Cloudflare is a cloud solutions provider with a huge proprietary content delivery network (CDN). Like Netlify or Vercel, Cloudflare Pages makes the deployment process flexible and easy. You can add a GitHub repo to the service and build & host Zola-based websites after each PR automatically.
- Sign in or create a new Cloudflare account and choose "Pages" on the right nav column
- Press the button "Create a project"
- Select the GitHub repo that contains your Zola website and connect it to Cloudflare Pages
- Click "Begin setup"
- Enter your project name. Keep in mind that if you would like to use the default Pages domain (pages.dev), this will be your website's future URL ("yourprojectname.pages.dev"). Additionally, select a production branch.
- In Build settings, select Zola as the Framework preset. Build command and Build output directory will be filled automatically.
- Toggle Environment variables below and add
ZOLA_VERSION as a variable name. Use
0.17.2 or a different Zola version as the value.
- Finally, save and deploy.
Your website is now built and deployed to Cloudflare's network! You can add a custom domain or modify settings in the Pages dashboard.
