GitHub Pages for a repository compiling using Travis CI
Here I describe how you could use Travis CI to generate e.g. a Sphinx documentation when you already have a GitHub token for Travsi CI and want to reuse it.

First of all check if you have already a personal access token.

GitHub personal access tokens

If not, you can follow these instructions

On Travis we need to grant access to the GitHub repository. Login to Travis and in your account settings under repositories you can enable a project.

Travis grant access to GitHub repository

The next thing is to generate a new secure string for your .travis.yml file. First we need to get the GitHub personal access token, which you generated beforehand. Run the following command to get a list of all your access tokens.

curl -X GET -u <your_github_username>

You should get a JSON response which looks like this

	"id": 1234567,
	"url": "",
	"app": {
		"name": "travis: token for pushing from travis (API)",
		"url": "",
		"client_id": "00000000000000000000"
	"token": "1abc234d56efghi789",
	"note": "travis: token for pushing from travis",
	"note_url": null,
	"created_at": "2014-01-01T12:00:00Z",
	"updated_at": "2014-01-01T12:00:00Z",
	"scopes": [

So we are ready to generate the secure string for Travis. Be sure that you have installed travis rubygem using the following command gem install travis. Open a terminal and go to the folder where .travis.yml lays and add the secure string to it

cd /path/to/the/.travsi.yml/file
travis encrypt -r <user>/<repository> GH_TOKEN=<token> --add

That’s all the magic. You are done and can push your changes to the GitHub repository which automatically deploys it on Travis CI.
