Deploy Radiks app to Netlify

#1

Hello, I’m quite new to the Blockstack ecosystem and new to web development altogether, but I read through the documentation and was able to build a chat app with real-time translation based off of the Radiks tutorial - Banter. I’ve got a prototype working on localhost and am ready to deploy it to Netlify, but am running into a build error. Here is the GitHub repo and a gist of the failed deploy log from Netlify.

If anyone can shed some light on this, that would be highly appreciated!!

If you’re using Banter as a base, you can’t deploy it on Netlify. Radiks apps have a server and database component, so I would recommend using something like Heroku.

Once you have the Heroku CLI installed, you can run:

heroku apps:create my-app-name
heroku addons:add mongolab
git push heroku master
heroku ps:scale web=1

I think that would work, this is from memory.

I am using https://render.com/ which is cheaper than Heroku and is working really well :slight_smile:

Thank you Hank! That makes a lot of sense, I will try again with Heroku
