Just for fun, I built a new personal site: https://aloci.gitlab.io/lc-docusaurus.

In the GitLab project, to keep organized I use different branches branches:

  • main for everything - the branch of it all.
  • blog for blog posts (adding new ones, updating existing ones, and fixing typos).
  • content for website content (updating the about page and adding new projects).
  • design for design and frontend stuff (changing fonts and colors).
  • features for different features (adding Vale or a contact form).
  • pages for configuring GitLab pages for deploying the website.

To deploy the website with GitLab pages, in the project root directory I created a new file gitlab-ci.yml with the following configuration:

image: node:15.12-alpine3.13

    - deploy

    stage: deploy
        - npm install
        - npm run build
        - mv ./build ./public
            - public
            - main
