Deploying Admin on Netlify
This is a guide for deploying Medusa Admin on Netlify. Netlify is a platform that offers hosting and backend services for applications and static websites.
1. Install the Netlify CLI
Install Netlify CLI on your machine using npm:
npm install netlify-cli -g
yarn global add netlify-cli
2. Login to your Netlify account
Connect to your Netlify account from your terminal:
Follow the instructions in your terminal.
3. Netlify setup
In order to deploy on Netlify, you need to create a new site, link the admin repository to the site and configure environment variables.
The Netlify CLI is used to achieve this.
Create a new site
Follow the instructions in your terminal to authorize and connect your Git repository.
The default build and deploy settings fit the needs of a Gatsby application, so leave these as is.
Add an environment variable
netlify env:set GATSBY_MEDUSA_BACKEND_URL "https://your-medusa-server.com"
The above environment variable should point to your Medusa server.
4. Push and deploy
Finally to deploy the admin, commit and push your changes to the repository connected in step 3.
git add .
git commit -m "Deploy Medusa Admin on Netlify"
git push origin main
Within a couple of minutes, your Medusa Admin is live and running on Netlify.
If you experience CORS issues in your new setup, you might need to add your admin url as part of the ADMIN_CORS environment variable in your server setup.
If you haven't deployed your Medusa server to use with your new admin, check out our guide Deploying on Heroku.
