You can easily deploy your Ember CLI application to a number of places using ember-cli-deploy. Or you can follow some of the recipes below.



Official Buildpack and instructions can be found here.


Continuous deployment with Azure Websites is enabled through Microsoft's module ember-cli-azure-deploy. The installation is simple just run the following commands in your Ember CLI app's root directory:

{% highlight bash %} npm install --save-dev -g ember-cli-azure-deploy azure-deploy init {% endhighlight %}

Next, set up your Azure Website's source control to point to your repo - either via GitHub, BitBucket, VSO or any of the other available options. As soon as you push a new commit to your repository, Azure Websites will automatically run ember build and deploy the contents of the created dist directory to your website's wwwroot.


To deploy your Ember CLI application to Firebase, you'll first need to enable hosting from your Firebase's Dashboard. Then, install the Firebase Tools:

{% highlight bash %} npm install -g firebase-tools {% endhighlight %}

You can then configure your application for deployment by running the following in your app's root directory and following the prompts:

{% highlight bash %} firebase init {% endhighlight %}

Finally, to deploy your application, run:

{% highlight bash %} firebase deploy {% endhighlight %}

For more configuration options, check out Firebase's Hosting Guide.

History API and Root URL

If you are deploying the app to somewhere other than the rootURL (/), you will need to configure the value of rootURL in config/environment.js. This is required for the History API, and thus also the Router, to function correctly.

For example

{% highlight javascript %} // config/environment.js if (environment === 'production') { ENV.rootURL = '/path/to/ember/app/'; } {% endhighlight %}

This will also be used as a prefix for assets, eg /path/to/ember/app/assets/vendor.js. However when building for production the value of prepend for fingerprint will be used used instead. So for

{% highlight bash %} ember build --prod {% endhighlight %}


{% highlight javascript %} // ember-cli-build.js module.exports = function(defaults) { var app = new EmberApp(defaults, { // Add options here fingerprint: { prepend: '' } }); {% endhighlight %}

the asset URLs will not use rootURL and will instead be:

As of version 2.7, baseURL is deprecated and rootURL should be used instead. See this blog post for more details.

Content Security Policy

For those interested in enhanced security for their web application, they should consider the setting up a content-security policy even for development. That way security violations can be discovered immediately, rather than in production.

For more information, see the ember-cli-content-security-policy README.

Deploying an HTTPS server using Nginx on a Unix/Linux/MacOSx machine

The following is a simple deployment with https using nginx. Http just redirects to the https server here. Don't forget to include your ssl keys in your config.

Before deployment make sure you run this command to populate the dist directory:

{% highlight bash %} ember build --environment="production" {% endhighlight %}

File: nginx.conf

## Nginx Production Https Ember Server Configuration

## https site##
server {
    listen      443 default;
    server_name <your-server-name>;
    #root        /usr/share/nginx/html;
    root        <root path to an ember /dist directory>;
    index       index.html index.htm;

    # log files
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/<your-server-name>.access.log;
    error_log   /var/log/nginx/<your-server-name>.error.log;

    # ssl files
    ssl on;
    keepalive_timeout   60;

    # include information on SSL keys, cert, protocols and ciphers
    # is a great resource for this, along with testing
    # your SSL configuration:
