Deploy a static site

This tutorial will cover how to deploy a static site (no JavaScript) on Deno Deploy.

Step 1: Create the static site Jump to heading

mkdir static-site
cd static-site
touch index.html

Inside your index.html, paste the following html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <img src="image.png" alt="image" />

Make sure that there a image.png inside static-site.

You have now a html page that says "Hello" and has a logo.

Step 2: Deploy the static site using deployctl Jump to heading

To deploy this repo on Deno Deploy, from the static-site repository, run:

deployctl deploy --project=<your-preferred-project-name> https://deno.land/std@0.220.0/http/file_server.ts

To give a little more explanation of these commands: Because this is a static site, there is no JavaScript to execute. Instead of giving Deno Deploy a particular JavaScript or TypeScript file to run as the entrypoint file, you give it this external file_server.ts program, which simply uploads all the static files in the static-site repo, including the image and the html page, to Deno Deploy. These static assets are then served up.

Step 3: Voila! Jump to heading

Your static site should now be live! Its url will be output in the terminal, or you can manage your new static site project in your Deno dashboard. If you click through to your new project you will be able to view the site, configure its name, environment variables, custom domains and more.
