Great, you’ve made it to the last step! There are many ways to deploy your finished help center.

Buliding your help center

To build your help center locally, you can run npm run build. This will compile your website into a folder called public. You can host that folder on any static hosting service you want.

If you want to try it out locally, you can run npm run serve after npm run build completed. This will serve the public folder like a static hosting service would.


If you want to have a really cool setup for your help center, you can connect Vercel and GitHub. You can set up a git repository for your help center. You can use a free private repository from GitHub for it. Then you can connect Vercel to automatically build and publish your Gatsby site whenever you push changes to your git repository on GitHub.

Since this is something which is is not specific to gatsby-starter-help-center at all, I’ll simply refer you to Vercel’s Create a Gatsby Website and Deploy It with Vercel guide.


Thank you for using this free help center. If this was useful to you, I’d be glad if you could star the repository. In case you deployed the help center and you’re using it for one of your products, I’d love to hear about it. Please open an issue and post a link to the deployed help center. You can add some details or just leave a link there. Thanks!
