Hosting for a list of my FOSS games

Hosting for a list of my FOSS games

Postby eugeneloza » 02 Feb 2017, 14:04

Hi all!
I need some site to make a presentable page for my FOSS projects (mostly games), actually it needs:
Screenshots
Download link
Github link
Descritpion page
Maybe some simple feedback mechanism (rating, comments).
Ideally if that would be a part of some platform, where my projects can also be presented in parallel (like at sourceforge).
It looks like gitch.io is the thing I'm looking for, but maybe you have some other suggestions?

GitHub Pages should fit the bill. You just need to create a GitHub repo with your website's source and it will host it at e.g. `eugeneloza.github.io`.

See e.g. https://opendungeons.github.io and its source: https://github.com/OpenDungeons/opendungeons.github.io (plain HTML)

Or on GitLab: https://osslugaru.gitlab.io and its source: https://gitlab.com/osslugaru/osslugaru.gitlab.io (reST files used to generate static HTML)

Itch.io also offers this for games listed in their store. Would have the advantage of additional exposure through their shop and easy "pay what you want" donations.

Edit, Ahh wait... you mentioned it already... I was confused by the "g" you added to the name...

If you want to use Jekyll on the site, you can see the source code of https://libre-gaming.net/

Julius, oops, my bad :) That was exactly what I've meant. Thanks.
FaTony, thanks! But I don't see why would I need to use Jekyll (just a very simple CMS as far as I've understood, right?).

One of the features of Jekyll is that it is supported on GitHub pages. So you don't need to bother with building and uploading.
