Autodeploy to Github Pages with Travis CI

Github pages are a common way to create a website for your open-source project.
Github provides a website generator tool which simply reads the README file from your repository.
The big disadvantage is that there’s no auto deployment for your this kind of website. You always have to run the generator manually.
To solve this problem we need a third-party computing engine that automatically updates our page. This is the perfect job for Travis CI.
Travis CI is a Github integrated continuous testing platform that runs tests for different development frameworks. It triggers a test whenever you make a commit on your Travis registered repository. We will use Travis to update our page whenever we make a commit to our repository.

Every package manager of course manages a different resource, we will use composer for php packages, npm for everything related to Node.js and Bower for web packages.

Backup Public GitHub Gists

To manage my code snippets I’m using GitHubGist connected with Gistbox.

Sadly none of this services providing a backup nor a download function for the gist files. That’s why I came upwith the idea to download them with PowerShell script.

For first my script only can download public gists, because I don’t know how to implement an authentication, luckily each of my gists is public. I recommend you to do the same, it’s the idea of OpenSource.

So here’s the script:
