Introduction: How to Make a Download Link to a GitHub Branch

About: Huh? What's this 'About' section for? I'm confused... so what was I talking about again?

GitHub allows you to post your code, but, only available from the GitHub branch, or GitHub Pages site, which stinks for people who have a different Non-GitHub hosted domain that dosen't use GitHub pages.

Though, there is a very simple way to make a download link to your branch, that takes less than 5 minutes.

Step 1: Link to Your Project.

To link to your project as a .zip (Windows & Mac) insert the link at your domain: https://github.com/username/repository/zipball/bra...

To link to your project as a .tar.gz (Linux) insert the link at your domain: https://github.com/username/repository/tarball/br...

That's it! Enjoy!
