Question

React app with Node

I am building a blog site with React and NodeJS. I am trying to deploy it here.

Any help?

Do I need a Droplet? I have everything in one github repo, frontend and backend. Do I have to deploy them separately?

Hi @bslaven,

You can use either a Droplet or App Platform for that matter. I’ll recommend you to use a Droplet and then if you decide on a later date move to App Platform.

As for frontend and backend, no, you don’t need to deploy them separately, you can deploy them on the same Droplet.

As for the deployment part, check the following tutorial:
