Deploy React project to S3 by using CI/CD pipelines (Part 1)
For deploying our solutions, in most cases, we use AWS. In this article we would like to look deeper on deploy to S3, which could be used as static website. In first part we will make S3 configuration, optimisation and automate manual work with CodeBuild will be in next part.
1. Create S3 bucket
Go to AWS, find it through the search bar S3. Click “Create bucket”.
Insert you bucket name
Uncheck and scroll down. Put a tick in the line that appears
Then scroll down and select “Enable” in the “Bucket Versioning” and “Default encryption” fields.
Ready. Click Create bucket
2. Setting up for hosting
In the list of buckets that opens, click on the one we just created.
Then select the “Properties” tab.
Scrolling to the bottom:
Go to Static website hosting and click Edit.
Click Enable. Go down a little lower and enter “index.html” into the index document and error document:
4. Bucket policy
Next, go to the Permissions tab:
Scroll to Bucket policy and click Edit:
Enter this code
Here replace “pipeline-app-test” with the name of your bucket.
We are done with the creation of the S3 bucket. Now let’s move on to configuring CodeBuild.
