The deploy previews feature looks great and I’d love to integrate it into a repo hosted on GitHub. However, the build to generate the HTML for the docs for that repo is quite long (30 minutes on our current CI machines) and intensive since it relies on the full project to be built first. Given that is the case, how can I utilize deploy previews? It seems like hosting the build on Netlify via the build command that
netlify init asks for isn’t tenable. The build (including the docs build) already happens on our own CI machines. Is it possible for PRs to manually upload the raw HTML (which may only be generated 30 minutes after the PR is pushed to) and still have it be a “deploy preview”?
(ps: I tried
netlify deploy manually on the built HTML and it works fine, but the missing piece is that this isn’t associated with a PR at all and doesn’t have the review features of a deploy preview)
