Question

GitHub Repo Git LFS Files Are Not Accessible to App Platform Deployed Website

I have deployed a static Vue JS site to the Digital Ocean App Platform via my GitHub repository. Some of the files (.mp4 video files) in my GitHub repository are too large to host on GitHub by default, so I am required to use Git LFS (Large File Storage) to store these video files in GitHub.

When Digital Ocean App Platform picks up a change in my GitHub repo and deploys the website, the large files from Git LFS are not accessible on my website. Does Digital Ocean App Platform support accessing files from Git LFS which are in my GitHub repo?

My current workaround is using Digital Ocean Spaces CDN to host the large video files and using the links from Spaces to access the files from my HTML. But, it would be great if I did not need to pay extra for Digital Ocean Spaces and could just rely on App Platform.

Thanks!
