An example of a dynamic deployment built using private npm modules.

Example URL: https://now-build-env-starter-dynamic-rismihvmtj.zeit.sh/

How to use

Create a readonly npm token:

npm token create --read-only

Create a secret with its value (in this example we call it npm-token):

# replace "MY_TOKEN_VALUE" with the value returned
# by the `npm token` command
now secret add npm-token MY_TOKEN_VALUE

Add a private repo (if you have any):

yarn add @my-team/private-repo

Then you are ready to deploy!


Note: this deployment is set to have its source code be public. If you intend for it to be private, set public: false in now.json.

How it Works

In now.json we defined a build env var:


And a runtime env:

  • TEXT

NPM_TOKEN is used to authenticate with the npm registry to be able to download private repositories.

TEXT is used to respond to all incoming HTTP requests.

Finally, .dockerignore is used in order to only upload files into the build stage that are necessary for this project to work.
