GitHub Pages features become an official part of the REST API

The features that are a part of the GitHub Pages mister-fantastic-preview are now available on and will be available in the next versions of GitHub Enterprise (2.19 and higher). You will no longer need to pass a preview header to use most GitHub Pages API endpoints.

Now that the preview period has ended (first announced in July 2016), you no longer need to pass the mister-fantastic-preview custom media type. Instead, we recommend that you specify v3 as the version in the Accept header:


Please note that if you use GitHub Enterprise versions 2.8 to 2.18, you will still need to provide this custom media type in the Accept header:


Onward! Thanks again to everyone that tried out these GitHub Pages API features during the preview period.
