I am trying to implement a static website. Written mainly in html / css with a small javscript.
Originally, I was just going to upload it via FTP, Filezilla or something similar, but this seems like an outdated technology. I also wanted more control over the process.
I looked at Heroku and Digital Ocean in search of a cloud solution, but for a beginner like me, it's quite intimidating.
I found Netlify that looks good. Publish the code on Github and then implement the site through Netlfiy.
In the Netlify documentation there are all these references to the command line. I avoided Heroku, although I wanted to learn, because the command line was too confusing. I will learn the command line eventually, but now I want to keep it basic.
My question is this: is it necessary to use the command line to load a website or is it enough to do it through the Netlify online application?
In addition, in the Netlify application, they request basic compilation settings (see attached image). I have no idea what to put here. Is it acceptable to leave this blank? There is no Node.js or any background technology involved in my site.
Generally speaking, am I using the correct technique to implement my site here? How to upload my original code to Github and then implement it through Netlify? Is this a legitimate method? Or am I making a rookie mistake?
Everything seems to be working fine, I think I am right after a confirmation from more experienced developers that I am doing the "right" thing.
