GitHub Pages

GitHub’s Pages service seems ready-made for Fargo, so we’re hooking them up. Here’s how and why. In November I asked for a simple web server connected to Dropbox. I needed this for the upcoming version of Fargo. Until a couple of days ago we didn’t have an answer.

The Pages service works does what we need. It means that users will have to learn how to use GitHub. Yes, it’s technical, and will be hard for some users. But it’s a beginning. We’ll make it easier.

It’s good. A place to start building.

PS: Just for fun I put a version of this announcement on my GitHub-hosted site.
