This adapter allows Astro to deploy your SSR site to Deno targets.

Why Astro DenoSection titled Why Astro Deno
If you’re using Astro as a static site builder—its behavior out of the box—you don’t need an adapter.
If you wish to use server-side rendering (SSR), Astro requires an adapter that matches your deployment runtime.
Deno is a runtime similar to Node, but with an API that’s more similar to the browser’s API. This adapter provides access to Deno’s API and creates a script to run your project on a Deno server.
InstallationSection titled Installation
Add the Deno adapter to enable SSR in your Astro project with the following
astro add command. This will install the adapter and make the appropriate changes to your
astro.config.mjs file in one step.
If you prefer to install the adapter manually instead, complete the following two steps:
Install the Deno adapter to your project’s dependencies using your preferred package manager. If you’re using npm or aren’t sure, run this in the terminal:
astro.config.mjsproject configuration file with the changes below.
Next, Update your
preview script in
package.json with the change below.
You can now use this command to preview your production Astro site locally with Deno.
UsageSection titled Usage
After performing a build there will be a
dist/server/entry.mjs module. You can start a server by importing this module in your Deno app:
start option below for how you can have more control over starting the Astro server.
You can also run the script directly using deno:

To configure this adapter, pass an object to the
deno() function call in

port and hostnameSection titled port and hostname
You can set the port (default:
8085) and hostname (default:
0.0.0.0) for the deno server to use. If
start is false, this has no effect; your own server must configure the port and hostname.
ExamplesSection titled Examples
The Astro Deno example includes a
preview:deno command that runs the entry script directly. Run
npm run build then
npm run preview:deno to run the production deno server.
