⚑ How to deploy to Fleek (IPFS)

1. Create a fleek.json config file:

You can configure this site deployment using Fleek CLI and running:

 > fleek sites init
   WARN! Fleek CLI is in beta phase, use it under your own responsibility
   ? Choose one of the existing sites or create a new one. β€Ί 
   ❯ Create a new site

It will prompt you for a namedist directory location & build command

  • name: How you want to name the site
  • dist: The output directory where the site is located, for this template it's public
  • build command: Command to build your site, this will be used to deploy the latest version either by CLI or Github Actions

2. Deploy the site

After configuring your fleek.json file, you can deploy the site by running

fleek sites deploy

After running it you will get an output like this:

 WARN! Fleek CLI is in beta, use it at your own discretion
 > Success! Deployed!
 > Site IPFS CID: Qmbv2NT91iPkXaoim5CSwdR8MLEoquRPcsdZncZ5QaxAqn

 > You can visit through the gateway:

Extra features

Keep in mind:

This template has been configured to produce a static output. This means you can deploy it directly to IPFS without needing a server. Make sure to generate your static site before deploying using hugo.

For absolute URLs to work correctly on IPFS, you need to configure the URLs to be the relative. This can be done in the config.toml file:

relativeURLs = true
