How to redirect user from to

I’m a newcomer here, and my knowledge is somewhat limited.

Today, I undertook the migration of my Nuxt 3 website from Netlify to the DigitalOcean App Platform. While on Netlify, when a user opened ‘,’ it would automatically redirect to ‘’ with a trailing slash. However, on the DigitalOcean App Platform, ‘’ simply stays as ‘,’ which is causing an issue.

I haven’t made any changes to the code, and I’ve deployed the same version here. I would greatly appreciate any assistance with this matter.

Hey @rahulkumarsinghwalrus,

Indeed, you are correct this is not configurable out of the box with the App Platform and static sites. There is an option to do this for individual routes but it probably would not fit your needs for this use-case:

name: your-app-name
- name: your-service-name
    - path: /tricks
      redirect_to: /tricks/

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

In the meantime what you could do is to use try and configure the trailingSlash to false which ensures that Nuxt’s internal routing would not expect the use trailing slashes:

Let me know how it goes!
