Qwik City App ⚡️

Project Structure

This project is using Qwik with QwikCity. QwikCity is just a extra set of tools on top of Qwik to make it easier to build a full site, including directory-based routing, layouts, and more.

Inside your project, you'll see the following directory structure:

├── public/
│   └── ...
└── src/
    ├── components/
    │   └── ...
    └── routes/
        └── ...
  • src/routes: Provides the directory based routing, which can include a hierarchy of layout.tsx layout files, and an index.tsx file as the page. Additionally, index.ts files are endpoints. Please see the routing docs for more info.

  • src/components: Recommended directory for components.

  • public: Any static assets, like images, can be placed in the public directory. Please see the Vite public directory for more info.

Add Integrations and deployment

Use the pnpm qwik add command to add additional integrations. Some examples of integrations include: Cloudflare, Netlify or Express server, and the Static Site Generator (SSG).

pnpm qwik add # or `yarn qwik add`

Development

Development mode uses Vite's development server. During development, the dev command will server-side render (SSR) the output.

npm start # or `yarn start`

Note: during dev mode, Vite may request a significant number of .js files. This does not represent a Qwik production build.

Preview

The preview command will create a production build of the client modules, a production build of src/entry.preview.tsx, and run a local server. The preview server is only for convenience to locally preview a production build, and it should not be used as a production server.

pnpm preview # or `yarn preview`

Production

The production build will generate client and server modules by running both client and server build commands. Additionally, the build command will use Typescript to run a type check on the source code.

pnpm build # or `yarn build`

Vercel Edge

This starter site is configured to deploy to Vercel Edge Functions, which means it will be rendered at an edge location near to your users.

Installation

The adaptor will add a new vite.config.ts within the adaptors/ directory, and a new entry file will be created, such as:

└── adaptors/
    └── vercel-edge/
        └── vite.config.ts
└── src/
    └── entry.vercel-edge.tsx

Additionally, within the package.json, the build.server script will be updated with the Vercel Edge build.

Production build

To build the application for production, use the build command, this command will automatically run pnpm build.server and pnpm build.client:

pnpm build

Dev deploy

To deploy the application for development:

pnpm deploy

Notice that you might need a Vercel account in order to complete this step!

Production deploy

The project is ready to be deployed to Vercel. However, you will need to create a git repository and push the code to it.

You can deploy your site to Vercel either via a Git provider integration or through the Vercel CLI.
