Can I use plugins if I deploy manually?


I would like to use some plugins. Can I use them if I deploy my website using .zip upload with cURL?

If yes, do I need to create a netlify.toml file in root folder of this .zip file?

Thank you! :slight_smile:

Hey @Feriman -

I talked to some folks about this and we came to the conclusion that no, you can’t use build plugins on zip uploads, as the site will already be built and not go through a build step - so the plugin wouldn’t have a chance to run.

Could using the CLI with build plugins be a viable alternative for your use case? :thinking:
