Uploaded my first project in Github


Should my HTML and CSS file be in folders? Should I do something different with the README?

The HTML and CSS should be files, just like you have them.

Some people have more elaborate READMe’s, especially if they are collaborating with others. But I don’t think it’s necessary.

If you want, you can look into putting your project on GitHub Pages so that people can click a link and see a live version of your project. You may need to add the responsive meta tag to your head to make it display properly.

Hey there @Porphyrogennitos !

Great job uploading it to github!

No for a site that only has 2 files I think having it the way it is fine. You can start thinking about folders once you start going into react and Node.JS.

One thing I would recommend is enabling GH pages, makes it easier to access the live website from the repository. As for the README I think its fine for a basic static site such as this one. Honestly don’t overcomplicate the README if you don’t have to.

If you want to improve your markdown though there’s a course on the GitHub lab that is pretty good.

Hey @Porphyrogennitos,
You’re further along than I am! I’m still deciding who my tribute page is dedicated to!
Your HTML and CSS files look great! As far as the readme.md, I agree with above statements, it’s not a huge deal right now, but when you do make your own personal site through GH, try using this layout:

  • :wave: Hi, I’m @(yourUsername)

  • :eyes: I’m interested in …

  • :seedling: I’m currently learning …

  • :revolving_hearts: I’m looking to collaborate on …

  • :mailbox: How to reach me …

This was a suggested layout by the GH page (: Hope it helps!

I think you should host it to github pages
