Telegram now supports GitHub


Telegram supports GitHub as well as Dropbox as backing store for Telegram site.

After you sign up with Telegram, you will have the option to link your Telegram account with your GitHub account via a blue button on the bottom of the Telegram home page.

When you link your Telegram account with your GitHub account, Telegram will add a unique SSH public key to your GitHub account. Telegram uses this SSH key to read your GitHub repositories.

You can create a new Telegram site on GitHub by forking the my-blog sample site which contains a Home page, and About page, and a sample blog post.

GitHub support is generally better for larger sites as it's more efficient to get the contents of a GitHub repository.

Next up in GitHub support is automatically adding a service hook so that Telegram will automatically publish your site when you push to your repository.
