You may have noticed the links on the right like “Edit this page” that takes one to Github. Let’s set those up.
Go to github and create a new repository. Use the name of your side for the repo name, such as “some.site.org”. If you want to use something else, you can edit your
config.toml file to adjust.
You man have noticed that Github suggested some next steps with a
remote add using the name “origin”. Docsy is already using that, however, from when you cloned it. So we’ll have to pick a new name.
cd /path/to/my-existing-site git remote add github https://github.com/yourID/some.site.org
Let’s change our default banch to “main” to match Github’s defaults.
git branch -m main
Now we can add, commit and push it up to Github
git add --all git commit -m "first commit of new site" git push github
You’ll notice something interesting when you go back to look at Github; all the contributers on the right. That’s because you’re dealing with a clone of Docsy and you can still pull in updates and changes from original project.
It may have been better to clone it via github
