Here’s a superquick way to setup GitHub pages for your account, if you haven’t done this yet.
- Just import a new repo from https://github.com/DanielMeixner/GitHubPagesSetup (don’t fork it!).
- Name the repo YOUR-USERNAME.github.io (in my case DanielMeixner.github.io)
- Open the new repo in a Codespace.
**That’s it. You will find your new blog on https://YOUR-USERNAME.github.io in a few minutes. **
In the background automation will trigger a setup of your GitHub page using devcontainer automation and you can start blogging right away.
Hint: In case you already have another repo setup in YOUR-USERNAME.github.io you have to adjust the url in the _config.yml file to your new url. It will follow the pattern https://YOUR-USERNAME.github.com/YOUR-REPO-NAME . In this case you also have to explicitly enable Pages in the settings for your repo.
