Here’s a superquick way to setup GitHub pages for your account, if you haven’t done this yet.

  1. Just import a new repo from (don’t fork it!). Screenshot of import dialog
  2. Name the repo (in my case
  3. Open the new repo in a Codespace.

**That’s it. You will find your new blog on 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 you have to adjust the url in the _config.yml file to your new url. It will follow the pattern . In this case you also have to explicitly enable Pages in the settings for your repo.
