App Platform - config.yaml - catchall_document - recovery of the original path

Hello all. I am hosting a few single page applications as apps.

While it works very well for most projects, sometimes it would be very useful, if I could recover the path from catchall_document instruction in apps configuration.yaml

I am using Angular framework for the majority of my products and I cannot figure out, how to use routing with an Angular application hosted as an app. I am using droplets for such application but I would much prefer to have them as apps. After all, a single page application in Angular is just a static website.

Is there a way how to get the original path or are there any plans to have such possibility?

Thanks, Mila

Hey @nicmila

Are you referring to the preserve path directive? This is supported using DOCTL in an app spec file. App Spec Reference

You would set that to true to retain the path. It’s configured under the routes section.

Hope it helps! Nate
