Deploying Static Website

Last updated: 2020-07-10 11:04:34

    Operation Scenarios

    You can connect the static website component to the Tencent Cloud COS component in order to quickly deploy a static website in COS and generate a domain name for access over the public network.

    You can host your custom webpage in COS and generate a domain name for access over the public network as instructed in Directions. Based on the static website component, you can build a blog system (such as Hexo) more easily; you can also add certain extensions to it so as to support frontend frameworks (such as Vue and React).


    1. Install

    Install Serverless through npm:

    $ npm install -g serverless

    2. Create

    Create a my-website folder locally:

    $ mkdir my-website
    $ cd my-website

    Create a corresponding serverless.yml file in the folder and store the static webpage in the code directory. The directory structure is as follows:

    $ touch serverless.yml
    |- code
      |- index.html
    |- serverless.yml

    The code directory should store the corresponding HTML/CSS/JavaScript resource files or a complete React application.
    Download the sample HTML code and add the following code to the index.html file:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <title>Hello, Tencent Cloud</title>
    Hello, Tencent Cloud

    3. Configure

    Configure the serverless.yml file as follows:

    # serverless.yml
    component: website # Name of the imported component, which is required. The `tencent-website` component is used in this example
    name: websitedemo # Name of the instance created by this `website` component, which is required
    org: test # Organization information, which is optional. The default value is the `APPID` of your Tencent Cloud account
    app: websiteApp # Website application name, which is optional
    stage: dev # Information for identifying environment, which is optional. The default value is `dev`
        src: ./code
        index: index.html
        # dist: ./dist
        # hook: npm run build
        # websitePath: ./
      region: ap-guangzhou
      bucketName: my-bucket
      protocol: https

    4. Deploy

    If you have not logged in to or signed up for a Tencent Cloud account, you can directly log in or sign up:

    Deploy by running the sls deploy command, and you can add the --debug parameter to view the information during the deployment process:

    $ sls deploy
    region:  ap-guangzhou
    22s › myWebsite › done

    5. Remove

    Run the following command to remove the project:

    sls remove --debug
      DEBUG ─ Flushing template state and removing all components.
      DEBUG ─ Starting Website Removal.
      DEBUG ─ Removing Website bucket.
      DEBUG ─ Removing files from the "my-bucket-1300415943" bucket.
      DEBUG ─ Removing "my-bucket-1300415943" bucket from the "ap-guangzhou" region.
      DEBUG ─ "my-bucket-1300415943" bucket was successfully removed from the "ap-guangzhou" region.
      DEBUG ─ Finished Website Removal.
      3s › myWebsite › done

    Account configuration (optional)

    Currently, you can scan a QR code to log in to the CLI by default. If you want to configure persistent environment variables/key information, you can also create a local .env file:

    $ touch .env # Tencent Cloud configuration information

    Configure Tencent Cloud's SecretId and SecretKey information in the .env file and save it:

    # .env
    • If you don't have a Tencent Cloud account yet, please sign up first.
    • If you already have a Tencent Cloud account, you can get SecretId and SecretKey in API Key Management.
