Deploying

Before you can use your applicate, you must first deploy it.

Deploy your Application

The hof CLI commands are run from your application directory.

hof app push
hof app deploy

The first deployment will take about 5 minutes. You can check the status with:

hof app status

Once you see:

https://<app-name>.<username>.live.hofstadter.io
<username> <app-name>
Client:   running
Server:   running
System:   running

your application is running.

Now we can migrate and seed the database with entries using:

hof db reset

Once this is complete, you can follow the link from hof app status to use your app.

Updating an Application

During the course of development you will be pushing changes and updating the database.

Run the first or both, depending on the change:

hof app push
hof db reset

When you want to checkpoint the database, run:

hof db checkpoint

Shutdown an Application

To shutdown an application, run

hof app shutdown

You can later redeploy your application and pick up where you left off, with your data and configuration still in place.
