Provisioning a Production Environment

You can use this public repository to provision a new application and then push your private application code there later.

Heroku

Deploy to Heroku

Clicking this button will take you to the first step of a process that, when completed, will provision production-grade infrastructure and services for your Bullet Train application which will cost about $140/month.

Once that process has completed, be sure to complete the other steps from the Deploying to Heroku documentation.

Render

Deploy to Render

Clicking this button will take you to the first step of a process that, when completed, will provision production-grade infrastructure for your Bullet Train application which will cost about $30/month.

When you're done deploying to Render, you need to go into "Dashboard" > "web", copy the server URL, and then go into "Env Groups" > "settings" and paste the URL into the value for BASE_URL.
