Use npm.

npm install --save-dev gulp-gh-pages

Define a deploy task in your gulpfile.js (as below) which can be used to push to gh-pages going forward.

var gulp = require('gulp');
var ghPages = require('gulp-gh-pages');
 
gulp.task('deploy', function() {
  return gulp.src('./dist/**/*')
    .pipe(ghPages());
});

Now, you should be able to call your task by doing:

gulp deploy

By default gulp-gh-pages assumes the current working directory is a git repository and uses its remote url. If your gulpfile.js is not in a git repository, or if you want to push to a different remote url, you can specify it. Ensure you have write access to the repository.

The branch where deploy will by done. Change to "master" for username.github.io projects.

options.cacheDir

Default: .publish

Set the directory path to keep a cache of the repository. If it doesn't exist, gulp-gh-pages automatically create it.

Default: true

Allow you to make a build on the defined branch without pushing it to master. Useful for dry run.

Type: Boolean
Default: false

Force adding files to the gh-pages branch, even if they are ignored by .gitignore or .gitignore_global.
