Jekyll Webmentions and GitHub Pages

I had to change my workflow because I am new to the right way of doing this and I’m finding my groove in all of it. First, I was pushing all of my build files and ignoring _site folder to GitHub Pages and letting it build the site. That was just fine until I wanted to use Jekyll Webmentions gem and it was outside GitHub’s safe boundary that I received the ah-ha moment when I read this support answer. They won’t run them and it took me a while to find out what the error message in the email that I received from GitHub Pages that there was a page build failure but they didn’t show a nice tip to tell what the problem was like other attempts.

Here’s the commands I use now, placed here as a reminder to myself (now using bash script):
