What are root-relative links?

To better understand why links often break when deploying to Github Pages, first we need to learn what root-relative links are.

Root-relative links1 are links that start with a forward slash (/). When clicked, a root-relative link ignores the path location of the current URL. Which part of an URL is the path? Everything that comes after the domain. The path of the following URL, for example, https://example.com/blog/articles is /blog/articles.

A root-relative link always leads to the same path within the current domain, regardless of where it is found. Consider the following examples:

Deploying my portfolio website on Github Pages using Github Actions.

I recently deployed  my portfolio site and wanted to try out github actions and this is my experience of automating the deployment.

This article is more focused on how you can use the GitHub actions and how easy it is to deploy your code to GitHub pages rather than the portfolio site code.So every time you make an update or build to your website ,the changes are automatically reflected and this automated deploying process makes work much faster.

The way GitHub action works is you create actions in your repositories by creating one or more yaml files and these are called workflows.Workflows now can handle build tasks like CI CD. This means you use the action to test your code and push the site to the desired hosting platform (in this case GitHub pages ) when the main branch changes .

First step assuming that you have a GitHub account is to create a repository having your website code in it.Now I have a bootstrap website but in the future I do plan on adding node JS so I already added package.json.
