版本:3.1.1

部署

要为生产环境构建网站的静态文件,请运行:

npm run build

Once it finishes, the static files will be generated within the build directory.

备注

The only responsibility of Docusaurus is to build your site and emit static files in build.

现在,该由你来决定怎么托管这些静态文件了。

You can deploy your site to static site hosting services such as Vercel, GitHub Pages, Netlify, Render, and Surge.

Docusaurus 网站是静态渲染的,而且一般不需要 JavaScript 也能运行!

Configuration

The following parameters are required in docusaurus.config.js to optimize routing and serve files from the correct location:

参数描述
url站点 URL。 For a site deployed at https://my-org.com/my-project/, url is https://my-org.com/.
baseUrl站点的 base URL,带有末尾斜杠。 For a site deployed at https://my-org.com/my-project/, baseUrl is /my-project/.

Testing your Build Locally

在部署到生产环境前,事先进行本地测试尤为重要。 Docusaurus provides a docusaurus serve command for that:

npm run serve

By default, this will load your site at http://localhost:3000/.

Trailing slash configuration

Docusaurus has a trailingSlash config to allow customizing URLs/links and emitted filename patterns.

你一般不需要修改默认值。 Unfortunately, each static hosting provider has a different behavior, and deploying the exact same site to various hosts can lead to distinct results. 根据你的托管商的不同,你可能需要修改此配置。

提示

Use slorber/trailing-slash-guide to understand better the behavior of your host and configure trailingSlash appropriately.

Using environment variables

把可能敏感的信息放在环境变量中的做法很常见。 However, in a typical Docusaurus website, the docusaurus.config.js file is the only interface to the Node.js environment (see our architecture overview), while everything else (MDX pages, React components, etc.) are client side and do not have direct access to the process global variable. In this case, you can consider using customFields to pass environment variables to the client side.

docusaurus.config.js
// 如果你正在使用 dotenv (https://www.npmjs.com/package/dotenv)
import 'dotenv/config';

export default {
title: '...',
url: process.env.URL, // 你也可以通过环境变量来控制站点细节
customFields: {
// 把你的自定义环境放在这里
teamEmail: process.env.EMAIL,
},
};
home.jsx
import useDocusaurusContext from '@docusaurus/useDocusaurusContext';

export default function Home() {
const {
siteConfig: {customFields},
} = useDocusaurusContext();
return <div>Contact us through {customFields.teamEmail}!</div>;
}

Choosing a hosting provider

有几种常见的托管选择:

  • Self hosting with an HTTP server like Apache2 or Nginx.
  • Jamstack providers (e.g. Netlify and Vercel). 我们会以它们为参考,但同样的道理也可以适用于其他提供商。
  • GitHub Pages (by definition, it is also Jamstack, but we compare it separately).

如果你不清楚选择哪一个,问自己下面几个问题:

How many resources (money, person-hours, etc.) am I willing to invest in this?

  • 🔴 自行托管要求网络以及 Linux 和 web 服务器管理方面的经验。 这是最困难的选项,需要最多的时间来成功管理。 就费用而言,云服务几乎永远不会是免费的,而购买/部署本地服务器的费用甚至可能更高。
  • 🟢 Jamstack 提供商可以帮助你建立一个运转良好的网站,几乎不需要时间,并且很容易配置功能,比如服务端重定向。 许多提供商提供了非常慷慨的构建时间配额,甚至免费套餐也够用,你基本不会超过限额。 但是,免费计划也存在一些限制,一旦达到这些限制,你就需要付费了。 要了解详情,请查看你的提供商的定价页面。
  • 🟡 GitHub Pages 部署的工作流程设置起来可能很麻烦。 (Evidence: see the length of Deploying to GitHub Pages!) 但是,这项服务(包括构建和部署)对所有公共仓库都永久免费,并且我们也有详细教程,帮助你正确运行它。
How much server-side customization do I need?
  • 🟢 自行托管时,你可以控制整个服务器的配置。 你可以配置虚拟主机,基于请求的 URL 来服务不同的内容;你可以去做复杂的服务端重定向;你可以实现鉴权…… 如果你需要很多服务器端功能,请选择自行托管网站。
  • 🟡 Jamstack 通常提供一些服务端配置(像是 URL 格式(尾部斜杠)、服务端重定向等)。
  • 🔴 GitHub Pages 不暴露任何服务端配置,除了强制使用 HTTPS 和设置 CNAME 记录。
Do I need collaboration-friendly deployment workflows?
  • 🟡 自行托管服务可以利用持续部署功能,如 Netlify,但需要投入更大的精力。 通常,你将指定专人管理部署,而且相对于其他两个选项,它的工作流也不会非常基于 Git 。
  • 🟢 Netlify 和 Vercel 对每个 Pull Request 都会生成部署预览,这对于在合并到生产环境之前的团队审核工作非常有用。 你也可以做团队管理,不同成员拥有不同的部署访问权限。
  • 🟡 GitHub 页面不能做部署预览,至少方法非常复杂。 每个仓库只能和一个站点部署相关联。 另一方面,你还是可以控制哪些人有站点部署的写权限。

