I have only one file index.html in my git repo.
When I go to step 3 “Configure your app” there is no Static Site type selected. It shows the text that Static assets detected but in select there is no options. Is this a bug?

I tried to reproduce this with a repo that contains just an index.html file (, but it was detected as a Static Site component type during the create flow and deployed successfully:

If your repo is public, and you can share it with me, then I can fork it and see if I can spot the problem from here. Otherwise, I’d suggest reaching out to DO Support so we can take a look at your app specifically.
