Your Search has Come to an End!

It's not that all has been done already, however you are close. Soon you will find here what you expect:

  • The Open Sauce Definition.
  • The Open Sauce Initiative Membership Programme.
  • The Open Sauce Initiative Approval Programme.

Also if you yet don't have the feeling for it, you'll get a fine introduction into what the Sauce is, the Mojo behind the things - things you want to share.

Have you seen we got Awesome in our tagline?

$ cd your_repo_root/repo_name
$ git fetch origin
$ git checkout gh-pages

If you're using the GitHub for Mac, simply sync your repository and you'll see the new branch.

Designer Templates

We've crafted some handsome templates for you to use. Go ahead and continue to layouts to browse through them. You can easily go back to edit your page before publishing. After publishing your page, you can revisit the page generator and switch to another theme. Your Page content will be preserved if it remained markdown format.

Rather Drive Stick?

If you prefer to not use the automatic generator, push a branch named gh-pages to your repository to create a page manually. In addition to supporting regular HTML content, GitHub Pages support Jekyll, a simple, blog aware static site generator written by our own Tom Preston-Werner. Jekyll makes it easy to create site-wide headers and footers without having to copy them across every page. It also offers intelligent blog support and other advanced templating features.

Authors and Contributors

You can @mention a GitHub username to generate a link to their profile. The resulting <a> element will link to the contributor's GitHub Profile. For example: In 2007, Chris Wanstrath (@defunkt), PJ Hyett (@pjhyett), and Tom Preston-Werner (@mojombo) founded GitHub.