不存在通用方案。 你需要权衡你的需求和资源,然后再做决定。

Self-Hosting

Docusaurus can be self-hosted using docusaurus serve. Change port using --port and --host to change host.

npm run serve -- --build --port 80 --host 0.0.0.0
警告

相较于其他静态托管提供商 / CDN,这不是最佳解决方案。

警告

在后面几节中,我们会介绍几个常用的托管提供商,以及如何做最有效的 Docusaurus 部署设置。 Docusaurus 不附属于这些服务里的任意哪家,提供这些信息只是出于便利性。 有些文章是由第三方提供的,最近的 API 更改可能不会在我们这里反映出来。 如果你发现了过时的内容,欢迎来提 PR。

由于我们只能在尽力而为的基础上提供此部分的内容,所以我们已经停止接受关于添加新托管选项的 PR。 不过你可以在其他网站上写一篇关于某个服务提供商的文章(比如你的博客,或者提供商官网),然后让我们添加一个这篇文章的链接。

Deploying to Netlify

To deploy your Docusaurus sites to Netlify, first make sure the following options are properly configured:

docusaurus.config.js
export default {
url: 'https://docusaurus-2.netlify.app', // Url to your site with no trailing slash
baseUrl: '/', // Base directory of your site relative to your repo
// ...
};

Then, create your site with Netlify.

在设立站点时,指定如下构建指令和目录:

  • build command: npm run build
  • publish directory: build

If you did not configure these build options, you may still go to "Site settings" -> "Build & deploy" after your site is created.

Once properly configured with the above options, your site should deploy and automatically redeploy upon merging to your deploy branch, which defaults to main.

警告

Some Docusaurus sites put the docs folder outside of website (most likely former Docusaurus v1 sites):

repo           # git 根目录
├── docs # MD 文件
└── website # Docusaurus 根目录

If you decide to use the website folder as Netlify's base directory, Netlify will not trigger builds when you update the docs folder, and you need to configure a custom ignore command:

website/netlify.toml
[build]
ignore = "git diff --quiet $CACHED_COMMIT_REF $COMMIT_REF . ../docs/"
警告

默认情况下,Netlify 会为 Docusaurus URL 添加末尾斜杠。

It is recommended to disable the Netlify setting Post Processing > Asset Optimization > Pretty Urls to prevent lowercase URLs, unnecessary redirects, and 404 errors.

Be very careful: the Disable asset optimization global checkbox is broken and does not really disable the Pretty URLs setting in practice. Please make sure to uncheck it independently.

If you want to keep the Pretty Urls Netlify setting on, adjust the trailingSlash Docusaurus config appropriately.

Refer to slorber/trailing-slash-guide for more information.

Deploying to Vercel

Deploying your Docusaurus project to Vercel will provide you with various benefits in the areas of performance and ease of use.

To deploy your Docusaurus project with a Vercel for Git Integration, make sure it has been pushed to a Git repository.

Import the project into Vercel using the Import Flow. During the import, you will find all relevant options preconfigured for you; however, you can choose to change any of these options.

After your project has been imported, all subsequent pushes to branches will generate Preview Deployments, and all changes made to the Production Branch (usually "main" or "master") will result in a Production Deployment.

