This guide shows you how to deploy Razzle apps on Layer0.



This framework has a connector developed for Layer0. See Connectors for more information.

System Requirements

Getting Started

To prepare your Razzle app for deployment on Layer0, run the following in the root folder of your project:

npm i -g @layer0/cli # yarn global add @layer0/cli
0 init

This will automatically add all of the required dependencies and files to your project. These include:

  • The 0/core package - Allows you to declare routes and deploy your application on Layer0
  • The 0/razzle package - Provides router middleware that automatically adds Razzle routes to Layer0 router.
  • The 0/prefetch package - Allows you to configure a service worker to prefetch and cache pages to improve browsing speed
  • The 0/react package - Provides a Prefetch component for prefetching pages
  • routes.js - A default routes file that sends all requests to Razzle. Update this file to add caching or proxy some URLs to a different origin.
  • sw/service-worker.js - The source code for your service worker, which enables prefetching when running on Layer0.
  • layer0.config.js - Contains configuration options for deploying on Layer0.
