Deploy a Remix site

Remix is a framework that is focused on fully utilizing the power of the web. Like Cloudflare Workers, it uses modern JavaScript APIs, and it places emphasis on web fundamentals such as meaningful HTTP status codes, caching and optimizing for both usability and performance.

In this guide, you will create a new Remix application and deploy to Cloudflare Pages.

Setting up a new project

Start by installing the latest version of Remix. Create a new project directory and then intialize a Remix project by running:

$ npx create-remix@latest

After running the above command, you will be prompted to name your project in your terminal and select your deploy method. This guide uses Cloudflare Pages.

By selecting Cloudflare Pages as your deployment option in the terminal drop-down menu, your folder will have a functions/[[path]].ts file. The [[path]] filename indicates that this file will handle requests to all incoming URLs; refer to Path segments to learn more.

After selecting your deployment option, change the directory to your project and render your project by running the following command:

# choose Cloudflare Pages
cd [whatever you named the project]
$ npm run dev

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.

Creating a GitHub repository

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

$ git remote add origin https://github.com/yourgithubusername/githubrepo
$ git branch -M main
$ git push -u origin main

Deploying with Cloudflare Pages

Deploy your site to Pages by logging into the Cloudflare dashboard > Account Home > Pages and selecting Create a project. Select the new GitHub repository that you created and, in the Set up builds and deployments section, provide the following information:

Configuration optionValue
Production branchmain
Framework presetRemix
Build commandnpm run build
Build directorypublic

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 *.pages.dev. Every time you commit new code to your Remix site, Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it. You will also get access to preview deployments on new pull requests, so you can preview how changes look to your site before deploying them to production.
