Static site

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

Step 1: Create the static site

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

Inside your index.html, paste the following html:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Hello</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <h1>Hello</h1>
    <img src="image.png" alt="image" />
  </body>
</html>

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: Create a new Deno project

  1. Navigate to https://dash.deno.com/new and click the +Empty Project button under Deploy from command line.
  2. On the next page, grab the project name, in this case careful-goat-90.

Step 3: Deploy the static site using deployctl

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

deployctl deploy --project=careful-goat-90 https://deno.land/std@0.171.0/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 4: Voila!

If you go under the Deployments tab in the careful-goat-90 project page, you will see the link to this dev deployment. If you click on the url, you should now see your html page with the “Hello” and the image.
