Running your wordpress site on github

Running a wp instance requires you to pay for hosting. Even though you publish occasionally you need to keep the instance to running. What you can do is to build static html, css webpages. There are several builders available which does this. But you will miss wp customization and several other features in those static site builders.

To solve this issue, i created gitpress.

This allows you to run the wordpress site locally and when you publish the posts it converts your wordpress site to static html and pushes to github pages.

This makes uses of two components

  1. Docker

  2. Simply Static wordpress plugin

The docker is very helpful to run the wordpress instance across mutliple platforms. The simply static plugin is used for converting the site to static html.

You can download gitpress from here

here is the live example for github in action
