How do I deploy a vue.js app. Do I just upload the index.html file and dist folder??

Posted June 30, 2017 45.2k views

I’m new to both vue.js and digitalocean. In the past, when I develop a website, I just upload the index.html file and supporting folders/files to the root of the web domain. Doesn’t seem to work with a vue.js app. I’m missing something fundamental here. Appreciate any help.

Not sure if you’re still searching for help on this topic, but I recently made a Medium article that has a step-by-step process on setting up a VueJS app with DigitalOcean:

Hi @dankalagher

You can include a javascript in a file to run it client side - or you can install it by using npm and other way on the server side, which is the recommended way.

You can setup a Node droplet by using one of the pre-built images called One-Click Apps, when you create a new droplet.
