Getting Started

Aerobatic is a static website hosting platform, used by thousands of developers to host websites built with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript - including output from static site generators, and modern Single Page Apps (SPAs).

To have your website live and served from our global Content Delivery Network (CDN) in seconds:

1. Install the aerobatic-cli from npm:

[$] npm install aerobatic-cli -g

If you don’t already have Node.js installed, you can get it download it from here.

2. Create an Aerobatic account:

Register at https://dashboard.aerobatic.com/register

3. Deploy your first website:

[$] mkdir aerobatic-test-website
[$] cd aerobatic-test-website
[$] echo "<html>First Aerobatic Website</html>" > index.html
[$] aero create -n your-site-name
[$] aero deploy

In less than 30 seconds your website will be deployed to an https URL on our global CDN.

Or use a theme

You can also create a new site using a packaged theme for Jekyll, Hugo, or plain HTML5 sites. Below are some examples you can try or browse the Aerobatic theme gallery for something that catches your eye.

[$] aero create --theme jekyll/agency
[$] aero create --theme hugo/creative-portfolio
[$] aero create --theme html5/sb-business-casual
