How can I automatically deploy a Jekyll website on a production server?

I have build locally a Jekyll website but would like to automatically sync the _site folder with the production server. I have been searching for different solutions but none of them have worked, neither with Github nor Bitbucket pipelines.

I am looking for an easy solution that can help me sync the _site folder every time I push changes to the master locally.

I would appreciate any help!

Hi Anthony,

Did you have a look at Netlify? It's free and pretty awesome! :)

I saw it, haven't tried it yet. However I was looking for a way to deploy without this third party app. I guess I'm gonna have to try Netlify! ;]

But what`s nice is that netlify syncs with your github repo and automatically deploy the app when something is changed in your repo.
