Step 1. Create a service
To deploy a React application, click Create in the top-left corner of your Dashboard and choose Front-end app or static website.
Step 2. Select the project to deploy
If you are logged in to Hostman with your GitHub, GitLab or Bitbucket account, at this point you will see the repository with your projects, including the private ones.
To access a different repository, click Connect another repository.
If you didn’t use your Git account credentials to log in, you’ll be able to access the necessary account now, and then select the project.
Step 3. Configure the build settings
Next, the Website customization window will appear.
Select React from the list of frameworks.
Check the default values for the directory and the build command and modify them for your project, if necessary.
The Directory with app points at the directory that will contain the index.htm or index.html file after the build. For React it will usually be build.
The Build command allows you to customize the build process. You can enter multiple commands separated by &&.
Step 4. Deploy
Click Deploy to start the build process.
Once it starts, you will enter the deployment log. The log contains all the debugging data you'll need. If there are any issues with the code, you will get warning or error messages in the log, specifying the cause of the problem. We are also here to help you solve the issues, so do not hesitate to contact us via chat.
When the deployment is complete, you will receive an e-mail notification and also see a similar log entry:
Your project is up and ready.
