Hi Kevin, thank you for your feedback!

Regarding your questions:

  1. Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I had to run my local server, wait to compile, (update packages if needed), change content, commit, and push. I just wanted to change my content and push. Plus be confident that whatever markdown editor (albeit with GFM) would reflect how my page would look like.

  2. I added that html myself. I took inspiration from bootstrap's README to center the title header. Since markdown accepts a limited amount of html I can manipulate certain positioning without having to resort to css.

Using Gitlab Pipeline has been great to automating my personal site's development flow -- since I only have to worry about my content. Hopefully Github Actions will work in a similar fashion and can extend to Github Pages.
