We integrated the swiftype technology into our website. Initial setup was super easy and the service has been amazing so far. Swiftype dashboard offers many services to help you understand and optimize the search experience for your users. I highly recommend Swiftype to any website or app that needs an easy to setup, powerful and reliable search solution. The sales and the support team are amazing!

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.
