This project is created to help learn docker configurations for frontend projects.
Example node install instructions for LTS node 10.x:
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | bash sudo apt install -y nodejs
Check your install with
node -v && npm -v
Install all packages with
Starting in production mode
Notice, that all the information are not needed in all the exercises.
Exercise 1.10 -> to run the project
To build and serve in production mode:
This builds the project to
dist folder and serves it in port 5000.
You can alternatively build the project with
npm run build to build the project to
dist folder and then serve it in any way you want, for example:
To use a npm package called serve to serve the project in port 5000:
npm install -g serve
serve -s -l 5000 dist
Test that the project is running by going to http://localhost:5000
Exercise 1.12 -> to connect to backend
By default the expected path to backend is /api. This is where the application will send requests.
To manually configure api path run with
API_URL environment value set, for example
API_URL=http://localhost:8888 npm start or
API_URL=<url> npm build
