Deploy a Vite 3 site
Vite is a next-generation build tool for front-end developers. With the release of Vite 3, developers can make use of new command line (CLI) improvements, starter templates, and more to help build their front-end applications.
Cloudflare Pages has native support for Vite 3 projects. Refer to the blog post on improvements to the Pages build process, including sub-second build initialization, for more information on using Vite 3 and Cloudflare Pages to optimize your application’s build tooling.
In this guide, you will learn how to start a new project using Vite 3, and deploy it to Cloudflare Pages.
$ npm create [email protected]✔ Project name: … vite-on-pages✔ Select a framework: › vue✔ Select a variant: › vueScaffolding project in ~/src/vite-on-pages...Done. Now run:cd vite-on-pagesnpm installnpm run dev
You will now create a new GitHub repository, and push your code using GitHub’s
gh command line (CLI):
$ git initInitialized empty Git repository in ~/vite-vue3-on-pages/.git/$ git add .$ git commit -m "Initial commit" vite-vue3-on-pages/git/main +[main (root-commit) dad4177] Initial commit14 files changed, 1452 insertions(+)$ gh repo create✓ Created repository codewithkristian/vite-vue3-on-pages on GitHub✓ Added remote [email protected]:codewithkristian/vite-vue3-on-pages.git$ git push
To deploy your site to Pages:
- Log in to the Cloudflare dashboard and select your account.
- In Account Home, select Workers & Pages > Create application > Pages > Connect to Git.
- Select your new GitHub repository.
- In the Set up builds and deployments, set
npm run buildas the Build command, and
distas the Build output directory.
- Select Environment variables (advanced) > + Add variable > configure a
NODE_VERSIONvariable with a value of any version of Node greater than
14.18– this example uses
After completing configuration, select Save and Deploy.
You will see your first deploy pipeline in progress. Pages installs all dependencies and builds the project as specified. After you have deployed your project, it will be available at the
<YOUR_PROJECT_NAME>.pages.dev subdomain. Find your project’s subdomain in Workers & Pages > select your Pages project > Deployments.
Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it on every new pushed commit.
Additionally, you will have access to preview deployments, which repeat the build-and-deploy process for pull requests. With these, you can preview changes to your project with a real URL before deploying them to production.
By completing this guide, you have successfully deployed your Vite 3 site to Cloudflare Pages. To get started with other frameworks, refer to the list of Framework guides.
