Deploy an Elder.js site
In this guide, you will create a new Elder.js application and deploy it using Cloudflare Pages.
Setting up a new project
$ npx degit Elderjs/template elderjs-app$ cd elderjs-app
The Elder.js template includes a number of pages and examples showing how to build your static site, but by simply generating the project, it's already ready to be deployed to Cloudflare Pages.
Creating a GitHub repository
# setup the local repository$ git init$ git remote add origin https://github.com/<username>/<repo>$ git branch -M main # commit all initial files$ git add -A$ git commit -m "initial commit" # send commit to new GitHub repo$ git push -u origin main

Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it on every new pushed commit.
Additionally, you'll have access to , 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.
Congratulations! You've deployed your Elder.js site to Cloudflare Pages!
