Qwik City App

Project Structure

This project is using Qwik with QwikCity. QwikCity is just a extra set of tools on top of Qwik to make it easier to build a full site, including directory-based routing, layouts, and more.

Inside your project, you'll see the following directory structure:

├── public/
│   └── ...
└── src/
    ├── components/
    │   └── ...
    └── routes/
        └── ...
  • src/routes: Provides the directory based routing, which can include a hierarchy of layout.tsx layout files, and an index.tsx file as the page. Additionally, index.ts files are endpoints. Please see the routing docs for more info.

  • src/components: Recommended directory for components.

  • public: Any static assets, like images, can be placed in the public directory. Please see the Vite public directory for more info.

Add Integrations and deployment

Use the npm run qwik add command to add additional integrations. Some examples of integrations include: Cloudflare, Netlify or Express server, and the Static Site Generator (SSG).

npm run qwik add # or `yarn qwik add`


Development mode uses Vite's development server. During development, the dev command will server-side render (SSR) the output.

npm start # or `yarn start`

Note: during dev mode, Vite may request a significant number of .js files. This does not represent a Qwik production build.


The preview command will create a production build of the client modules, a production build of src/entry.preview.tsx, and run a local server. The preview server is only for convenience to locally preview a production build, and it should not be used as a production server.

npm run preview # or `yarn preview`


The production build will generate client and server modules by running both client and server build commands. Additionally, the build command will use Typescript to run a type check on the source code.

npm run build # or `yarn build`
