Rebuilding Your Github Pages Site

This happens to me a lot because I go so long without writing a post. By the time I’ve gotten around to writing something, I’ve had my laptop reimaged, or I’ve deleted the repo. So I end up having to recreate the entire Github pages setup… and I don’t remember how!

To my future, befuddled self, please take heed:

1
2
3
4
5
6
git clone $GITHUB_PAGES_REPO gp
cd gp
git checkout source
bundle update
git clone $GITHUB_PAGES_REPO _deploy
bundle exec rake gen_deploy

You can even cut and paste. Trust me! This is yourself you’re talking to.
