Netlify Drop Deployment

This page documents deployments using the next major version dpl v2, which currently is in a beta release phase. Please see our blog post for details. The current default version is dpl v1. Check dpl v1 documentation here.

Be sure to read the v2 deployment overview.

Travis CI can automatically deploy files to Netlify Drop after a successful build.

For a minimal configuration, add the following to your .travis.yml:

  provider: netlify
  site: <site>
  auth: <encrypted auth>
  edge: true # opt in to dpl v2

Status #

Support for deployments to Netlify is stable.

Known options #

Use the following options to further configure the deployment.

site A site ID to deploy to — required, type: string
auth An auth token to log in with — required, secret, type: string
dir Specify a folder to deploy — type: string
functions Specify a functions folder to deploy — type: string
message A message to include in the deploy log — type: string
prod Deploy to production — type: boolean

Shared options #

cleanup Clean up build artifacts from the Git working directory before the deployment — type: boolean
run Commands to execute after the deployment finished successfully — type: string or array of strings

Environment variables #

All options can be given as environment variables if prefixed with NETLIFY_.

For example, auth can be given as NETLIFY_AUTH=<auth>.

Securing secrets #

Secret option values should be given as either encrypted strings in your build configuration (.travis.yml file) or environment variables in your repository settings.

Environment variables can be set on the settings page of your repository, or using travis env set:

travis env set NETLIFY_AUTH <auth>

In order to encrypt option values when adding them to your .travis.yml file use travis encrypt:

travis encrypt <auth>

Or use --add to directly add it to your .travis.yml file. Note that this command has to be run in your repository’s root directory:

travis encrypt --add deploy.auth <auth>

Deploying a specific directory #

To deploy a specific directory, use the dir key:

  provider: netlify
  # ⋮
  dir: "_build/"

Pull Requests #

Note that pull request builds skip the deployment step altogether.
