example:

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    keep_files: true

With the v3, this option does not support working with the force_orphan option. The next major release (version 4) will support this. See the issue #455

猸愶笍 Deploy to external repository external_repository

By default, your files are published to the repository which is running this action. If you want to publish to another repository on GitHub, set the environment variable external_repository to <username>/<external-repository>.

For example:

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    deploy_key: ${{ secrets.ACTIONS_DEPLOY_KEY }}
    external_repository: username/external-repository
    publish_branch: your-branch  # default: gh-pages
    publish_dir: ./public

You can use deploy_key or personal_token. When you use deploy_key, set your private key to the repository which includes this action and set your public key to your external repository.

Note that GITHUB_TOKEN has no permission to access to external repositories. Please create a personal access token and set it to personal_token like personal_token: ${{ secrets.PERSONAL_TOKEN }}.

Use case:

A GitHub Free Plan account cannot use the GitHub Pages in a private repository. To make your source contents private and deploy it with the GitHub Pages, you can deploy your site from a private repository to a public repository using this option.

  • peaceiris/homepage: A private repository running this action with external_repository: peaceiris/peaceiris.github.io
  • peaceiris/peaceiris.github.io: A public repository using GitHub Pages

猸愶笍 Force orphan force_orphan

We can set the force_orphan: true option. This allows you to make your publish branch with only the latest commit.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    force_orphan: true

猸愶笍 Set Git username and email

Set custom git config user.name and git config user.email. A commit is always created with the same user.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    user_name: 'github-actions[bot]'
    user_email: 'github-actions[bot]@users.noreply.github.com'

Add GitHub Actions bot as a committer

猸愶笍 Set custom commit message

Set a custom commit message. When we create a commit with a message docs: Update some post, a deployment commit will be generated with a message docs: Update some post ${GITHUB_SHA}.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    commit_message: ${{ github.event.head_commit.message }}

Set a custom commit message - GitHub Actions for GitHub Pages

To set a full custom commit message without a triggered commit hash, use the full_commit_message option instead of the commit_message option.

- name: Deploy
  uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
    full_commit_message: ${{ github.event.head_commit.message }}

猸愶笍 Create Git tag

Here is an example workflow.

name: GitHub Pages

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - main
    tags:
      - 'v*.*.*'

jobs:
  deploy:
    runs-on: ubuntu-22.04
    permissions:
      contents: write
    concurrency:
      group: ${{ github.workflow }}-${{ github.ref }}
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v3

      - name: Some build

      - name: Prepare tag
        id: prepare_tag
        if: startsWith(github.ref, 'refs/tags/')
        run: |
          echo "DEPLOY_TAG_NAME=deploy-${TAG_NAME}" >> "${GITHUB_OUTPUT}"

      - name: Deploy
        uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
        with:
          github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
          publish_dir: ./public
          tag_name: ${{ steps.prepare_tag.outputs.DEPLOY_TAG_NAME }}
          tag_message: 'Deployment ${{ github.ref_name }}'

Commands on a local machine.

$ # On a main branch
$ git tag -a "v1.2.3" -m "Release v1.2.3"
$ git push origin "v1.2.3"

$ # After deployment
$ git fetch origin
$ git tag
deploy-v1.2.3  # Tag on the gh-pages branch
v1.2.3         # Tag on the main branch

Tips and FAQ

猸愶笍 Create SSH Deploy Key

Generate your deploy key with the following command.

ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "$(git config user.email)" -f gh-pages -N ""

You will get 2 files:

  • gh-pages.pub is a public key
  • gh-pages is a private key

Next, Go to Repository Settings

  • Go to Deploy Keys and add your public key with the Allow write access
  • Go to Secrets and add your private key as ACTIONS_DEPLOY_KEY
Add your public key Success
Add your private key Success

猸愶笍 First Deployment with GITHUB_TOKEN

The GITHUB_TOKEN has limitations for the first deployment so we have to select the GitHub Pages branch on the repository settings tab. After that, do the second deployment like the following pictures.

First deployment failed Go to the settings tab
Select branch Deploying again and succeed

If the action fails to push the commit or tag with the following error:

/usr/bin/git push origin gh-pages
remote: Write access to repository not granted.
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/username/repository.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403
Error: Action failed with "The process '/usr/bin/git' failed with exit code 128"

Please add the write permission to the permissions.contents in a workflow/job.

permissions:
  contents: write

Alternatively, you can configure the default GITHUB_TOKEN permissions by selecting read and write permissions.

猸愶笍 Use the latest and specific release

We recommend you to use the latest and specific release of this action for stable CI/CD. It is useful to watch this repository (release only) to check the latest release of this action.

For continuous updating, we can use the GitHub native Dependabot. Here is an example configuration of the bot. The config file is located in .github/dependabot.yml.

version: 2
updates:
- package-ecosystem: "github-actions"
  directory: "/"
  schedule:
    interval: "daily"
  labels:
  - "CI/CD"
  commit-message:
    prefix: ci

See the official documentation for more details about the Dependabot: Keeping your dependencies updated automatically - GitHub Docs

猸愶笍 Schedule and Manual Deployment

For deploying regularly, we can set the on.schedule workflow trigger. See Scheduled events | Events that trigger workflows - GitHub Docs

For deploying manually, we can set the on.workflow_dispatch workflow trigger. See Manual events workflow_dispatch | Events that trigger workflows - GitHub Docs

name: GitHub Pages

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - main
  schedule:
    - cron: "22 22 * * *"
  workflow_dispatch:

jobs:
  deploy:
    runs-on: ubuntu-22.04
    permissions:
      contents: write
    concurrency:
      group: ${{ github.workflow }}-${{ github.ref }}
    steps:
    ...

猸愶笍 Release Strategy

cf. support: execution from hashref disabled/broken vs GitHub Actions Security Best Practice? 路 Issue #712 路 peaceiris/actions-gh-pages

Our project builds and provides build assets only when creating a release. This is to prevent the user from executing this action with a specific branch (like main). For example, if we maintain build assets in the main branch and users use this action as follows, a major release including breaking changes will break the CI workflow of the users silently.

- uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@main # Bad example!
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public

In this project, a major tag (e.g. v3) is guaranteed to contain no breaking changes. But, we recommend using a tag or a commit hash for the stability of your workflows.

- uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3.9.3 # tag: Better
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public
- uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@373f7f263a76c20808c831209c920827a82a2847 # commit hash of v3.9.3: Best!
  with:
    github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
    publish_dir: ./public

For verifying the release asset, we can use the following commands.

git clone https://github.com/peaceiris/actions-gh-pages.git
cd ./actions-gh-pages
git checkout v3.9.3
nvm install
nvm use
npm i -g npm
npm ci
npm run build
git diff ./lib/index.js # We will get zero exit code
