Alter the src/custom.config.js file to define override any of the default settings

     * Optionally you can extern React if you already have it running globally on your site
     * This will shrink the build and use your sites window.React and window.ReactDOM

    bucketName: '',
     *  Add your bucket path here to deploy the script.

    /** set to true to debug sorting */
    debug: false,

  if (customConfig.columns) {
    // don't merge from defaults
    delete defaults.columns

  if (customConfig.ribbons) {
    // don't merge from defaults
    delete defaults.ribbons

  return require('deepmerge')(defaults, customConfig)


There are two ways to deploy the site.

  1. You can deploy the full static app
  2. You can just deploy the script and embed this on your site

1. Deploying stand alone app

  1. Run npm run build

  2. The frontend application is built and ready to go. cd into the build folder and you can deploy this html + js to your static host of choice.

2. Deploying embeddable app

This is my preferred option and is what is running on the serverless status page

  1. Run npm run build

  2. Make sure you configured your bucketName and bucketPath in src/custom.config.js then run npm run dist

<script src=""></script>
  1. Embed the script on your site and include the mountNode for the statusBoard to load
<div id='status-board'></div>
  1. Profit

Reloading for Ajax/Router driven sites

if (typeof window.statusBoardReload !== 'undefined') {
  console.log('reload from app');
