Question

Dynamic HTTP Routes for CRA (using react router dom)

Hello

I just deployed my react app with digital ocean. I’m wondering how to add dynamic routes to my HTTP routes.

Currently I’m trying the following YAML configuration but it is not working.

routes:
  - path: /
  - path: /dashboard
  - path: /invoice
  - path: /patient
  - path: /profile
  - path: /patient/[id]

How can I add a dynamic route for (example):

https://mydoapp.com/patient/1
https://mydoapp.com/patient/2
https://mydoapp.com/patient/3

Am I missing something?

Thanks!

Hello @wmFish ,

Unfortunately, dynamic routing is not supported in the App Platform as of now. As a workaround, you can set the catch_all settings to index.html file. There are 2 methods to set the catchall_document.

=======

  1. Using Cloud panel UI: Log in and click on App > Settings >> click on component name > scroll down to Custom page > Edit Custom page and select Catchall > Enter index.html in the page name block > save

  2. Using App Spec: You can the catchall_document to index.html in-app spec.

Here’s the documentation link which will help you in updating your app: https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/app-platform/references/app-specification-reference/ https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/app-platform/references/command-line/
