Publish

To publish with GitHub Pages, simply create a branch called gh-pagesin your repository. GitHub will build your site automatically and publish it at http://yourusername.github.io/repositoryname/.
If there are problems with loading assets like CSS files and images, make sure that the baseurl in the _config.ymlis set correctly (it should say /repositoryname).

If you want to host your website somewhere else than GitHub (or just would like to customize and build your site locally), please check out the Jekyll documentation.
