  1. Log in to your GitHub account and click on the ‘+’ icon in the top-right corner of the page.
  2. Select ‘New repository’ from the dropdown menu.

Step 2: Connect your repository to Cloudflare Pages

Now that you have a repository, you need to connect it to Cloudflare Pages. Follow these steps to connect your repository:

  1. Login to your Cloudflare account and navigate to the ‘Pages’ section.
  2. Click on the ‘Create a project’ button.
  3. Select your GitHub account and the repository you just created.
  4. Choose the branch you want to deploy (typically, the main branch) and click ‘Begin setup’.

Step 3: Configure your build settings

The next step is to configure your build settings. Follow these steps to configure your build settings:

  1. In the ‘Build settings’ tab, choose the ‘Svelte’ preset.
  2. Configure any additional build settings you need, such as environment variables or custom commands.
  3. Click ‘Save and Deploy’ to build and deploy your SvelteKit app.

Once your app is deployed, you can test it by clicking on the ‘Visit site’ button in the top-right corner of the Cloudflare Pages dashboard. If everything works as expected, you should see your SvelteKit app up and running.

Step 5: Configure custom domains (optional)

If you want to use a custom domain for your SvelteKit app, you can configure it in the ‘Custom domains’ tab of the Cloudflare Pages dashboard. Follow these steps to configure a custom domain:

  1. Add your custom domain to Cloudflare.
  2. In the ‘Custom domains’ tab, click on ‘Add custom domain’ and enter your custom domain.
