How to structure and deploy an Angular2 app with a Flask back-end api while using Nginx and Gunicorn.

I’m having a Linux based Droplet(Ubuntu 16.04). I need to know the application structure to follow. Also, where should the Nginx root point to; and if possible the custom server block config for the Nginx server.

I would recommend starting with this guide to deploy your flask API.

With your Angular2 app running on the same droplet you should be able to add a second Location block in your nginx configuration using proxy_pass to pass through communications to angular. This guide provides some examples of nginx proxy_pass configuration for another service running on it’s own port on the same droplet.
