Using github actions to deploy pages on github pages.

GitHub Actions



Github Pages CMS

Generate the CMS data files for a static site. Just to keep the basic structure. When the repo that has the data is pushed just regenerate them.

Followed the quickstart and created a workflow for my personal website so it generates a basic list of links to display on the main page.

Stopping automatic page generation

From: Doc

Under your repository name, click Settings. In the “Code and automation” section of the sidebar, click Pages. Under “GitHub Pages”, use the Source drop-down menu and select None.

Since it is a, it build from a branch, so I changed the default work branch from the main to staging, so the github action will push the code to the main.
