Deploying React on Github Pages

Hey there! If you’re reading this, then you’re probably trying to figure out how you can deploy your React App to Github Pages or you want a quick way to get your React app running on the public web. Say no more! In this guide, you’ll learn how to deploy your React App to Github Pages.

What you need to follow along:

  • Node js
  • Npm (Pre-installed with Node) or Yarn
  • A Github Account
  • Git

Prepare the App

I have already prepared a demo application with Create-React-App so that you can follow along quickly. If you prefer deploying a custom app you’ve built with Create-React-App , these steps should also work perfectly for you. To clone the app, open your terminal and run:

#react #github

How native is React Native? | React Native vs Native App Development

If you are undertaking a mobile app development for your start-up or enterprise, you are likely wondering whether to use React Native. As a popular development framework, React Native helps you to develop near-native mobile apps. However, you are probably also wondering how close you can get to a native app by using React Native. How native is React Native?

In the article, we discuss the similarities between native mobile development and development using React Native. We also touch upon where they differ and how to bridge the gaps. Read on.

A brief introduction to React Native

Let’s briefly set the context first. We will briefly touch upon what React Native is and how it differs from earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is a popular JavaScript framework that Facebook has created. You can use this open-source framework to code natively rendering Android and iOS mobile apps. You can use it to develop web apps too.

Facebook has developed React Native based on React, its JavaScript library. The first release of React Native came in March 2015. At the time of writing this article, the latest stable release of React Native is 0.62.0, and it was released in March 2020.

Although relatively new, React Native has acquired a high degree of popularity. The “Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2019” report identifies it as the 8th most loved framework. Facebook, Walmart, and Bloomberg are some of the top companies that use React Native.

The popularity of React Native comes from its advantages. Some of its advantages are as follows:

  • Performance: It delivers optimal performance.
  • Cross-platform development: You can develop both Android and iOS apps with it. The reuse of code expedites development and reduces costs.
  • UI design: React Native enables you to design simple and responsive UI for your mobile app.
  • 3rd party plugins: This framework supports 3rd party plugins.
  • Developer community: A vibrant community of developers support React Native.

Why React Native is fundamentally different from earlier hybrid frameworks

Are you wondering whether React Native is just another of those hybrid frameworks like Ionic or Cordova? It’s not! React Native is fundamentally different from these earlier hybrid frameworks.

React Native is very close to native. Consider the following aspects as described on the React Native website:

  • Access to many native platforms features: The primitives of React Native render to native platform UI. This means that your React Native app will use many native platform APIs as native apps would do.
  • Near-native user experience: React Native provides several native components, and these are platform agnostic.
  • The ease of accessing native APIs: React Native uses a declarative UI paradigm. This enables React Native to interact easily with native platform APIs since React Native wraps existing native code.

Due to these factors, React Native offers many more advantages compared to those earlier hybrid frameworks. We now review them.

A Simple Guide to Github Page Deployment

Long story short: Jekyll is a template engine changing

markdowndocuments on staticHTMLwebpages, that you can then host anywyere, because you don’t need databases or server that has PHP or Python.

Usual Process

Normally the process of adding new post looks like this:

  • I write markdown document with setting parameters like title, date and tags
  • when I’m happy with what I wrote (never), I commit changes and push it to repository on GitHub. Repository name comes from my nick and is also address for blog
  • Github after pushing to branch master builds website from sources using Jekyll - probably something like running jekyll build
  • result of Jekyll build is not present in a repository, but you see it right now after visiting bloga page

Deploying a React App Using GitHub Pages and GitHub Actions

A simple guide to hosting your single page application.


I recently created a website using the  Create React App starter template to demonstrate an npm package I developed. I thought it would be pretty straightforward to deploy this site using GitHub Pages, however, I was wrong. After some trial and error, I managed to sort it out. This article aims at recreating the scenario and walking you through the process of solving each problem we encounter along the way.

#1 Starting point

Let’s start with a common base. We’ll begin by creating a React app using the Create React App utility and also add the code to a GitHub repository. I’ve used the following command to generate this sample React app.

npx create-react-app <project directory> --template typescript

#github-actions #typescript #react #create-react-app #github-pages

How to Deploy React Apps for Free With GitHub Pages

GitHub Pages has emerged as an excellent way for developers to deploy their projects online for free. It’s fast, free, and pretty simple as it lets you host static websites **directly **from your GitHub repositories.

Getting Started

In this tutorial, I’ll take you through all the steps involved in hosting a React App on GitHub pages.


  1. GitHub Account
  2. Git installed and set up on your local machine
  3. Npm and Node.js(v8.10.0 or higher) installed on your machine

Set up React App

For the simplicity of this tutorial, we’ll be using create-react-app to set up our react project. Run the following command in the terminal to get your react app set up:

$ npx create-react-app demo-app

Image for post


Note that you could have also installed create-react-appusing npm install create-react-app and then run the command create-react-app demo-app . Developers often use npx instead of npm as it lets you execute package commands without having to install that particular package on your local system.

Initialize Git repository

Go to GitHub and create a repository for your react app. Once you’ve created the repository, run the following commands from the directory where you created your react app.