Deploying to GitHub Pages

Docusaurus provides an easy way to publish to GitHub Pages, which comes free with every GitHub repository.

Overview

通常,发布过程会涉及到两个仓库(至少是两个分支):包含源文件的分支,以及包含将使用 Github Pages 提供(给用户)的构建输出的分支。 In the following tutorial, they will be referred to as "source" and "deployment", respectively.

每个 GitHub 仓库都关联有一个 GitHub Pages 服务。 If the deployment repository is called my-org/my-project (where my-org is the organization name or username), the deployed site will appear at https://my-org.github.io/my-project/. If the deployment repository is called my-org/my-org.github.io (the organization GitHub Pages repo), the site will appear at https://my-org.github.io/.

信息

In case you want to use your custom domain for GitHub Pages, create a CNAME file in the static directory. Anything within the static directory will be copied to the root of the build directory for deployment. When using a custom domain, you should be able to move back from baseUrl: '/projectName/' to baseUrl: '/', and also set your url to your custom domain.

You may refer to GitHub Pages' documentation User, Organization, and Project Pages for more details.

GitHub Pages picks up deploy-ready files (the output from docusaurus build) from the default branch (master / main, usually) or the gh-pages branch, and either from the root or the /docs folder. You can configure that through Settings > Pages in your repository. 这个分支会被称作「部署分支」。

We provide a docusaurus deploy command that helps you deploy your site from the source branch to the deployment branch in one command: clone, build, and commit.

docusaurus.config.js settings

First, modify your docusaurus.config.js and add the following params:

参数描述
organizationName拥有部署仓库的 GitHub 用户或组织。
projectName部署仓库的名字。
deploymentBranch部署分支的名称。 It defaults to 'gh-pages' for non-organization GitHub Pages repos (projectName not ending in .github.io). 否则,它需要通过配置字段或环境变量显式定义。

These fields also have their environment variable counterparts which have a higher priority: ORGANIZATION_NAME, PROJECT_NAME, and DEPLOYMENT_BRANCH.

警告

GitHub Pages 默认为 Docusaurus 网址链接添加末尾斜杠。 It is recommended to set a trailingSlash config (true or false, not undefined).

示例:

docusaurus.config.js
export default {
// ...
url: 'https://endiliey.github.io', // Your website URL
baseUrl: '/',
projectName: 'endiliey.github.io',
organizationName: 'endiliey',
trailingSlash: false,
// ...
};
警告

By default, GitHub Pages runs published files through Jekyll. Since Jekyll will discard any files that begin with _, it is recommended that you disable Jekyll by adding an empty file named .nojekyll file to your static directory.

Environment settings

参数描述
USE_SSHSet to true to use SSH instead of the default HTTPS for the connection to the GitHub repo. If the source repo URL is an SSH URL (e.g. [email protected]:facebook/docusaurus.git), USE_SSH is inferred to be true.
GIT_USERThe username for a GitHub account that has push access to the deployment repo. 对于你自己的仓库,这一般会是你自己的 GitHub 用户名。 不使用 SSH 时必填,使用 SSH 时则会被忽略。
GIT_PASSPersonal access token of the git user (specified by GIT_USER), to facilitate non-interactive deployment (e.g. continuous deployment)
CURRENT_BRANCH源分支。 Usually, the branch will be main or master, but it could be any branch except for gh-pages. If nothing is set for this variable, then the current branch from which docusaurus deploy is invoked will be used.
GIT_USER_NAMEThe git config user.name value to use when pushing to the deployment repo
GIT_USER_EMAILThe git config user.email value to use when pushing to the deployment repo

GitHub 企业安装版应该和 github.com 的工作方式一致。你只需要在环境变量中设置组织的 GitHub 企业主机即可。

参数描述
GITHUB_HOST你的 GitHub 企业网站的域名。
GITHUB_PORT你的 GitHub 企业网站的端口。

Deploy

最后,要把你的网站部署到 GitHub Pages 上,请运行:

GIT_USER=<GITHUB_USERNAME> yarn deploy
警告

Beginning in August 2021, GitHub requires every command-line sign-in to use the personal access token instead of the password. 当 GitHub 提示你输入密码时,请输入个人访问令牌。 See the GitHub documentation for more information.

