Question

What requirements should have a repo folder to successfully match the "launch app" static website recognition?

Good morning. I would like to deploy a static website.

My GitLab repo root folder contains an index.html file and even a /img and a /dist subfolder. In particular this last one is the folder that I’d like to use for deploy. You can see root directory structure at this link.

Unfortunately I obtain the “Sorry, we couldn’t find an app in your repo” error in the step 2 of the Launch Your App wizard.

Does anywone know what is missing for a correct static website recognition in the procedure. Is there a list of requirements I can check?

Thank you for the support.
