Setup a development environment on a VPS

If you want to develop using a Virtual Private Server, you will need to configure the url for the API and the hostname. First, you need to edit the client/src/environments/environment.hmr.ts file by replacing the localhost in the apiUrl field with the address of your VPS. Thus, the Hot Module Replacement from Webpack will be set up for developping with live-reload.

Next, you will need to edit the config/default.yaml file. Just replace the localhost with your VPS address in the following hostname fields :

listen:
  hostname: 'my-vps-address.net'
  port: 9000

webserver:
  https: false
  hostname: 'my-vps-address.net'
  port: 9000

Then, you just need to listen to https://my-vps-address.net:3000/ in your web browser.
