Example Usage

Disable ZEIT Now for GitHub

The ZEIT Now for GitHub integration automatically deploys your GitHub projects with ZEIT Now, providing Preview Deployment URLs, and automatic Custom Domain updates. link

We would like to to use github actions for build and deploy instead of ZEIT Now.

Set github.enabled: false in now.json

  "version": 2,
  "public": false,
  "github": {
    "enabled": false
  "builds": [
    { "src": "./public/**", "use": "@now/static" }
  "routes": [
    { "src": "/(.*)", "dest": "public/$1" }

When set to false, ZEIT Now for GitHub will not deploy the given project regardless of the GitHub app being installed.

now.json Example:

  "name": "zeit-now-deployment",
  "version": 2,
  "scope": "amond",
  "public": false,
  "github": {
    "enabled": false
  "builds": [
    { "src": "./public/**", "use": "@now/static" }
  "routes": [
    { "src": "/(.*)", "dest": "public/$1" }

Project Linking

You should link a project via Now CLI in locally.

When running now in a directory for the first time, Now CLI needs to know which scope and Project you want to deploy your directory to. You can choose to either link an existing project or to create a new one.

NOTE: Project linking requires at least version 17 of Now CLI. If you have an earlier version, please update to the latest version.

? Set up and deploy “~/web/my-lovely-project”? [Y/n] y
? Which scope do you want to deploy to? My Awesome Team
? Link to existing project? [y/N] y
? What’s the name of your existing project? my-lovely-project
🔗 Linked to awesome-team/my-lovely-project (created .now and added it to .gitignore)

Once set up, a new .now directory will be added to your directory. The .now directory contains both the organization(now-org-id) and project(now-project-id) id of your project.
