Deploying Docbox to Github pages

I love Docbox; it’s the documentation framework I always wanted. You write Markdown and compile into a nice single page document. While Docbox comes with most batteries included to create API documentation, you have to take care of deployment yourself. Thanks to the simple setup of Docbox, you can automate its deployment in a simple bash script.
