I have some github repos at the moment but it would be nice to have my projects live on the web. Money is tight but I will buy server space if there’s no alternative. I only need it for the files because mlab gives you a free database.
Anyone know a food free option for the files and (sub)domain?
Check out Netlify, it pretty neat.
@SeanDez I use GitLab Pages for my projects. Are you referring to static sites or server-rendered apps?
I guess, some static sites since React compiles down to HTML/CSS/JS.
I do have repos for an API backend too though. I think that still counts as server rendering?
Usually I have to spend a few hours getting something working, this worked immediately! So impressed
Yep, Netlify is sweet, glad you like it.
I use surge.sh for front end stuff, and deploy to heroku for backend stuff.
Netlify is pretty amazing and super easy to use. I created a video detailing exactly how to deploy to Netlify: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jvp8j6zrFHE
I use Firebase hosting (single line deploy ), you don’t have to use the Firebase APIs as your backend, but if you do want to add a backend later you might need to go elsewhere, or go with the firebase API’s and or google cloud functions.
I’m currently using GitHub Pages to host my website, but I want to learn how to Heroku. I’m currently learning React and know just the basics of Node.
Since you already have a lot of github repos why not use github pages? try it man, build your portfolio and use githubpages. Just enter your username like username.github.io for the name of the site
That’s where I have my portfolio site posted.
just wanna say that freecodecamp thank u for connecting the whole world while iam at my comfortble space its amazing.happy coding this news festive season.
As long as you don’t mind your code being public, then use GitHub. If you are serious about coding though, you are going to need your own host. I have been using hosts since the 90’s, and have finally found one that I have had 0 issues with. Yes, I have used all the major name brand hosts and have had many issues with each. The one that I use is SiteGround. I trust them completely and there customer service is the best I have ever had, which I think is the most important thing with a host.
