I’ve frequently heard questions about getting started with Git and utilizing GitHub pages. Things like, where to start and if there are any good resources to follow. It got to a point where I deemed it worthy of a tutorial! In this video I touch on:
- installing Git
- making basic Git configurations
- creating a GitHub repository
- pushing to a remote repository from a local one
- creating a
gh-pagesbranch for project-based hosting (e.g. https://username.github.io/repo)

- custom styles
- custom text
- self-managed durations
