They can be done in 3 minutes without having to be busy at the front (front) and back (back). This article is free to share with you.

PS: Don't write code?No filed domain name?No server?It's not a matter here!

Tool introduction

  • Serverless Framework : Serverless Framework is a very popular Server-Free application framework in the industry. Developers can deploy a complete and available Serverless application architecture without concern for underlying resources.
  • Hexo : Hexo is a fast, concise and efficient blog framework.Hexo uses Markdown (or another rendering engine) to parse the article, and within seconds, it can generate static pages with beautiful themes.

Deploying a Hexo Web site using the Serverless Framework takes only three steps: installation and initialization configuration of yml files deployment

Installation and Initialization

In three simple steps, you can quickly build a Serverless Hexo site using the Serverless Website component.

First, make sure the system contains the following environments:

  • Node.js (Node.js version needs to be no less than 8.6, Node.js version 10.0 and above is recommended)
  • Git

If the above application is not installed, you can refer to Installation instructions.

1. Install Serverless Framework

$ npm install -g serverless

2. Install Hexo

$ npm install -g hexo-cli

3. Initialize the project

$ hexo init hexo   # Generate hexo directory
$ cd hexo
$ npm install

After initialization, the directory of the hexo folder is as follows:

├── _config.yml
├── package.json
├── scaffolds
├── source
|   ├── _drafts
|   └── _posts
└── themes

4. Generate local blog pages

hexo g   # generate

You can generate static pages using the hexo g command, or run the following command to view page effects locally by accessing http://localhost:4000 through a browser.

hexo s   # server

Configure yml file

Under the project directory, create the serverless.yml file

cd.> serverless.yml

Write the following into the yml file above:

# serverless.yml

  component: '@serverless/tencent-website'
      src: ./localhexo/public # Upload static files generated by HEXO
      index: index.html
      error: index.html
    region: ap-guangzhou
    bucketName: my-bucket-hexo

Once the configuration is complete, the file directory is as follows:

├── .serverless
├── hexo
|   ├── public
|   ├── ...
|   ├── _config.yml
|   ├── ...
|   └── source
└── serverless.yml


Deploy with the sls command and add the--debug parameter to view information during deployment

If your account is not Land or register Tencent Cloud, you can authorize landing and registration directly through the two-dimensional code in the WeChat scan command line.

If you need to update articles in the hexo site, just rerun hexo g locally to update the local page, and then run sls to update the Hexo site directly~
