Deploying a folder using Travis CI

You can deploy any kind of web content to a GitHub Page using the following steps:

  1. Install Ruby!
  2. Create a Travis CI account and link your repo.
  3. Using an account with permissions to write in the repo create a GitHub Access Token https://github.com/settings/tokens
  4. Encrypt your token using locally on your machine the following commands:

     gem install travis
     travis encrypt GH_TOKEN="github-token" --add
