To demonstrate how to deploy a Next.js, Express.js and Mongo application with Code Capsules, we’ve provided an example application which you can find on the Code Capsules GitHub repository.
Sign in to GitHub, and fork the example application by clicking “Fork” at the top-right of your screen and selecting your GitHub account as the destination.
A Capsule provides the server for hosting an application on Code Capsules.
Click the yellow
+ button, and follow the instructions below to create a Data Capsule:
To create a new Capsule for your space, follow the instructions below:
Code Capsules will automatically build your application when you’ve finished creating the Capsule.
Once your application is live, you can view the build log by selecting the “Deploy” tab and clicking the “View build log” link in the “Builds” section.
Now you need to bind the two capsules together. Navigate to the “Configure” tab of the Backend Capsule you’ve just created. Scroll to the “Bind Data Capsule” section and click on the “Bind” option at the bottom left. This enables the capsule to use the MongoDB database in the Data Capsule.
Once the binding is complete, you have to append
/app?authSource=admin to the
DATABASE_URL value under the “Capsule parameters” section on the “Configure” tab.
Confirm your changes by clicking on “Update Capsule” then restart your capsule by toggling the radio button in the top right off and on again.
After restarting the capsule, the application will now be ready to be viewed. Once the build is complete, a URL link will appear in the URL section in the “Details” tab. Click the link and you should see your deployed application.
