Deploying on GitLab Pages#

Just like with GitHub Pages, JupyterLite can easily be deployed on GitLab Pages, using the jupyterlite CLI and setting the output_path to the public folder in your .gitlab-ci.yml file.

Suppose that your notebooks are stored in the content folder; and you don’t require any additional python dependencies and configuration overrides, the .gitlab-ci.yml could look like.

image: python
pages:
  stage: deploy
  before_script:
    - python -m pip install jupyterlite
  script:
    - jupyter lite build --contents content --output-dir public
  artifacts:
    paths:
      - public # mandatory, other folder won't work
  only:
    - main # the branch you want to publish

Hint

When you’re looking for a JupyterLite GitLab template, there is a minimal example and a more involved example.
