Deploy a React app with Vite

This tutorial covers how to deploy a Vite Deno and React app on Deno Deploy.

Step 1: Create a Vite app Jump to heading

Let's use Vite to quickly scaffold a Deno and React app:

deno run --allow-read --allow-write --allow-env npm:create-vite-extra@latest

We'll name our project vite-project. Be sure to select deno-react in the project configuration.

Then, cd into the newly created project folder.

Step 2: Run the repo locally Jump to heading

To see and edit your new project locally you can run:

deno task run

Step 3: Deploy your project with Deno Deploy Jump to heading

Now that we have everything in place, let's deploy your new project!

  1. In your browser, visit Deno Deploy and link your GitHub account.
  2. Select the repository which contains your new Vite project.
  3. You can give your project a name or allow Deno to generate one for you.
  4. Select Vite from the Framework Preset dropdown. This will populate the Entrypoint form field.
  5. Leave the Install step empty.
  6. Set the Build step to deno task build.
  7. Set the Root directory to dist
  8. Click Deploy Project

NB. The entrypoint that is set will be https://deno.land/std@0.224.0/http/file_server.ts. Note that this is not a file that exists in the Vite repo itself. Instead, it is an external program. When run, this program uploads all the static asset files in your current repo (vite-project/dist) to Deno Deploy. Then when you navigate to the deployment URL, it serves up the local directory.

deployctl Jump to heading

Alternatively, you can use deployctl directly to deploy vite-project to Deno Deploy.

cd /dist
deployctl deploy --project=<project-name> https://deno.land/std@0.224.0/http/file_server.ts
