Deploying PXT with static files

Running pxt staticpkg will create a number of files under built/packaged. You can use pxt serve -pkg or any other any web server. For example, you can use http-server for easy testing.

npm install -g http-server
http-server -c-1 built/packaged

You can also run pxt staticpkg --route foo, which will create files under built/packaged/foo that assume they sit under /foo/ on the web server. If you do not specify anything, the files assume they sit right under /. To test it, run pxt serve -pkg and head to http://localhost:3232/foo/index.html.

GitHub Pages support

GitHub provides you with free hosting for your project files.

If you wish to publish your web site to GitHub pages, simply add --githubpages to the command.

This will:

  • create a fresh checkout in built/gh-pages if needed
  • implicitly run pxt staticpkg --route repo-name
  • copy files from built/packaged/repo-name to built/gh-pages
  • add files to git, commit, and push

You can then head to

You can’t perform that action at this time.
