To publish your Kiln site to Sourcehut pages automatically, you'll need to add the following build manifest in the file ".build.yml" in the root of your site repository:


image: alpine/edge
oauth: pages.sr.ht/PAGES:RW
packages:
  - kiln
environment:
  site: example.com
sources:
  - https://git.sr.ht/~$username/$site
tasks:
  - build: |
      cd $site
      kiln --html
  - package: |
      cd $site
      tar -C dst -cvz . > ../site.tar.gz
      tar -C html -cvz . > ../html.tar.gz
  - upload: |
      acurl -f https://pages.sr.ht/publish/$site \
        -Fcontent=@site.tar.gz \
        -Fprotocol=GEMINI
      acurl -f https://pages.sr.ht/publish/$site \
        -Fcontent=@html.tar.gz \
        -Fprotocol=HTTPS

This build manifest builds Gemini and HTML versions of your site and uploads both to Sourcehut pages. It will run automatically whenever you push a commit to your site repository, assuming that it is hosted on Sourcehut. Be sure to point your domain name towards Sourcehut pages' servers.
