      When my SSL cert MaxCDN was expiring on my personal site I decided it was a good time to revamp some things. Since GitHub Services is depreciated I can no longer have #CDN cache purges automated among other things. So I decided on the following: GitHub Pages, Netlify, Let's Encrypt and Jekyll. Staying the same was Bootstrap, jQuery, Grunt & #GoogleFonts.

      What's awesome about GitHub Pages is that it has a #CDN (Fastly) built-in and anytime you push to master, it purges the cache instantaneously without you have to do anything special. Netlify is magic, I highly recommend it to anyone using #StaticSiteGenerators.

      For the most part, everything went smoothly. The only things I had issues with were the following:

      • If you want to point www to GitHub Pages you need to rename the repo to www
      • If you edit something in the _config.yml you need to restart bundle exec jekyll s or changes won't show
      • I had to disable the Grunt htmlmin module. I replaced it with Jekyll layout that compresses HTML for #webperf

      Last but certainly not least, I made a donation to Let's Encrypt. If you use their service consider doing it too: https://letsencrypt.org/donate/

      Keen uses Divshot to host internal and customer-facing analytics dashboards. We develop locally with the Divshot CLI and then use it to deploy. It’s great to have one tool that does both. The web interface is handy when you can’t get to the command line. Overall we’re really happy with Divshot – our static site workflow is better and more accessible than ever!

      t is integrated with the Jekyll software for static web site and blog generation. The Jekyll source pages for a web site can be stored on GitHub as a Git repository, and when the repository is updated the GitHub Pages servers will automatically regenerate the site.

      Our main purpose for GitHub pages is inspecting open source code for the purpose of finding out if someone else has already solved a solution to a problem we're working on and whether or not it fits into our plan.

      We take advantage of Githubs very lightweight, but powerful static file hosting for our front-end static files. But we have a CDN in front of this to ensure best performance for users anywhere.

      We often use Github Pages to easily develop and deploy marketing sites. Typically we couple middleman as our static site generator and then host the pages on github pages.

      We dogfood our platform by deploying all of our front-ends to it. Our dashboard, lander, documentation, etc. are all deployed on Divshot.
