Creating and Updating GitHub Pages

This is a quick example on how I have created GitHub pages for the JTinyCsvParser documentation.

Create and Push the initial gh-pages branch

First create a new branch, which is a subtree of the master repository. From the root directory I create subtree, which points to the html pages:

git subtree split --prefix JTinyCsvParser/documentation/build/html --branch gh-pages

Then checkout the branch:

git checkout gh-pages

And push it to GitHub:

git push -u origin gh-pages


Now whenever you commit and push something to the master branch you can apply this simple workflow to update the gh-pages branch:

git checkout gh-pages
git merge -X theirs -X subtree=JTinyCsvParser/documentation/build/html master
git push -u origin gh-pages
