Vue Simple Uploader Git

Posted on  by admin

Modified9 months ago. I tried uploading my files to Github, but GitHub says it's too big.


  • I then uploaded the content of the dist folder after building for production.
  • This worked just fine, but it's not very useful.
  • What is the proper way to upload a Vue.js app to GitHub?
  • What you generate (binary files which can be big) should not be versioned/pushed to GitHub.
  • It is better to use a local plugin which will, on GitHub side, build, tag and publish a release associated to your project.
  • For instance: semantic-release/github.
  • You can combine that with a GitHub Action, which can take that release, and deploy it on a remote server of your choice (provided it is publicly accessible from GitHub): see for example "How to deploy your VueJS using Github Actions (on Firebase Hosting)" from John Kilonzi.
  • For your existing dist, you should delete it (from Git only, not your disk) and add it to your .gitignore:.
  • What happens if I add a node module( like if I decide to add an image cropper).
  • How can the other contributers deal with that?
  • You need to add the declaration of that module in your project, not version the module itself.
  • For instance, using Vue.use.








Also: I host the app on netlify.


  • options {Object}

    It builds the site straight from github.

    But it wont be able to build the site if gihub doesnt have the dist folder..

    • parseTimeRemaining(timeRemaining, parsedTimeRemaining) {Function}

      See "How to deploy your Vue app with Netlify in less than 2 min!" from Jean-Philippe Fong: Netlify itself will build the dist (from your GitHub project sources) and publish it.

    An object map for file status text.

    After 0.6.0, fileStatusText can be a function with params (status, response = null), you can control the status text more flexible:
