I’m happy to announce that a long-awaited feature is available today:
sourcehut pages. SourceHut users can use this service to host static
websites for any of their own domains, and every user is also being
given “username.srht.site”.

You can use any static site generator: Jekyll, Hugo, Doxygen, or your
own cool new thing. You can publish from git.sr.ht or hg.sr.ht, or you
can set up any publishing workflow you prefer — you just need to upload
a tarball. Every domain has TLS automatically configured for you. You
get your personal subdomain on srht.site, unlimited
bring-your-own-domains, and up to 1G of storage per site.

Check out https://srht.site for the full details, but here are some
shell commands you can run right now to be live in 3 minutes.

First, generate a personal access key and add it to your environment,
something like this:


Then write a simple “index.html” file:

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8" />
<title>My sourcehut page</title>
<h1>My sourcehut page</h1>
<p>Welcome to my cool sourcehut page!

Put it in a tarball:

tar -cvz index.html > site.tar.gz

And publish it, being sure to replace “username” with your sr.ht username:

curl --oauth2-bearer "$bearer_token" \
    -Fcontent=@site.tar.gz \

Hey presto, your new website is live! Check out the rest of the
documentation on https://srht.site for tips on automating this process,
setting up a static site generator like Hugo, and how to use your own
domain name.
