Build and deploy from the terminal
Done developing and ready to push to production? Run
netlify build to compile all of your code and
netlify deploy to ship it. Or, push your code to Git and let Netlify’s automated CI/CD do all the work for you.
“Decoupled web projects involve so many components. The hard part is testing all the pieces locally, together. Netlify Dev delivers this beautifully with one command.”
Netlify CLI makes local dev *painless*
Zero-config required for all of your favorite frameworks
Netlify Dev automatically detects frameworks like Astro, Next.js, Nuxt, Gatsby, Eleventy, Hugo, Jekyll, and more and handles configuration for you. Don’t like the defaults? Set your own.
Environment variables included
When the development server starts, it pulls in all of the environment variables set in your Netlify dashboard.
Ready to run serverless functions
/netlify/functions folder. Netlify handles the rest.
