I am happy that you found a method that works for you.

As a contrasting point, I don’t see why you couldn’t do that with
ox-publish.el in addition to maybe Make.

Based on your description, I’d copy source files using
org-publish-attachment to a publish dir and compiled files to the same dir
via different projects in org-publish-project-alist.  I don’t know how
github works re CI, but with Gitlab you’d then mark the publish folder as
an artifact folder that would be published.  For each commit you’d then
have a zip and a website with source and compiled data / code.

If you have any suggestions on how to improve ox-publish to better suit
please share them.

For publishing something to the web I’d personally use CI or just cp.
You could use git using :publishing-function or maybe
:publishing-directory if tramp somehow supports git. 


Tack, ni svenska vakttorn. Med plutonium tvingar vi dansken på knä!