Alternatively, you can use SSH (USE_SSH=true) to log in.

Triggering deployment with GitHub Actions

GitHub Actions allow you to automate, customize, and execute your software development workflows right in your repository.

The workflow examples below assume your website source resides in the main branch of your repository (the source branch is main), and your publishing source is configured for the gh-pages branch (the deployment branch is gh-pages).

我们的目标是:

  1. When a new pull request is made to main, there's an action that ensures the site builds successfully, without actually deploying. This job will be called test-deploy.
  2. When a pull request is merged to the main branch or someone pushes to the main branch directly, it will be built and deployed to the gh-pages branch. 在这之后,新的构建输出会被发布在 GitHub Pages 网站上。 This job will be called deploy.

下面是两种通过 GitHub Actions 部署文档的方法。 Based on the location of your deployment branch (gh-pages), choose the relevant tab below:

  • Source repo and deployment repo are the same repository.
  • The deployment repo is a remote repository, different from the source.

While you can have both jobs defined in the same workflow file, the original deploy workflow will always be listed as skipped in the PR check suite status, which is not indicative of the actual status and provides no value to the review process. 所以,我们建议把它们作为单独的工作流来管理。

We will use a popular third-party deployment action: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages.

GitHub action files

添加这两个工作流文件:

Tweak the parameters for your setup

这些文件假设你使用的是 Yarn。 If you use npm, change cache: yarn, yarn install --frozen-lockfile, yarn build to cache: npm, npm ci, npm run build accordingly.

If your Docusaurus project is not at the root of your repo, you may need to configure a default working directory, and adjust the paths accordingly.

Site not deployed properly?

在推送到 main 分支后,如果你没有看到你的站点被发布到想要的位置(比方说,访问后发现“这里没有 Github Pages 站点”,或是显示你仓库里的 README.md 文件),尝试以下步骤:

  • 等3分钟,然后刷新一下。 GitHub 页面可能需要几分钟时间才能接收到新文件。
  • 检查你仓库的入口页上次提交的标题旁是否有个绿色的小对勾。如果有,那就表明 CI 通过了。 如果你看到的是一个叉,那就说明构建或者部署失败了,你应该检查日志以获取更多调试信息。
  • 点击对勾,确保你看到的是“部署到 Github Pages”工作流。 如果你看到的名称是类似“pages build and deployment / deploy”(即“页面构建和部署”)这样的,这就表明你的自定义部署工作流根本无法触发。 Make sure the YAML files are placed under the .github/workflows folder, and that the trigger condition is set correctly (e.g., if your default branch is "master" instead of "main", you need to change the on.push property).
  • Under your repo's Settings > Pages, make sure the "Source" (which is the source for the deployment files, not "source" as in our terminology) is set to "gh-pages" + "/ (root)", since we are using gh-pages as the deployment branch.

如果你正在使用自定义域名:

Triggering deployment with Travis CI

持续集成(CI)服务通常用于每当新提交检入源代码控制(注:又称版本控制)时执行例程任务。 这些任务可以是运行单元测试、集成测试、自动化构建、发布包到 npm 和向你的网站部署变更的任意组合。 All you need to do to automate the deployment of your website is to invoke the yarn deploy script whenever your website is updated. The following section covers how to do just that using Travis CI, a popular continuous integration service provider.

  1. Go to https://github.com/settings/tokens and generate a new personal access token. When creating the token, grant it the repo scope so that it has the permissions it needs.
  2. Using your GitHub account, add the Travis CI app to the repository you want to activate.
  3. 打开你的 Travis CI 主界面。 The URL looks like https://travis-ci.com/USERNAME/REPO, and navigate to the More options > Setting > Environment Variables section of your repository.
  4. Create a new environment variable named GH_TOKEN with your newly generated token as its value, then GH_EMAIL (your email address) and GH_NAME (your GitHub username).
  5. Create a .travis.yml on the root of your repository with the following:
.travis.yml
language: node_js
node_js:
- 18
branches:
only:
- main
cache:
yarn: true
script:
- git config --global user.name "${GH_NAME}"
- git config --global user.email "${GH_EMAIL}"
- echo "machine github.com login ${GH_NAME} password ${GH_TOKEN}" > ~/.netrc
- yarn install
- GIT_USER="${GH_NAME}" yarn deploy

Now, whenever a new commit lands in main, Travis CI will run your suite of tests and if everything passes, your website will be deployed via the yarn deploy script.

