Deploying an Angular app using Docker/Dokku

I’m using a Digital Ocean droplet + Dokku (Docker) and I’m curious about the best way to deploy an Angular app.

Angular apps are static files. What are the recommended and/or easiest ways to setup a server to serve them (on Dokku + VPS)?

  • How do I run the Hetionet v1.0 docker container?
  • AngularJS and NodeJS app in Docker
  • Dokku push resulting in broken pipe when deploying to Digital Ocean
  • What are default credentials for docker cloud Ubuntu node?
  • Spring-boot application wont boot at startup inside docker
  • Hapi.js is not listening to subdomains?
  • I’ve seen a number of ways floated on blogs but thought asking here might be helpful in getting ideas and generating knowledge that will help other programmers.

  • How can I use git client to access gitlab docker?
  • docker connect (101: Network is unreachable)
  • Building druid got stuck and does not move forward
  • Docker: Can't pick up config file for nginx on Windows 10
  • docker unit test setup
  • Packer instance accessing private Docker registry in AWS
  • One Solution collect form web for “Deploying an Angular app using Docker/Dokku”

    I think your question has quite a broad scope that’s not just limited to Dokku / Angular but applies to the deployment of any application using static assets.

    I would suggest starting with the 12 Factor App (http://12factor.net/) methodology and also reading Heroku’s implementation of this methodology in the form of a gem (https://github.com/heroku/rails_12factor), particularly the section under serving static files. While you might not be writing a Rails app it applies to any application.

    In summary of the gems README.md, your app should be responsible for serving the static files directly (without the help of Nginx or other web server) then rely on a CDN to distribute the files for fast access.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
