Django + React App Deployment using App Platform in one App

Connected Tutorial
This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

Hello, I’m building a web application based on Django + react in one project (Single Repo) with backend and frontend folder in it, when I tried to deploy repo which have both app it’s not deploying in Digital Ocean App platform and getting error that Repository not found. So how can I deploy one repo app (Backend (Django) + frontend (React)) on Digital Ocean App Platform. I could see there is solution to deploy both app as separate, but looking for solution if I can deploy single app through App platform?

Thanks in advance!

Hi @UpgradeYourLogic,

The error Repository not found states that our build system did not find any files to build the app. From your description, it appears there are multiple folders(backend + frontend) in your repo which would be used for deployment. You should use the Source Directory option to choose the appropriate folder while deploying the app. You could first deploy the frontend and then add the backend as a component to the app in a similar fashion.

You could refer the mentioned link for the same.
