Deploy a Solid Site

Solid is an open-source web application framework focused on generating performant applications with a modern developer experience based on JSX.

In this guide, you will create a new Solid application implemented via SolidStart (Solid’s meta-framework) and deploy it using Cloudflare Pages.

​​ Create a new project

Use the create-cloudflare CLI (C3) to set up a new project. C3 will create a new project directory, initiate Solid’s official setup tool, and provide the option to deploy instantly.

To use create-cloudflare to create a new Solid project, run the following command:

$ npm create cloudflare@latest my-solid-app -- --framework=solid

You will be prompted to select a starter. Choose any of the available options. You will then be asked if you want to enable Server Side Rendering. Reply yes. Finally, you will be asked if you want to use TypeScript, choose either yes or no.

create-cloudflare will then install dependencies, including the Wrangler CLI and the SolidStart Cloudflare Pages adapter, and ask you setup questions.

After you have installed your project dependencies, start your application:

$ npm run dev

​​ SolidStart Cloudflare configuration

In order to use SolidStart with Cloudflare Pages, add the SolidStart Cloudflare Pages adapter to your application:

$ npm install --save-dev solid-start-cloudflare-pages

Next, use the adapter in your the vite.config.(ts/js) file:

import solid from "solid-start/vite";
import { defineConfig } from "vite";
+ import cloudflare from "solid-start-cloudflare-pages";
export default defineConfig({
- plugins: [solid()],
+ plugins: [solid({ adapter: cloudflare({}) })],

​​ Before you continue

All of the framework guides assume you already have a fundamental understanding of Git. If you are new to Git, refer to this summarized Git handbook on how to set up Git on your local machine.

If you clone with SSH, you must generate SSH keys on each computer you use to push or pull from GitHub.

Refer to the GitHub documentation and Git documentation for more information.

​​ Create a GitHub repository

Create a new GitHub repository by visiting After creating a new repository, prepare and push your local application to GitHub by running the following commands in your terminal:

$ git init
$ git remote add origin<your-gh-username>/<repository-name>
$ git add .
$ git commit -m "Initial commit"
$ git branch -M main
$ git push -u origin main

​​ Deploy with Cloudflare Pages

​​ Deploy via the create-cloudflare CLI (C3)

If you use create-cloudflare(C3) to create your new Solid project, C3 will install all dependencies needed for your project and prompt you to deploy your project via the CLI. If you deploy, your site will be live and you will be provided with a deployment URL.

​​ Deploy via the Cloudflare dashboard

  1. Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
  2. In Account Home, select Workers & Pages > Create application > Pages > Connect to Git.
  3. Select the new GitHub repository that you created and, in Set up builds and deployments, provide the following information:
Configuration optionValue
Production branchmain
Build commandnpm run build
Build directorydist/public
Environment VariablesNODE_VERSION: 17

After configuring your site, you can begin your first deploy. You should see Cloudflare Pages installing npm, your project dependencies, and building your site before deploying it.

After deploying your site, you will receive a unique subdomain for your project on * Every time you commit new code to your Solid repository, Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it. You will also get access to preview deployments on new pull requests, to preview how changes look to your site before deploying them to production.

​​ Use bindings in your Solid application

A binding allows your application to interact with Cloudflare developer products, such as KV, Durable Object, R2, and D1.

To add a binding in your SolidStart, add the binding to the Cloudflare adapter. This allows you to access your bindings during development, and test your application before deploying it.

The following example configuration supposes you are using a KV namespace binding named "MY_KV". You will need to update the adapter’s use in your vite.config.(ts/js) file in the following way:

import solid from "solid-start/vite";
import { defineConfig } from "vite";
import cloudflare from "solid-start-cloudflare-pages";
export default defineConfig({
- plugins: [solid({ adapter: cloudflare({}) })],
+ plugins: [
+ solid({
+ adapter: cloudflare({
+ kvNamespaces: ["MY_KV"],
+ }),
+ }),
+ ],

You can then access the binding in the environment variable provided to you by SolidStart. For example, in a createServerData$ loader:

export function routeData() {
return createServerData$(async (_, { env }) => {
const { MY_KV } = (env as { MY_KV: KVNamespace }));
// ...

After setting up the binding locally, you only need to set the binding in the Cloudflare dashboard as well and it will be available for your Solid application on your next deployment. To add the binding there, refer to Bindings.
