Deploy a Gatsby site

Gatsby is an open-source React framework for creating websites and apps. In this guide, you'll create a new Gatsby application and deploy it using Cloudflare Pages. We'll be using the gatsby CLI to create a new Gatsby site.

Installing Gatsby

First, install the gatsby CLI:

$ npm install -g gatsby-cli

Creating a new project

With Gatsby installed, you can create a new project using gatsby new. The new command accepts a GitHub URL for using an existing template. For now, we'll use the gatsby-starter-lumen template, but you can find more in Gatsby's Starters section:

$ gatsby new my-gatsby-site

Creating a GitHub repository

Create a new GitHub repository by visiting Once you've created a new repository, you can push your local application to GitHub:

$ git remote add origin$ git branch -M main$ git push -u origin main

Deploying with Cloudflare Pages

You can deploy your site to Cloudflare Pages by going to the dashboard, and creating a new site. Select your new GitHub repository that you created above, and in the configuration section, provide the following information:

Configuration optionValue

Once you've configured your site, you can begin your first deploy. You should see Cloudflare Pages installing gatsby, your project dependencies, and building your site, before deploying it.

Once you've deployed your site, you'll receive a unique subdomain for your project on Every time you commit new code to your Gatsby site, Cloudflare Pages will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it. You'll 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.
