Deploying a Vuejs Web App with Netlify


0 min read

You're just done with building that awesome Vuejs App and wondering how you can deploy it? I'll show you how to do it with Netlify. Netlify is a cloud computing company that offers hosting and serverless backend services for static websites. It offers continuous integration and a whole lot of awesome features and hosts your site directly from your git repository.

I believe your project should be on GitHub or the likes already so let's create a Netlify account. You can sign up with your GitHub or Gitlab accounts. 1.png


After Signing up it would bring you to your dashboard, mine is showing some sites I have on netlify already. Click the New site from git button to add a new site. 3.png

You will be given options to add from GitHub, GitLab or BitBucket, choose wherever your repository is. I'm going to choose GitHub. 4.png

Since it's your first time, you have to configure Netlify on GitHub, so click the button to do so and confirm your password. 2019-08-23 (4).png

This should bring you back to netlify with some options to fill. In the branch to deploy field, type in your deploy branch which should most likely be master.
