I tried Surge.sh and it’s pretty slick.

Static web publishing for Front-End Developers

Simple, single-command web publishing. Publish HTML, CSS, and JS for free, without leaving the command line.

It’s great that there’s a generous free tier, but it comes with a couple limitations.

  • The free tier does not support redirects
  • The free tier does not automatically redirect http->https
  • Deployment is not based on diffs. The entire app is re-uploaded each time.

I tried it with baty.net and was able to create my account and deploy the site to a .surge.sh subdomain in just a few lines in the terminal. That was neat. I may try it for smaller or infrequently-deployed static sites.
