Deploying React App to Netlify

A react app is a single page application which means that there’s only one document i.e. index.html file which is updated using javascript as per the requirement of the user.

In this tutorial, I am going to show you how you can deploy a react app on netlify from an existing git repository of yours.

The above rule is applicable if you have multiple routes and have used libraries like react-router in your project.

Basically what we are doing here is that we are telling netlify to redirect all the routes to our index.html file with a status code of 200 because our application is built with react and it is a single page application. We already discussed what an SPA is at the very beginning of this tutorial.

That’s all for now. Signing off.
