Static Site Generation and Adapters

Here we will look at adding an adapter and building what we have so that we can get it ready to deploy and be hosted.

npx ncu -i
npm install --save-dev @sveltejs/adapter-static@next
npm run build

I was getting only js files when I tried to build. I saw a red 404 message in the console::

404 /posts/Goodbye (linked from /posts)

I renamed my goodbye.md to goodbye.md.bak, then ran again and got the same 404 but for /posts/Hello. So I renamed hello.md to hello.md.bak and tried building again. This time it looked like it built correctly and I managed to get to the step where we use npx serve.

I'm not sure what to make of this yet but removing those two MD files allowed me to move on for the time being. It's a bandaid for anyone who's stuck here.

Not working for me with static adapter @1.0.0-next.29. It does not generate any static files – only .js

Hi, it gives me this error when I do the npm command:

$ npm install —save-dev @sveltejs/adapter-static@next 1 ↵ npm ERR! arg Argument starts with non-ascii dash, this is probably invalid: —save-dev npm ERR! code EINVALIDTAGNAME npm ERR! Invalid tag name "—save-dev": Tags may not have any characters that encodeURIComponent encodes.

Thanks @Raul! I should have posted my solution. I installed "npm-check-updates" globally first.

npm install -g npm-check-updates

@Joe Astuccio I can replicate your issue! An alternative is to install the correct one locally instead of running it with npx

I am getting an issue with npx ncu -i That command returns National Central University Taiwan's weather info instead of npm-check-updates package.
