Travis CI for R packages hosted in GitHub and pkgdown

Is it Travis CI necessary to develop an R package hosted in GitHub and the development a website with pkgdown?

It is not. In fact we suggest that you do not use Travis CI, but use GitHub Actions instead: R Packages (2e) - 21  Software development practices

OTOH, GitHub Actions are not necessary, either. Many people develop R packages without a CI.

Thank you Gabor.

Can I delete the .travis_yml in my packages?

If you don't want to use Travis, then sure.
