Deploying to Netlify
In this guide, we’ll walk through how to host & publish your next Gatsby site to Netlify.
Netlify is an excellent option for deploying Gatsby sites. Netlify is a unified platform that automates your code to create high-performant, easily maintainable sites and web apps. They provide continuous deployment (Git-triggered builds), an intelligent, global CDN, full DNS (including custom domains), automated HTTPS, asset acceleration, and a lot more.
Their free tier includes unlimited personal and commercial projects, HTTPS, continuous deployment from public or private repos and more.
NOTE: There is no need to build the site, Netlify can handle that for us.
Now, go to Netlify and signup if you haven’t already. We connect to GitHub (or GitLab/Bitbucket) and select the repository.
We can change how Netlify builds and deploys the site.
If we change nothing, Netlify will build the
master branch of the repository and will invoke the build command after we clicked deploy.
If you would have previously built the site and pushed the build to Git, Netlify would publish the directory selected (
After Netlify now finished the build, we can see the website on the given url.
Now that your site is connected to your repository, Netlify will deploy the site and publish it whenever you push to your Git repo.
