How to post files to site but *not* to github repo?

If I’m deploying the site from a github repo, is there a way to deploy files in the public folder but not in the repo?

I’d like to host some PDFs on my site that are a too big/annoying to push to Github. Is there a way to avoid this?


Most people use git-lfs to handle large files, or store them in a file storage service like S3. Have you looked in to that? Also, how big are these PDF’s that you want to store?
