Let's publish a simple webpage with Fission! We will write a simple webpage, register it as a Fission app, and publish it to the web.
Create a project directory and an
mkdir hello-universecd hello-universetouch index.html
Add some content to
index.html<html><head><title>Hello Universe!</title></head><body><h1>Hello Universe!</h1><p>This is a Fission powered page.</p><p>Assisted by <a href="https://fission.codes">Fission</a>.</p></body></html>
fission app register command to initialize the webpage as a Fission app. You will be prompted for a build directory.
$ fission app register👷 Build directory (.):
Press enter to set
hello-universe as your build directory, and
fission will initialize your app.
✅ App initialized as big-narrow-fuchsia-elf.fission.app⏯️ Next run fission app publish or fission app publish --watch to sync data💁 It may take DNS time to propagate this initial setup globally.In this case, you can always view your app athttps://ipfs.runfission.com/ipns/big-narrow-fuchsia-elf.fission.app
Fission will create a
fission.yaml file with your app configuration.
fission.yamlignore: url: big-narrow-fuchsia-elf.fission.appbuild: .
url is where your webpage will be on the web after it has been published,
build tells the fission which directory to publish, and
