Project description


PyPI GitHub changelog CircleCI License

Datasette plugin for publishing data using Vercel.


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ pip install datasette-publish-vercel


First, install the Vercel CLI tool by following their instructions.

Run vercel login to login to (or create) an account.

Now you can use datasette publish vercel to publish your data:

datasette publish vercel my-database.db --project=my-database

The --project argument is required - it specifies the project name that should be used for your deployment. This will be used as part of the deployment's URL.

Other options

  • --no-prod deploys to the project without updating the "production" URL alias to point to that new deployment. Without that option all deploys go directly to production.
  • --debug enables the Vercel CLI debug output
  • --token allows you to pass a Now authentication token, rather than needing to first run now login to configure the tool
  • --public runs vercel --public to publish the application source code at /_src e.g. and make recent logs visible at /_logs e.g.
  • --generate-dir - by default this tool generates a new Vercel app in a temporary directory, deploys it and then deletes the directory. Use --generate-dir=my-app to output the generated application files to a new directory of your choice instead. You can then deploy it by running vercel in that directory.

Full help

Warning: Some of these options are not yet implemented by this plugin. In particular, the following do not yet work:
