Creation of this WLUG Website
Those with access to the WLUG repository wlug.github.io may have a local Git folder that holds a copy of the source and main website files. These files may then be edited to enhance the website and using the nokola github_deploy bash command the files on GitHub are updated.
GitHub also provide web-hosting service and this WLUG website is accessed via https://wlug.github.io.
Another feature of GitHub is that using a browser a change may be made to the website source code. For example a change of phone number. Upon committing the change, GitHub will run the Nikola updating process. After a few minutes the web-site will be updated. This is done by the workflow yaml code in the src branch file .github/workflows/main.yml.
