SourceHut pages quick start


The steps for publishing your capsule are:


Generate a personal access token

Create a tarball with your capsule's contents

Upload your tarball to pages.sr.ht


Once you’re live, we’ll look at ways to automate the process.


Your personal access token


You can generate your personal access token via meta.sr.ht:


OAuth 2.0 personal access tokens


Write it down for later reference.


Building your tarball


Here's a simple example. Let's say you write this file to index.gmi:


# My sourcehut capsule

Welcome to my cool sourcehut capsule!

You can create a tarball for it like so:


$ tar -cvz index.gmi > site.tar.gz

Add any number of files other than index.gmi to expand this.


Using a static capsule generator


Here's another example of a capsule using gssg:


$ gssg
$ tar -C public -cvz . > site.tar.gz

gssg


You can use any tool, just so long as it outputs static content.


Uploading your tarball


Once you have a tarball, upload it to pages.sr.ht:


$ curl --oauth2-bearer "access token" \
    -Fcontent=@site.tar.gz \
    -Fprotocol=GEMINI \
    https://pages.sr.ht/publish/username.srht.site

Substitute “access token” with your personal access token, and username with your sr.ht username.


Want to use your own domain name? Review the extra steps here.


Once you run this command, your capsule should now be live at gemini://username.srht.site!
