Deploy Yeoman-Generated Angular Apps to AWS
I'm creating an app based off of the Yeoman Angular fullstack generator.
It does a lot of cool things, like generating boilerplate, simplifying workflow with many Grunt tasks, and including lots of testing options.
I ran into two problems with it:
1) It doesn deploy to AWS out-of-the-box.
2) It isn't easy to use any database besides MongoDB.
This post deals with the former. I'll write another soon that deals with swapping-out MongoDB for sequelize.
Why doesn't it work?
The docs for this generator make it easy to deploy to heroku.
The way that
grunt-build-control accomplishes this is by establishing a remote and pushing to it.
Elastic Beanstalk on AWS doesn't have remotes.
Not only that, but it only pushes the
eb deploy will push everything.
Sadly, you won't be able to use
grunt, but you'll be ok, I promise.
- Remove any Elastic Beanstalk files in the repo. FYI, they're hidden.
- Using the terminal,
cd dist/from the project's root folder.

dist/has always been .gitignore-d.
- Run 1eb init

- Set your environmental variables, if you need them.
eb open, with your fingers crossed.
