We had received reports that customers attempting to deploy via Drag & Drop were encountering a build failure. Impacted deploys were stuck in the “Uploading” stage after one drops their folder/files in the usual fashion.
This issue is now Resolved.
All deployments via Drag & Drop should successfully build as they did before.
Hello Kai, I have a problem, it seems that the same infinite load error in the deploy is active again, I have been trying to upload my page for several hours and it does not load, it is made with html, css and js, could you help me? here the link of my site https://fraustosphotography.netlify.app/
Thanks so much for reaching out. Looking at your site, it loads well and I can see several images. Additionally, looking at your deploy summary, it looks like you had active deploys as recent as June 7th. Can you confirm if you are still encountering obstacles? If you are, can you please share your project repository as well as your deploy log and any error messages you are seeing?
Same problem now! Trying to manually deploy React build folder causes an infinite “Creating deploy upload records” message. Deploying the test folder with random files seems ok, however the actual “build” folder from react doesnt work.
It looks like the issue is back. Last manual deploy worked on Friday 15th, 2022 for me. Today the “Netlify’s robots are busy deploying your site to our CDN.” does not disappear…
As mentioned here, using the CLI is not an option for me.
I managed to get a response with some transparency here:
Netlify don’t believe it to be a re-occurance of the bug that prompted this thread, but simply that the “Drag & Drop” feature is inherently prone to failure.
It’s dependent on things like the size of the project being uploaded, your browser memory and the stability of your network connection.
The worst part of its behavior is that it doesn’t provide a timely contextual error message when it does fail, so you can end up stuck on a spinner for an extremely long time, and then you aren’t guided as to what went wrong or how to fix it.
As Netlify consider it the “least-desirable and least-capable upload method”, they’re unlikely to improve it, so if possible you really should use the Netlify CLI, which is a core part of their system and likely to be much better supported.
@dan_troyer Just check the support guide that they posted:
There are apparently many ways that the “Drag & Drop” feature will fail almost silently, so you just have to check your project for the various ways that it’s known to fail… or give up and move to the Netlify CLI.
As mentioned here, using the CLI is not an option for me:
“Using the CLI is not an option, because it’s a Blazor app and Node.js is not installed as instructed on the “Get started with Netlify CLI” site.”
Maybe there is a better way to upload. Let me describe my process. If you think, it can be improved, don’t hesitate to tell me:
It is a Blazor PWA. I use Visual Studio 2022 and github. Before I publish, I run an Excel marco, that works as an obfuscator. As an example, it renames all variables to v + a number, e. g. var price = 123d; is replaced by var v1 = 123d;. After creating the publish files, I undo all the changes, because obviously I do not want to work with these cryptic variable names. This is important, because I do not commit nor push the obfuscated code.
