Add dynamic content to GitHub Pages

Overview

Problem


Static site generators have taken the web development world by storm. They’re fast, cheap and secure. Unfortunately, one major drawback is that they don’t support server-side code. As such, you can’t easily add dynamic components or content to a static site using a traditional server-based approach.

How Flex.io Helps


Leveraging serverless functions, you can set up API endpoints to power dynamic content on GitHub Pages and other static sites. With Flex.io, you can quickly deploy functions that handle requests from libraries such as Charts.js, D3.js, and Bokeh.
