Build and deploy

Cloudflare Pages

Edit this page on GitHub

To deploy to Cloudflare Pages, use adapter-cloudflare.

This adapter will be installed by default when you use adapter-auto. If you plan on staying with Cloudflare Pages, you can switch from adapter-auto to using this adapter directly so that values specific to Cloudflare Workers are emulated during local development, type declarations are automatically applied, and the ability to set Cloudflare-specific options is provided.


  • adapter-cloudflare – supports all SvelteKit features; builds for Cloudflare Pages
  • adapter-cloudflare-workers – supports all SvelteKit features; builds for Cloudflare Workers
  • adapter-static – only produces client-side static assets; compatible with Cloudflare Pages


Install with npm i -D @sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare, then add the adapter to your svelte.config.js:

import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare';
Cannot find module '@sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare' or its corresponding type declarations.2307Cannot find module '@sveltejs/adapter-cloudflare' or its corresponding type declarations.
export default {
kit: {
adapter: adapter({
// See below for an explanation of these options
routes: {
include: ['/*'],
exclude: ['<all>']
platformProxy: {
persist: './your-custom-path'



Allows you to customise the _routes.json file generated by adapter-cloudflare.

  • include defines routes that will invoke a function, and defaults to ['/*']
  • exclude defines routes that will not invoke a function — this is a faster and cheaper way to serve your app's static assets. This array can include the following special values:
    • <build> contains your app's build artifacts (the files generated by Vite)
    • <files> contains the contents of your static directory
    • <prerendered> contains a list of prerendered pages
    • <all> (the default) contains all of the above

You can have up to 100 include and exclude rules combined. Generally you can omit the routes options, but if (for example) your <prerendered> paths exceed that limit, you may find it helpful to manually create an exclude list that includes '/articles/*' instead of the auto-generated ['/articles/foo', '/articles/bar', '/articles/baz', ...].


Preferences for the emulated platform.env local bindings. See the getPlatformProxy Wrangler API documentation for a full list of options.


Please follow the Get Started Guide for Cloudflare Pages to begin.

When configuring your project settings, you must use the following settings:

  • Framework preset – SvelteKit
  • Build commandnpm run build or vite build
  • Build output directory.svelte-kit/cloudflare

Runtime APIs

The env object contains your project's bindings, which consist of KV/DO namespaces, etc. It is passed to SvelteKit via the platform property, along with context, caches, and cf, meaning that you can access it in hooks and endpoints:

export async function POST({ request, platform }) {
Binding element 'request' implicitly has an 'any' type.
Binding element 'platform' implicitly has an 'any' type.
Binding element 'request' implicitly has an 'any' type.
Binding element 'platform' implicitly has an 'any' type.
const x = platform.env.YOUR_DURABLE_OBJECT_NAMESPACE.idFromName('x');

SvelteKit's built-in $env module should be preferred for environment variables.

To include type declarations for your bindings, reference them in your src/app.d.ts:

declare global {
	namespace App {
		interface Platform {
			env?: {
				YOUR_DURABLE_OBJECT_NAMESPACE: DurableObjectNamespace;

export {};

Testing Locally

Cloudflare Workers specific values in the platform property are emulated during dev and preview modes. Local bindings are created based on the configuration in your wrangler.toml file and are used to populate platform.env during development and preview. Use the adapter config platformProxy option to change your preferences for the bindings.

For testing the build, you should use wrangler version 3. Once you have built your site, run wrangler pages dev .svelte-kit/cloudflare.


Functions contained in the /functions directory at the project's root will not be included in the deployment, which is compiled to a single _worker.js file. Functions should be implemented as server endpoints in your SvelteKit app.

The _headers and _redirects files specific to Cloudflare Pages can be used for static asset responses (like images) by putting them into the /static folder.

However, they will have no effect on responses dynamically rendered by SvelteKit, which should return custom headers or redirect responses from server endpoints or with the handle hook.

Accessing the file system

You can't use fs in Cloudflare Workers — you must prerender the routes in question.
