Hello, this can be achieved using source_dir property for your static site component in the app spec. For example something like this:

- name: frontend
  environment_slug: html
    repo: digitalocean/sample-monorepo
    branch: main
  source_dir: dist

We can see it used in the monorepo sample. Hope this helps!
