Request for new features

Hello team,
I’ve reaching the final stage of my webpage course. I find that the performance of github pages is very troublesome. Could someone put some table to put an estimated time it loads based on the KB or MB? It’s obvious to IT literate people like me that the number of htm / html pages would still depend on their sizes. I have to keep clearing the cache and checking my github page. I’m not happy with this.
Note: I had to delete my repository 2x and I’m still waiting.

See my screen shot - it’s past 20 mins and no repository. So what’s happening now?

I’m able to see my webpage now but the feature I requested should seriously be added.

Hi @JulianHSC, when you’re talking about performance are you meaning the loading of your web page when visiting it in a browser or the building and deployment or your web page? From your message I believe it’s the latter, but I’m not sure!

As for the issue itself, GitHub Pages sites can take up to 10 minutes to build fully, and then another 10 to deploy across our CDNs, meaning your site could be in the build process for up to 20 minutes. It’s likely it will finish much faster than that, but it can take up to that time to fully finish deploying and your site is available.

Furthermore, if you visit your site’s URL before this process is finished and get a 404 page this page will actually be cached for another 5 or so minutes, meaning you may not be able to see your site even if it is actually deployed and available. You should be able to skip this cache by adding a URL parameter such as ?test to the end of your URL, or by visiting a different page on your site. Your browser may also be caching this locally so you may also need to empty your local cache too.
