Cloudflare Worker not automatically created

Goal: Turn Cloudflare Pages project into a full stack application by adding Cloudflare Workers.

With Pages, you can now build full-stack applications by executing code on the Cloudflare network with help from Cloudflare Workers

Issue: A Cloudflare Worker is not automatically created after adding a functions folder.

To get started, create a /functions directory at the root of your project. Writing your Functions files in this directory will automatically generate a Worker with custom functionality at the predesignated routes.

https://developers.cloudflare.com/pages/platform/functions/

Steps taken

1.) Create a Github repo with an index.html file, css and js folders
2.) Connect the Github repo to a new Cloudflare Pages project.
3.) Add folder in Github called “functions” at the root
4.) Commit the change

Result: No additional files are created in the functions folder.

Using a /functions directory will generate a routing table based on the files present in the directory.

You won’t see a worker created for functions. Functions are bundled with each Pages project.

You already quoted the part that says you need to write the functions code yourself.

The file structure should automatically be created when I add a functions folder to my root directory. That did not happen within Github.

I tried again using wrangler 2.0 on VS Code. It worked.
