GitLab provides templates for the most popular Static Site Generators (SSGs). You can create a new project from a template and run the CI/CD pipeline to generate a Pages website.
Use a template when you want to test GitLab Pages or start a new project that’s already configured to generate a Pages site.
- On the left sidebar, at the top, select Create new () and New project/repository.
- Select Create from Template.
Next to one of the templates starting with Pages, select Use template.
- Complete the form and select Create project.
- On the left sidebar, select Build > Pipelines and select Run pipeline to trigger GitLab CI/CD to build and deploy your site.
When the pipeline is finished, go to Deploy > Pages to find the link to your Pages website.
For every change pushed to your repository, GitLab CI/CD runs a new pipeline that immediately publishes your changes to the Pages site.
To view the HTML and other assets that were created for the site, download the job artifacts.
