Deploy to Netlify

Netlify is an excellent solution for deploying and hosting Gridsome 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 more.

Their free tier includes unlimited personal and commercial projects, HTTPS, continuous deployment from public or private repos and more. Here are a few ways to deploy your Gridsome applications to Netlify:

From your Git repository

To deploy your Gridsome site to Netlify, go to your Netlify app and click New site from Git. Select your project repo from either GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket.

Add these build settings:

  • Build Command:gridsome build
  • Publish directory:dist

And click Deploy Site to deploy your application.

Alternatively, you can specify your deploy settings from a netlify.toml file. Create a file in the root of your project called netlify.toml, with the following configuation.

  publish = "dist"
  command = "gridsome build"

These commands will tell Netlify to prefill your build settings with the provided configuration when deploying your Gridsome application. More infomation on netlify.toml files can be found in the Netlify docs.

From the terminal

Netlify also allows you to deploy Gridsome applications directly from the terminal.

Install the Netlify CLI.

npm install netlify-cli -g

Log in to your Netlify account via the CLI.

netlify login

In your project's folder run the deploy command.

netlify deploy

The default command netlify deploy will deploy a draft of the site. To deploy a live version, specify the prod flag.

netlify deploy --prod


You do not need to setup any redirect rules for a Gridsome site to work with Netlify. Gridsome generates HTML files for every path on your site so rewrite rules aren't necessary (except for dynamic pages).
