In this section, we are going to deploy the retail store to your account using two main tools:
Let start first with cloning the repository:
git clone https://github.com/epsagon/retail-store-workshop.git cd retail-store-workshop
To deploy run the following commands. Make sure to replace
<REGION> with your desired region. In our example we are using
cd backend sudo pip3 install boto3 npm install npm install -g serverless sls deploy --region <REGION>
Upon successful deployment, we can see the following output:
Make sure to copy the endpoint, because we can use it soon.
Now let’s create some items in our stock:
python update_db.py 4 <REGION>
update_db.py script puts items (in this case 4) into our DynamoDB. Make sure to use the same region as before.
cd ../frontend npm install -g yarn scottyjs yarn install
Now, let’s copy the endpoint to the file
Make sure to change only to hostname part, and leave the string ending with
Now we can deploy our frontend:
npm run build scotty --nocdn --spa --source ./build -b <BUCKET_NAME> -r <REGION>
<BUCKET_NAME> choose a unique name for the S3 bucket that will be created for the website. It can be any name! In the example, we are using
Type in the region as the same
<REGION> you’ve used before
Note: This is a public bucket to host the static website. This name must be unique. If you encounter an Access Denied error, please note that it is mandatory to have permissions to create a public S3 Bucket.
Now that our store is live, let’s open our browser and get to it:
At this point, you’ll probably see a loading circle that never ends… That’s a starting point for troubleshooting!
