Deploy a RedwoodJS Application

Getting an application running on Fly is essentially working out how to package it as a deployable image. Once packaged it can be deployed to the Fly infrastructure to run on the global application platform.

In this guide we'll learn how to deploy a RedwoodJS application on Fly.

We'll be using the standard web application generated by RedwoodJS. Check out the Redwood tutorial which guides you through building and deploying a database-backed application on

First, install flyctl, your Fly app command center, and sign up to Fly if you haven't already.

Generate a Redwood App

Now let's generate a shiny, new Redwood app and set it up for Fly deployment.

yarn create redwood-app my-redwood-project
cd my-redwood-project

Now check out the Redwood Quick Start guide to get your development environment setup and to generate some data models.

cd hello-redwood
fly launch
