Hi @yosvke. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- To host your app on GitHub Pages, especially since your project uses Vite, you'll need to follow a series of steps. Unfortunately, the extracts provided do not include specific instructions for Vite projects combined with GitHub Pages. However, I can guide you through a general approach based on the information available: 1. Create a GitHub Repository: If you haven't already, create a new public GitHub repository. For a project site, the repository name can be anything. If deploying to a user or organization site, the repository name should take the form <username>.github.io, where <username> is your GitHub username or organization name. 2. Prepare Your Project for Deployment: Since your project uses Vite, you'll typically need to build it for production. The extracts don't provide specific commands for Vite projects targeting GitHub Pages, but a general approach with Vite would involve running the build command:
npm run build

npm run build

This command compiles your app into static files in the dist directory. 3. Deploy to GitHub Pages: The extracts mention using the gh-pages package for deploying projects that require a build step, like those created with React or, in your case, Vite. First, you need to install the gh-pages package:
npm install gh-pages --save-dev

npm install gh-pages --save-dev

Then, you would typically add scripts to your package.json to deploy your build directory (dist for Vite projects) to GitHub Pages. However, since specific instructions for this part are not provided in the extracts, I recommend consulting the Vite documentation (https://vitejs.dev/guide/static-deploy.html#github-pages) and the gh-pages npm package documentation (https://www.npmjs.com/package/gh-pages) for the exact steps. 4. Configure GitHub Pages: Go to your GitHub repository Settings, click the Pages option under the Code and automation section, and configure it to deploy from the branch where your build is pushed (usually gh-pages if using the gh-pages package). Remember, the steps above are a general guide. For detailed instructions tailored to Vite projects, please refer to the Vite and gh-pages npm package documentation. Since the extracts do not provide a direct link to relevant documentation, searching for "Vite deployment" and "gh-pages npm package" should help you find the resources you need. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
