One line deployment of your site to gh-pages
Do you want to easily deploy your site to Github pages?
OK, here we go...
You have to upload your complete blog/site to a new Github repository (you know how to do it... if not, probably you need to learn some things before try this one, hehe). As a plus, now your blog/site is version-controlled!
Almost for sure, your site/blog lives in the master branch of the new repository, but you need to generated a
gh-pagesbranch to push your
outputfolder, I mean your site/blog content to deploy... not all the machinery of your site/blog platform (Nikola in my case):
git checkout -b gh-pages
git rm -rf .
git commit -am "First commit to gh-pages branch"
git push origin gh-pages
Now, we will use a git-subtree technique to push the
outputcontent to the
git checkout master
git push origin `git subtree split --prefix output gh-pages`:gh-pages --force
Sweet line... uhh ;-)
Finally, you will need to run the following line every time you want to update your site/blog!
git subtree push --prefix output origin gh-pages
Note: Are you getting
git errors? Just use the sweet line again and force the update...
If you are using Nikola, you can add some of this lines to the
DEPLOY_COMMANDS in your conf.py file and just run
nikola deploy after building your site/blog.
More easier... impossible... ;-)
UPDATE: Not enough happy with step 3 and 4 (essentially because of some
git errors), I figured out a cleaner solution:
New 3. Now, we will use a git-subtree technique to push the
output content to the
gh-pages branch. You will need to run the following lines every time you want to update your site/blog!
git checkout master# you can avoid this line if you are in master...
git subtree split --prefix output -b gh-pages# create a local gh-pages branch containing the splitted output folder
git push -f origin gh-pages:gh-pages# force the push of the gh-pages branch to the remote gh-pages branch at origin
git branch -D gh-pages# delete the local gh-pages because you will need it: ref
