Sample App for Static HTML Assets

We provide a sample app using HTML that you can deply on App Platform.

To try it out, fork the HTML GitHub repository to your account so that you have a copy of it stored to the cloud.

Then, create an app using your fork of this repo as the source. App Platform will inspect the code, automatically detect the kind of component to create, and use the correct buildpack to create and deploy a container. From there, you can push changes to your fork and see App Platform automatically re-deploy the update to your app.

The README file in the root of the sample app's repository has full instructions on how to run this particular sample, including any configuration details you may need to adjust, how to make changes and instantly see them live, and lifecycle management information.


  • For App Platform to detect static assets, the repo must have an index.html file at its root. Alternatively, you may set the index_document property on the static site's spec to a different filename such as home.html to use that file instead of index.html.
