GitHub is a provider of Internet hosting for software development and version control using Git. No matter where the next several years take you, if you are working with code, computers and projects you are going to end up interacting with GitHub.
Today we are going to create a website directly from a repository on GitHub.com.
A repository is a collection of files, etc… in our GitHub Account.
A website made from a GitHub Repository is referred to commonly as GitHub Pages. We only get to host one website per account.
GitHub Pages are public webpages hosted and published through GitHub.
Confused yet? Here is some documentation for reference. Don’t worry, we’ll do this together.
- Use the folder on your desktop called WebPortfolio.
- Put your portfolio pages and folders inside (CSS, JS, Images, index.html, etc…)
- Make sure everything you want is in that folder!
Task #1 – Make an Account at GitHub.com. Choose a professional username like your first initial then lastname. Not sleepydude82
- In the upper-right corner of any page, use the drop-down menu, and select New repository.
- Enter your GitHub username as the repository name along with .github.io (wbohmann.github.io)
- Select Add a ReadMe file
- Choose Upload Files (from here you will select your folders and pages inside the WebPortfolio folder on your desktop)
- Drag those files / folders over and GitHub will upload
- Under your repository name, click settings
- In the left sidebar click Pages – you will see the address to your github hosted website. mine is wbohmann.github.io yours should be similar.
- Your repository should now have all of your portfolios files and folders.
- It does take GitHub a little time to make your page viewable. A couple minutes generally.
Congratulations! Your Portfolio is now hosted on GitHub and you will publish changes to your files here instead of the CAWD Server. Think of GitHub as your WebHosting provider.
You also have a nice professional web address for Free!
Please use this form to share the link to your website. (should be your username.github.io)
