Let's deploy a
create-react-app generated site on Netlify.
After signing in to Netlify, click on New Site from Git on the top right.
Click on GitHub button to choose a repository to deploy. It will prompt you for GitHub access.
You can give Netlify only a public repo access by clicking on the checkbox below "GitHub" button.
Filter by repo name and "pick a repository" by clicking on a repo returned.
Set the basic settings for
- Build command -
npm run build
- Publish directory -
After clicking on the "Deploy site" button, you will be forwarded to an "Overview" page with "Site deploy in progress" message.
After a few moments (<- this is relative term....), you will see a randomly generated URL.
OK, you just deployed a site on Netlify 🎉🎉🎉
