Static Angular with AppPlatform

Is there something special you need to do to get AppPlatform to deliver a static angular app? I have been trying to get my production angular app to be visible with Docker and native buildpacks with no success, so i made a 1 page test angular app and failed to get that to deploy live. It doesn’t 404, It shows me a blank white page with no content, just like this guy. Using the sample-vue fork from digitalocean’s github i can get that to deploy no problem. Does someone have advice or maybe a sample-angular app i can look at? Thank you.

Hi there,

When you deploy your Angular app as a static site on the App Platform, you can specify a catch-all document to redirect all requests to index.html.

In your Static Site settings, you will have the option to choose a file (e.g. index.html) that all inexistent paths are routed to with a 200 OK status code.

This should solve the issue that you’ve described.
