  1. Hosting an Angular app using Github Pages
  2. Deploy Angular App using AWS S3 (👈 we are here)

In this blog we are going to learn how an Angular app can be deployed to AWS S3 within couple of minutes.

Prerequisites

  2. Angular CLI
  3. AWS account

Steps

1. Create an Angular app and then create it’s production build using following commands,

2. Go to S3 page in your AWS services, you will see this page

4. Now open the bucket and click on upload to upload all the generated files after we created production build.

5. Make sure you select “grant public read access to this object(s)” in manage public permission drop down and then hit upload.

6. Now go to properties => static website hosting => select “Use this bucket…” => type “index.html” (entry point of your app) and you it should look like this in the end,

7. Congrats 🥳🥳🥳, your angular app is now deployed to our S3 bucket at auto-generated blue link that you see in above image.
