For repositories stored on GitHub, the
github backend allows CMS users to log in directly with their GitHub account. Note that all users must have push access to your content repository for this to work.
Because Github requires a server for authentication, Netlify facilitates basic GitHub authentication.
To enable basic GitHub authentication:
- Follow the authentication provider setup steps in the Netlify docs.
- Add the following lines to your Static CMS
backend: name: github repo: owner-name/repo-name # Path to your GitHub repository # optional, defaults to main # branch: main
Git Large File Storage (LFS)
Please note that the GitHub backend does not support git-lfs.
