Github Pages - Free HTML/CSS/JavaScript Hosting

January 3, 2011

Quite recently I’ve started to use github as a free hosting service for HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

The way to do this is by using github pages. Normally this service is intended to show more information about your project. A bit like an extended README file. What I’m doing is (ab)using the service for personal use.

Advantages

  • It’s free
  • You’re site is versioned. This means that you can always revert to previous versions and correct mistakes.
  • It’s open-source: People can fork your code and start doing some awesome things with it themselves.

My sites

Currently I’ve uploaded all the examples for my Everything At Once blogpost. Apart from that I’m also working on a site to show the latest weather information in Oostduinkerke, my sailing place in Belgium.
