At the bottom of my page, I've added a piece of CDF js code, but it doesn't evoke the Wolfram CDF Player or Mathematica, so I can't play with it.

And I wonder whether it's possible, since I know GitHub pages are some static pages.

Today I found the cdf in my homepage could be aroused by CDF palyer. ???

    $\begingroup$ In addition to the embedding code, one usually needs to ensure the webserver sends the right MIME type. And afaik, github does not allow this, see $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It's always so funny for a european like me to look on an asian website. I feel like I'm in the middle of a color-storm. I can only guess how boring web-pages like stackexchange must be for you with their very clear and simple design. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @caya I've installed CDF player, it seems I can use CDF in my github page now? $\endgroup$ Mar 15, 2014 at 16:02
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it's possible, see here is one example chenminqi.github.io/%E9%BB%91%E7%99%BD%E6%A3%8B $\endgroup$ Sep 16, 2015 at 14:15

The answer appears no because github doesn't support the proper mimetype for cdf of documents.

Here is the actually list but although cdf is listed I don't believe it is referring to Mathematica's cdf.

Mimetypes are explained here.
