How do I use javascript in my Bitbucket Pages website?

jonayoung2003 September 16, 2019

So I've been trying to set up a website using Bitbucket Pages. I've pushed all the files to a repository I created I can access web pages there through the browser. But I get this weird error in the chrome console if the html file loads any javascript files:

"[Report Only] Refused to load the script 'xxxx' because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive: "script-src 'unsafe-eval' 'strict-dynamic' 'unsafe-inline' 'self' http: https:". 'strict-dynamic' is present, so host-based whitelisting is disabled. Note that 'script-src-elem' was not explicitly set, so 'script-src' is used as a fallback."

I have script tags in the header of my document like so:

<script src="jquery-3.4.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.csv.js"></script>
<script src=""></script>

I have looked it up and found that this is to do with CSP. So how do I sort this out? I tried adding this meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" content="default-src 'self'; script-src 'self' 'unsafe-inline'">

But this didn't work. I thought that if I omitted 'strict-dynamic' in the script-src directive that it would work. Is it not working because there are directives somewhere in a place that I cannot edit that clash with the ones in the meta tag? If so, how do I change these? CSP seems to be a rather complex and unintuitive topic I've tried to get my head around and I'm very confused. It seems that Bitbucket has some kind of policy in place that I cannot change. But I just need these scripts working. How do I do this?

Hi @jonayoung2003welcome to the Community.

You can only publish static websites on Bitbucket Cloud, as stated at Publishing a website. Dynamic sites like the one you're trying to publish are not allowed and thus the errors you're getting.

Hope that explains. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Best regards,

Ah I see, I mistakenly thought that dynamic meant the usage of server side code like PHP etc. It says that I am allowed to use Javascript on that page. So does that mean I can only use it if it is in the html document and not loaded from some other source?

Also, might this change at any point? It will be inconvenient and unscalable to have to copy and paste code everywhere.

According to the link referenced, javascript is allowed to be included... and I've used javascript extensively on my site. So I don't think that is the policy or the issue.
