Remix

Reference doc for the `sst.aws.Remix` component.

The Remix component lets you deploy a Remix app to AWS.

Minimal example

Deploy a Remix app that’s in the project root.

new sst.aws.Remix("MyWeb");

Change the path

Deploys the Remix app in the my-remix-app/ directory.

new sst.aws.Remix("MyWeb", {
path: "my-remix-app/"
});

Add a custom domain

Set a custom domain for your Remix app.

new sst.aws.Remix("MyWeb", {
domain: "my-app.com"
});

Redirect www to apex domain

Redirect www.my-app.com to my-app.com.

new sst.aws.Remix("MyWeb", {
domain: {
name: "my-app.com",
redirects: ["www.my-app.com"]
}
});

Link resources to your Remix app. This will grant permissions to the resources and allow you to access it in your app.

const bucket = new sst.aws.Bucket("MyBucket");
new sst.aws.Remix("MyWeb", {
link: [bucket]
});

You can use the SDK to access the linked resources in your Remix app.

app/root.tsx
import { Resource } from "sst";
console.log(Resource.MyBucket.name);

Constructor

new Remix(name, args?, opts?)

Parameters

RemixArgs

fileOptions: [
{
files: ["**/*.css", "**/*.js"],
ignore: "main/index-*.css",
cacheControl: "private,no-cache,no-store,must-revalidate"
}
]
}
}
assets.fileOptions[].cacheControl?

assets.fileOptions[].ignore?

Type string | string[]

A glob pattern or array of glob patterns of files to exclude from the ones matched by the files glob pattern.

assets.nonVersionedFilesCacheHeader?

Type Input<string>

Default “public,max-age=0,s-maxage=86400,stale-while-revalidate=8640”

The Cache-Control header used for non-versioned files, like index.html. This is used by both CloudFront and the browser cache.

The default is set to not cache on browsers, and cache for 1 day on CloudFront.

{
assets: {
nonVersionedFilesCacheHeader: "public,max-age=0,no-cache"
}
}

assets.textEncoding?

Type Input<none | ascii | utf-8 | iso-8859-1 | windows-1252>

Default “utf-8”

Character encoding for text based assets, like HTML, CSS, JS. This is used to set the Content-Type header when these files are served out.

If set to "none", then no charset will be returned in header.

{
assets: {
textEncoding: "iso-8859-1"
}
}

assets.versionedFilesCacheHeader?

Type Input<string>

Default “public,max-age=31536000,immutable”

The Cache-Control header used for versioned files, like main-1234.css. This is used by both CloudFront and the browser cache.

The default max-age is set to 1 year.

{
assets: {
versionedFilesCacheHeader: "public,max-age=31536000,immutable"
}
}

buildCommand?

Type Input<string>

Default “npm run build”

The command used internally to build your Remix app.

If you want to use a different build command.

{
buildCommand: "yarn build"
}

domain?

Type Input<string | Object>

Set a custom domain for your Remix app.

Automatically manages domains hosted on AWS Route 53, Cloudflare, and Vercel. For other providers, you’ll need to pass in a cert that validates domain ownership and add the DNS records.

By default this assumes the domain is hosted on Route 53.

{
domain: "example.com"
}

For domains hosted on Cloudflare.

{
domain: {
name: "example.com",
dns: sst.cloudflare.dns()
}
}

Specify a www. version of the custom domain.

{
domain: {
name: "domain.com",
redirects: ["www.domain.com"]
}
}

domain.aliases?

Type Input<string[]>

Alias domains that should be used. Unlike the redirect option, this keeps your visitors on this alias domain.

So if your users visit app2.domain.com, they will stay on app2.domain.com in their browser.

{
domain: {
name: "app1.domain.com",
aliases: ["app2.domain.com"]
}
}

domain.cert?

Type Input<string>

The ARN of an ACM (AWS Certificate Manager) certificate that proves ownership of the domain. By default, a certificate is created and validated automatically.

The certificate will be created in the us-east-1 region as required by AWS CloudFront. If you are creating your own certificate, you must also create it in us-east-1.

To manually set up a domain on an unsupported provider, you’ll need to:

  1. Validate that you own the domain by creating an ACM certificate. You can either validate it by setting a DNS record or by verifying an email sent to the domain owner.
  2. Once validated, set the certificate ARN as the cert and set dns to false.
  3. Add the DNS records in your provider to point to the CloudFront distribution URL.
{
domain: {
name: "domain.com",
dns: false,
cert: "arn:aws:acm:us-east-1:112233445566:certificate/3a958790-8878-4cdc-a396-06d95064cf63"
}
}

domain.dns?

Type Input<false | sst.aws.dns | sst.cloudflare.dns | sst.vercel.dns>

Default sst.aws.dns

The DNS provider to use for the domain. Defaults to the AWS.

Takes an adapter that can create the DNS records on the provider. This can automate validating the domain and setting up the DNS routing.

Supports Route 53, Cloudflare, and Vercel adapters. For other providers, you’ll need to set dns to false and pass in a certificate validating ownership via cert.

Specify the hosted zone ID for the Route 53 domain.

{
domain: {
name: "example.com",
dns: sst.aws.dns({
zone: "Z2FDTNDATAQYW2"
})
}
}

Use a domain hosted on Cloudflare, needs the Cloudflare provider.

{
domain: {
name: "example.com",
dns: sst.cloudflare.dns()
}
}

Use a domain hosted on Vercel, needs the Vercel provider.

{
domain: {
name: "example.com",
dns: sst.vercel.dns()
}
}

domain.name

Type Input<string>

The custom domain you want to use.

{
domain: {
name: "example.com"
}
}

Can also include subdomains based on the current stage.

{
domain: {
name: `${$app.stage}.example.com`
}
}

domain.redirects?

Type Input<string[]>

Alternate domains to be used. Visitors to the alternate domains will be redirected to the main name.

Use this to create a www. version of your domain and redirect visitors to the apex domain.

{
domain: {
name: "domain.com",
redirects: ["www.domain.com"]
}
}

environment?

Type Input<Record<string, Input<string>>>

Set environment variables in your Remix app. These are made available:

  1. In remix build, they are loaded into process.env.
  2. Locally while running sst dev remix dev.
{
environment: {
API_URL: api.url,
STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY: "pk_test_123"
}
}

invalidation?

Type Input<false | Object>

Default {paths: “all”, wait: false}

Configure how the CloudFront cache invalidations are handled. This is run after your Remix app has been deployed.

Wait for all paths to be invalidated.

{
invalidation: {
paths: "all",
wait: true
}
}

invalidation.paths?

Type Input<string[] | all | versioned>

Default “all”

The paths to invalidate.

You can either pass in an array of glob patterns to invalidate specific files. Or you can use one of these built-in options:

  • all: All files will be invalidated when any file changes
  • versioned: Only versioned files will be invalidated when versioned files change

Invalidate the index.html and all files under the products/ route. This counts as two invalidations.

{
invalidation: {
paths: ["/index.html", "/products/*"]
}
}

invalidation.wait?

Type Input<boolean>

Default false

Configure if sst deploy should wait for the CloudFront cache invalidation to finish.

Waiting for this process to finish ensures that new content will be available after the deploy finishes. However, this process can sometimes take more than 5 mins.

{
invalidation: {
wait: true
}
}

Type Input<any[]>

Link resources to your Remix app. This will:

  1. Grant the permissions needed to access the resources.
  2. Allow you to access it in your site using the SDK.

Takes a list of resources to link to the function.

{
link: [bucket, stripeKey]
}

path?

Type Input<string>

Default ”.”

Path to the directory where your Remix app is located. This path is relative to your sst.config.ts.
