GitHub Pages is a versatile platform that offers an easy-to-use solution for GitHub users to host static web pages, user blogs, project documentation, and even entire books. This powerful tool provides a seamless hosting experience by integrating with the Cloudron app.
One of the key features of GitHub Pages is its integration with Jekyll software, which facilitates static website and blog generation. Users can store the Jekyll source pages for their websites as a Git repository within the app. Notably, every time this repository gets updated, the GitHub Pages servers automatically regenerate the site.
Another significant feature is the app's use of the GitHub pages gem. It strictly supports only those Jekyll versions and plugins that are compatible with GitHub's Pages feature. This ensures optimal performance and robust compatibility while using different versions or plugins.
