How do you submit the "view in browser" versions of your project?


#1

Hey guys! When submitting your project, how do you link to the “view in browser” version of your repository? I tried copying the url syntax of the other ones with my own project, but it keeps saying it can’t find it.
Thanks!

You need to put your project on a server (so it can be accessed via the interwebz), then copy and paste the link of the home page of your app on the server to the appropriate place in the student submissions.

For a static site (HTML/CSS and maybe some JavaScript) most use GitHub Pages.

For a Rails app, most use Heroku.

Both are free (Heroku has a free tier, which is fine for a few, not very busy, apps).

Configuring a GitHub Pages site is pretty easy to do, if you already have your repo pushed to GitHub :wink:
