Deploy static sites for free using Surge

Surge is a static web publishing tool for the command line. It’s the most simple and easy way to deploy a static site that I’ve ever seen!.

Surge is free and includes a lot of cool features out of the box. Just with a single command you will get your site deployed.

What do you need?

Getting started

To install Surge, just run:

$ npm i -g surge

After that, you need to register for your account.
If you’re already logged in, you can easily deploy static sites using Surge.

$ surge login

$ surge

You’ll be asked for the path or folder you want to deploy and the domain for the project.
You can also use a costum domain instead of a sub-domain

If you accidently typed a wrong domain name, you can easily change it as I did above.

Use the list command to get a to see every project you’ve published on Surge.
To delete a site on Surge just run teardown

$ surge list

$ surge teardown
