re: Deploy a React App as a Github User Page with Yarn VIEW POST


Hi, thanks for writing this tutorial!

I followed the instructions but I'm still getting an error after running deploy from the source branch.

'fatal: A branch named 'master' already exists.'

Do you have any idea why?


Never mind , I managed to get it work. Thanks again for the instructions! :)


I am having the exact same problem right now but I could not get it work. Could you please share how did you solve it?

EDIT: for anybody who would face the same problem: refer here

I could not solve this problem so I came up with another solution: -check out a new branch called "source" which is an exact copy of "master".
-deploy the site to branch "gh-pages" with usual gh-pages npm module. (I use npm in my example, but the script is same.)

  • rebase "master" to "gh-pages" and simply push it. So "master" will have what "gh-pages" will have.

It is a not a clean solution though. Any feedback is much appreciated.
