Deploy to a Server on Render.com

  1. Add one of the render.yaml files shown below
  2. Push code to your github repo
  3. Log in to Render.com
  4. Click on the "YAML" menu item, then click the "New from YAML" button
  5. Connect your github account then select your blitz app repo
  6. Click approve
  7. Go to "Services", click on your new Blitz service, click on "Environment"
  8. Click "Add Environment Variable", enter SESSION_SECRET_KEY as the name, then click on the "generate" button in the value field. Then click save.
  9. Your server + database will be automatically configured and started. Each git push will trigger a new deploy

Without database:

Use this

render.yaml:

services:
- type: web
name: blitzapp
env: node
plan: starter
buildCommand: yarn --frozen-lockfile --prod=false; blitz build
# If you have an out of memory error, change startCommand to "yarn next start"
startCommand: blitz start --production
envVars:
- key: NODE_ENV
value: production
- key: DATABASE_URL
fromDatabase:
name: blitzapp-db
property: connectionString
startCommand: blitz start --production -H 0.0.0.0

With Postgres database:

Update your

render.yaml to provide the DATABASE_URL environment variable to connect to your database:

services:
- type: web
name: blitzapp
env: node
plan: starter
buildCommand: yarn --frozen-lockfile --prod=false; blitz db migrate; blitz build
# If you have an out of memory error, change startCommand to "yarn next start"
startCommand: blitz start --production
envVars:
- key: NODE_ENV
value: production
- key: DATABASE_URL
fromDatabase:
name: blitzapp-db
property: connectionString
databases:
- name: blitzapp-db
plan: starter
