Developers describe Divshot as "Front-End Application Platform". Divshot makes building and hosting front-end web applications simple. Build locally and deploy using a simple command-line interface. Divshot supports multiple environments, pushState routing, atomic deploys, and more. On the other hand, GitHub Pages is detailed as "Public webpages freely hosted and easily published". Public webpages hosted directly from your GitHub repository. Just edit, push, and your changes are live.

Divshot and GitHub Pages can be primarily classified as "Static Web Hosting" tools.

Some of the features offered by Divshot are:

On the other hand, GitHub Pages provides the following key features:

Decisions about Divshot and GitHub Pages

We use Netlify to host static websites.

The reasons for choosing Netlify over GitHub Pages are as follows:

  • Netfily can bind multiple domain names, while GitHub Pages can only bind one domain name
  • With Netfily, the original repository can be private, while GitHub Pages free tier requires the original repository to be public

In addition, in order to use CDN, we use Netlify DNS.

      How developers use Divshot and GitHub Pages
      Keen uses
      Divshot

      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!

      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.
