You can optionally add a 'kyso.yaml' file to your directory with the following options:
branch: this allows you to specify only a single branch which will be posted to Kyso.
main: Specify the main file you want your visitors to see
title: Specify the title of the post
description: Specify the description of the post
tags: any tags you want added to the post
email: an email address that a Kyso team member used to sign up to Kyso and they will be attributed as the creator on Kyso. This only applies to child posts.
created_at: to set the post date just add this field as a string that can be parsed by moment.js https://momentjs.com/guides/#/parsing/ This only applies to child posts.
updated_at: same as created_at but for when the post is updated. This only applies to child posts.
So for example if you had a directory with a 'my-article.ipynb' notebook and you wanted Kyso to only accept the staging branch you would create a 'kyso.yaml' file like the following:
title: "My awesome post"description: "This is a description of what I did in my awesome post"branch: stagingmain: my-article.ipynbtags:- apples- organges
You can also set the title and description, and preview image in the post config on Kyso.
Recommendation: Always add a title, description and preview image to your posts. You will get a ton more readers.

In the absence of any kyso.yaml file in the directory, Kyso will look for a YAML header in a notebook's metadata. This may be a better option for those of you posting ongoing projects, to which commits are made on a daily or weekly basis. Rather than manually configuring a YAML file each time, you can simply update the metadata while working in the notebook.
The example below is our YAML configs contained within 3 dashed (-) lines top and bottom, in the first Markdown cell of the notebook:
---title: "My awesome post"description: "This is a description of what I did in my awesome post"branch: stagingmain: my-article.ipynbtags:- apples- organges---
