Question

How to setup Django w/ React frontend on App Platform?

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

As I was following the tutorial on deploying Django to AP, the tutorial was clear on how to deploy Django, but i’m only using Django as my backend. When I deploy React to “/”, that means Django has to live elsewhere (like “/app”), which then breaks things like Django admin (django doesn’t like the new path /app/admin).

Is there a guide somewhere on this process?

Hi! So Step 5 in the tutorial shows you how to deploy your static files so that the Django admin CSS will still work. Did this step work for you?
