Deploy a React application

React is an incredibly popular framework for building reactive and powerful frontend applications, built by the open-source team at Facebook.

In this guide, you'll create a new React application and deploy it using Cloudflare Pages. We'll be using create-react-app, a batteries-included tool for generating new React applications.

Setting up a new project

Create a new project using npx, giving it the title my-react-app.

$ npx create-react-app my-react-app

Creating a GitHub repository

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

$ git remote add origin https://github.com/yourgithubusername/githubrepo$ 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
Production branchmain
Build commandnpm run build
Build directorybuild

Once you've configured your site, you can begin your first deploy. You should see Cloudflare Pages installing create-react-app, 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 pages.dev. Every time you commit new code to your React application, 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.
