Deploying ToolJet client

ToolJet client is a standalone application and can be deployed on static website hosting services such as Netlify, Firebase, S3/Cloudfront, etc.

Deploying ToolJet client on Firebase

tip

You should set the environment variable TOOLJET_SERVER_URL ( URL of the server ) while building the frontend.

For example: NODE_ENV=production TOOLJET_SERVER_URL=https://server.tooljet.com npm run build && firebase deploy

  1. Initialize firebase project
     firebase init
    Select Firebase Hosting and set build as the static file directory
  2. Deploy client to Firebase
     firebase deploy

Deploying ToolJet client with Google Cloud Storage

tip

You should set the environment variable TOOLJET_SERVER_URL ( URL of the server ) while building the frontend.

For example: NODE_ENV=production TOOLJET_SERVER_URL=https://server.tooljet.io npm run build

Using Load balancer

Tooljet client can be hosted from Cloud Storage bucket just like hosting any other static website. Follow the instructions from google documentation here.

Summarising the steps below:

  1. Create a bucket and upload files within the build folder such that the index.html is at the bucket root.

  2. Edit permissions for the bucket to assign New principal as allUsers with role as Storage Object Viewer and permit for public access for the bucket.

  3. Click on Edit website configuration from the buckets browser and specify the main page as index.html

  4. Follow the instructions on creating a load balancer for hosting a static website.

  5. Optionally, create Cloud CDN to use with the backend bucket assigned to the load balancer.

  6. After the load balancer is created there will be an IP assigned to it. Try hitting it to check the website is being loaded.

  7. Use the load balancer IP as the static IP for the A record of your domain.

Using Google App Engine

  1. Upload the build folder onto a bucket

  2. Upload app.yaml file onto bucket with the following config

    runtime: python27
    api_version: 1
    threadsafe: true

    handlers:
    - url: /
    static_files: build/index.html
    upload: build/index.html

    - url: /(.*)
    static_files: build/\1
    upload: build/(.*)
  3. Activate cloud shell on your browser and create build folder

    mkdir tooljet-assets
  4. Copy the uploaded files onto an assets folder which is to be served

    gsutil rsync -r gs://your-bucket-name/path-to-assets ./tooljet-assets
  5. Deploy static assets to be served

    cd tooljet-assets && gcloud app deploy
