Can I just deploy the files in the build folder to my host?

Hi there,

I’m not new neither expert with Frontity, but just would like to know if I can just get the files from the build folder and place inside my webspace in a host and that’s it.

If not, and someone can give me the directions. i really appreciate.

Kind regards,


Yes, well, Kind of. You would have to copy them to your host directory but, also, you will need to run a nodeJS instance and have some code to run. I use something like this (assuming you add your code in a “build” directory"):

//Include your server file. Frontity generates a server.js file
var frontity = require("./build/server").default;
var http = require("http");
var server = http.createServer(frontity);

//Use 80 or some available port
server.listen("80", "", () => {
  console.log(`Server running at`);
