How to host one-page generated on the Flatlogic Platform applications on Heroku
Tap here and let’s go!
First of all, you need to set up the name of your application.
Next, you need to choose the Stack: Frontend, No-Backend and go to the next step.
Next, you’re choosing the starter template.
Next, you can connect your GIT repository for further work with it, or skip this step and 'Finish and Deploy' your Project.
If you click on GitHub the ‘Login’ window opens next, where you need to enter login details for your GitHub account or sign in. Next, the ‘Choose a name for your repository’ window opens, where you have to choose a name for your repository and select privacy terms.
Afterwards, you will be redirected to the settings of your application.
Working with GitHub
If you didn't connect the GitHub repository when you were creating the app, you can connect it in the Settings tab by clicking on Push to GitHub button.
The ‘Login’ window opens next, where you need to enter login details for your GitHub account or sign in.
Next, the ‘Choose a name for your repository’ window opens, where you have to choose a name for your repository and select privacy terms.
After this step, the Flatlogic Bot creates a GitHub repository for you and uploads your code there. Afterwards, you can work with the platform or with your GitHub repository.
Also, you can make changes to your code in your GitHub repository. But make sure you’re working on the right bench.
GitHub is connected to Flatlogic hosting, all deployments go directly from there. There are two branches: master & generated. Master - is for you to make changes directly in the source code. Generated is for Flatlogic Bot to make changes to the generated code. You can initiate a Flatlogic Bot commit by pressing on push to GitHub button after making changes to the app. After this, you need to create a pull request and merge generated branch into the master. It is better not to work with the Generated branch and leave it to Flatlogic Bot.
