How can I deploy a Worker on Replit?
Create a Repl
To get started, go to repl.new, select the Cloudflare Workers template, and press Create Repl.
Once the project is created, you will be provided with a
README.md file which will walk you through step-by-step directions on how to use the Worker template.
Set up your Worker
Following the README, you can use the Run button to install the Wrangler CLI and set up a new project with all of the files and configurations needed to start building your first “Hello World!” Worker.
By pressing the Run button again, your Worker will become available on a Replit subdomain. In the example project above, we can find our project at
my-cool-project.example.repl.co. After a few additional steps (e.g. adding Cloudflare account credentials to Replit Secrets), you can run
npm run deploy to build and publish the Worker to the Cloudflare Global Network.
Want to try a real-world example?
While you can learn about the deployment experience by building a simple
hello world example, you can build a more practical application using the Cloudflare Learn module. Here you can get a step-by-step walkthrough of how to build a Notion-backed web form using Workers and Replit.
