Update your github account or organization pages repository

Project Description

GitHub User or Organization Pages require a dedicated repository based on the account name (see [GitHub Pages documentation][doc]). In order to let update your User or Organization Pages easily, ghp-update performs the following actions :

  • Clones your Pages repository to a temporary folder
  • Replaces the repository content with the new content you want to publish
  • Commits and pushes all changes

[doc]: “User, Organization and Project Pages - GitHub Help”


Usage: ghp-update [-m “Custom commit message”] CONTENT_DIR GIT_REPOSITORY_URL

-m MESSAGE The commit message to use when adding the new content
-h, --help show this help message and exit

ghp-update deletes all repository contents before copying the new content to your repository.

You can specify a custom commit message by using the -m option.


ghp-update is distributed under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE version 2. See the LICENSE file for more information


ghp-update has been inspired by the [ghp-import][ghp-import] utility !

[ghp-import]: “Easily import docs to your gh-pages branch”
