Build configuration

Build commands and directories

You should provide a build command to tell Cloudflare Pages how to build your application. For projects not listed here, consider reading the tool's documentation or framework, and submit a pull request to add it here!

Build directories indicates where your project's build command outputs the built version of your Cloudflare Pages site. Often, this defaults to the industry-standard public, but you may find that you need to customize it.

Below are some standard build commands and directories for popular frameworks and tools.

Environment variables

If your project makes use of environment variables to build your site, you can provide custom environment variables via the Pages UI.

Language support and tools

Cloudflare Pages' build environment has broad support for a variety of languages, such as Ruby, Node.js, Python, PHP, and Go (and many more).

If you need to use a specific version of a language, e.g. Node.js or Ruby, you can specify it by providing an associated environment variable in your build configuration, or setting the relevant file in your source code.

Here are the pinned versions for tools included in the Cloudflare Workers build environment, and how to override them as relevant:

FrameworkDefault versionEnvironment variableFile
Node.js10NODE_VERSION.nvmrc, .node-version
Python2.7PYTHON_VERSIONruntime.txt, Pipfile

Many common tools have been pre-installed as well. The environment variable available for overriding the pinned version is specified, as available:

HugoVersion 0.54HUGO_VERSION

YarnVersion 1.13.0YARN_VERSION
Zola(requires environment variable)ZOLA_VERSION

If you're looking to set a specific version of a framework your Cloudflare Pages project is using, note that Pages will respect your package manager of choice during your build process. For instance, if you use Gatsby.js, your package.json should indicate a version of the gatsby NPM package, which will be installed using npm install as your project builds on Cloudflare Pages.