Triggering deployment with Buddy

Buddy is an easy-to-use CI/CD tool that allows you to automate the deployment of your portal to different environments, including GitHub Pages.

按照以下步骤创建一个管道。每当你推送变更到项目中的选定分支时,它都会自动部署一份新版本的网站。

  1. Go to https://github.com/settings/tokens and generate a new personal access token. When creating the token, grant it the repo scope so that it has the permissions it needs.
  2. 登录 Buddy 帐户并创建一个新项目。
  3. 选择 GitHub 作为 git 托管提供商,并选择包含你的网站源码的仓库。
  4. Using the left navigation panel, switch to the Pipelines view.
  5. 创建一个新的管道。 Define its name, set the trigger mode to On push, and select the branch that triggers the pipeline execution.
  6. Add a Node.js action.
  7. 在 action 的终端中添加以下指令:
GIT_USER=<GH_PERSONAL_ACCESS_TOKEN>
git config --global user.email "<YOUR_GH_EMAIL>"
git config --global user.name "<YOUR_GH_USERNAME>"
yarn deploy

After creating this simple pipeline, each new commit pushed to the branch you selected deploys your website to GitHub Pages using yarn deploy. Read this guide to learn more about setting up a CI/CD pipeline for Docusaurus.

Using Azure Pipelines

  1. Sign Up at Azure Pipelines if you haven't already.
  2. 创建一个组织。 在组织内创建一个项目,连接到你的 GitHub 仓库。
  3. Go to https://github.com/settings/tokens and generate a new personal access token with the repo scope.
  4. In the project page (which looks like https://dev.azure.com/ORG_NAME/REPO_NAME/_build), create a new pipeline with the following text. Also, click on edit and add a new environment variable named GH_TOKEN with your newly generated token as its value, then GH_EMAIL (your email address) and GH_NAME (your GitHub username). 确保把它们标记为私密。 Alternatively, you can also add a file named azure-pipelines.yml at your repository root.
azure-pipelines.yml
trigger:
- main

pool:
vmImage: ubuntu-latest

steps:
- checkout: self
persistCredentials: true

- task: NodeTool@0
inputs:
versionSpec: '18'
displayName: Install Node.js

- script: |
git config --global user.name "${GH_NAME}"
git config --global user.email "${GH_EMAIL}"
git checkout -b main
echo "machine github.com login ${GH_NAME} password ${GH_TOKEN}" > ~/.netrc
yarn install
GIT_USER="${GH_NAME}" yarn deploy
env:
GH_NAME: $(GH_NAME)
GH_EMAIL: $(GH_EMAIL)
GH_TOKEN: $(GH_TOKEN)
displayName: Install and build

Using Drone

  1. Create a new SSH key that will be the deploy key for your project.
  2. Name your private and public keys to be specific and so that it does not overwrite your other SSH keys.
  3. Go to https://github.com/USERNAME/REPO/settings/keys and add a new deploy key by pasting in the public key you just generated.
  4. 打开你的 Drone.io 界面并登录。 The URL looks like https://cloud.drone.io/USERNAME/REPO.
  5. Click on the repository, click on activate repository, and add a secret called git_deploy_private_key with your private key value that you just generated.
  6. Create a .drone.yml on the root of your repository with the below text.
.drone.yml
kind: pipeline
type: docker
trigger:
event:
- tag
- name: Website
image: node
commands:
- mkdir -p $HOME/.ssh
- ssh-keyscan -t rsa github.com >> $HOME/.ssh/known_hosts
- echo "$GITHUB_PRIVATE_KEY" > "$HOME/.ssh/id_rsa"
- chmod 0600 $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa
- cd website
- yarn install
- yarn deploy
environment:
USE_SSH: true
GITHUB_PRIVATE_KEY:
from_secret: git_deploy_private_key

现在,每当你推送新标签到 Github,此文件中的触发(trigger)都将启动 Drone CI 的 job,以发布你的网站。
