Pagefront allows you to deploy your Ember app with surprisingly little setup. We’ll get you up and running in just two easy steps. If you have an Ember app already created, awesome—you can skip this next bit. If not, you can still follow along with this guide by creating an example app:

ember new example-app

Then, make sure you navigate into your app's directory:

cd example-app

Installing

To install the Pagefront CLI, you just need to pick a unique name for your app and run:

ember install ember-pagefront --app=YOUR_APP_NAME

Deploy Your App

Once everything has successfully installed, you are ready to go. Now deploy your app!

ember deploy production

Boom. That's all it takes. Your app is now live! Check it out by visiting the url outputted by the ember deploy production command.

Claiming Your App

This quickstart approach allows you to start deploying your app right away without even having to sign up for Pagefront. However, as soon as you want to start adding custom domains or setting up SSL or anything like that, you will need to "claim" your app. This can be done by simply running:

ember claim

This will open up the Pagefront dashboard. You may need to sign up or log in first, but once you do that, you'll be taken to a page like this:

Claim app

Just click "Me" and the app is yours. You'll be taken to the app page where you'll see the first release you just created:

First Release

That's it! That's all you need to know to get started with Pagefront. For information on other features like adding custom domains or setting up SSL, check out the rest of our guides.
