You can automatically backup your published posts as markdown files to a public or private repository on GitHub. Backups are also updated automatically upon any edit or delete change.


Here is how to set up automatic GitHub backups on your blog:

  1. Create a new repository on GitHub to store your articles, probably named hashnode-backups or articles.

  2. Log in to your Hashnode account.

  3. Click on your profile picture at the bottom-left corner of the page on desktop screen or top-right corner on mobile screen.
