Checklist du Déploiement

Set the Node.JS environment to production

Set the NODE_ENV (or FOAL_ENV) environment variable to production.

NODE_ENV=production npm run start

Use HTTPS

You must use HTTPS to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks. Otherwise, your credentials and authentication tokens will appear in clear on the network.

If you use cookies, make sure to let them only be sent to the server when the request is made using SSL. You can do such thing with the cookie secure directive.

config/production.yml (example)

settings:
// If you use sessions
session:
cookie:
secure: true
// If you use JWT
jwt:
cookie:
secure: true

Generate Different Secrets

Use different secrets for your production environment (JWT, etc). Specify them using environment variables or a .env file.

.env (example)

SETTINGS_JWT_SECRET=YZP0iv6gM+VBTxk61l8nKUno2QxsQHO9hm8XfeedZUw

You can generate 256-bit secrets encoded in base64 with the following command:

foal createsecret

Database Credentials & Migrations

Use different credentials for your production database. Specify them using environment variables or a .env file.

If you use database migrations, run them on your production server with the following command:

npm run migrations

Files to Upload

If you install dependencies and build the app on the remote host, then you should upload these files:

config/
ormconfig.js
package-lock.json
package.json
public/ # this may depend on how the platform manages static files
src/
tsconfig.app.json

Then you will need to run npm install and npm run build.

If you get an error such as Foal not found error, it is probably because the dev dependencies (which include the @foal/cli package) have not been installed. To force the installation of these dependencies, you can use the following command: npm install --production=false.

If you install dependencies and build the app on your local host directly, then you should upload these files:

build/
config/
node_modules/
ormconfig.js
package-lock.json
package.json
public/ # this may depend on how the platform manages static files
