I have Hugo blog, hosted on Github Pages and using Travis CI to deploy it.
But at new year, Travis CI take long time to queue my build.
Travis CI Status: Container-based Linux over capacity
As alternatif, I use Gitlab CI and mirroring my blog repository from Github to Gitlab.

We need to create environment variable
GITHUB_ACCESS_TOKEN at Gitlab. Just go to Settings->CI/DI->Secret Variables.
You can get your Github Personal Token at https://github.com/settings/tokens.
Lets try to build it by commiting some changes to master branch on Gitlab.
Now my blog is deployed from Gitlab CI to Github Pages, hare what look like on Github Pages repository.
(you also can read Indonesian version on my blog)

Why are you using Gitlab? Why not just deploy from Github?
This post was made before Github add the Github Action feature. So, the way to deploy Hugo to Github pages is using external CI/DI like Travis and Gitlab CI. But now, we have CI/DI on Github, it called Github Action. I have try it, and it was awesome.
You can check the repo: github.com/gohugoid/gohugoid-web (it's using Github Action)
