Deploying a SvelteKit app with Static Web Apps

Install adapter-static (make sure it matches your version of SvelteKit! I’m writing this the day after SvelteKit 2.0 was released, with an updated adapter-static πŸ₯Ά)

npm i -D @sveltejs/adapter-static

Add the adapter to svelte.config.js

import adapter from '@sveltejs/adapter-static';

export default {
    kit: {
        adapter: adapter({
            pages: 'build',
            assets: 'build',
            fallback: undefined,
            precompress: false,
            strict: true

Create src/routes/+layout.js and

export const ssr = false;
export const prerender = true;

Make sure you update your auto-generated GitHub action to use the correct output_location

- name: Build And Deploy
    id: builddeploy
    uses: Azure/static-web-apps-deploy@v1
        azure_static_web_apps_api_token: ${{ secrets.AZURE_STATIC_WEB_APPS_API }}
        repo_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
        action: "upload"
        app_location: "/path-to-frontend-repo" # App source code path
        output_location: "build" # Built app content directory - optional
