RawGit serves raw files directly from GitHub with proper Content-Type headers.

Use this URL for dev/testing

  • For sharing low-traffic, temporary examples or demos with small numbers of people.

  • Excessive traffic may lead to throttling and blacklisting.

  • New changes you push to GitHub will be reflected within minutes.

  • If excessive traffic continues after throttling and blacklisting, RawGit may display an error message to users on your site to try to get your attention.

Use this URL in production

  • For use on production websites with any amount of traffic. Files are served via MaxCDN's super fast global CDN.

  • No traffic limits or throttling.

  • It's best to use a specific tag or commit hash in the URL (not a branch). Files are cached permanently after the first request.

  • The catch: this is a free service, so there are no uptime or support guarantees.
