Creating and Deploying React, Ember, and Vue Apps in Codesphere

At Codesphere, we aim to streamline the development process so that you can spend less time configuring and more time writing code. In this tutorial, we'll go over how easy it is to create and deploy different kinds of web applications, namely React, EmberJS, and Vue apps.


Before we can set up the environment for the web framework we want to use, we need to create the app in Codesphere. Luckily, doing so is incredibly easy!

Simply navigate the "My Apps" page, press the "New App" button, and select Empty. You then choose your name and pricing plan, and Codesphere will create an empty app!

To create a react app, simply run the following command in your terminal:

npx create-react-app my-app

Replacing “my-app” with the name you want to use for your React project.

To deploy your app, simply run
cd my-app && npm start

You can then press the “open app” button to see your deployed app.


Since EmberJS is a very high-level framework, it requires substantial computing power to install and deploy. Therefore, your Ember app will likely require one of Codesphere's paid subscription plans to run. You find out more about pricing here:

Before you can create your Ember app, you first need to install the Ember CLI, which can be done with the following command:
sudo npm install -g ember-cli

Once the CLI is installed, you can create a new app with:
ember new my-app

To deploy your app, you can then run:
cd my-app && ember server - port 3000

You can then press the "open app" button to see your deployed app.


Vue similarly requires you to install a CLI before you can create a project. This can be done with the following command:
sudo npm install -g @vue/cli

You can then create the Vue app with:
vue create my-app

The Vue CLI will then allow you to configure your new app.
Once your app is created, you need to create a config file in your root directory. This can be done with:
cd my-app && touch vue.config.js

Next, paste the following code in the vue.config.js file, in order to allow the Vue app to run correctly within Codesphere:

module.exports = defineConfig({
    devServer: {
        port: 3000,
        allowedHosts: 'all'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Finally, you can deploy your Vue app with:
npm run serve

Ember doesn't require "substantial computing power"??, it just uses a node-based CLI. Most of the processing is babel during build. :/

Is there some other limitation?
Like, with codesandbox, ember's default setup recently surpassed the allowed storage -- but tht was mostly due to linting dependencies.
While not required, linting dependencies re essential to guide developers way from foot guns... But this means codesandbox is no longer suitable, and you need a real node environment, like what GitPod provides.. idk.. I'm rambling

Hey there, thanks for the feedback!
The thing is that Codesphere's basic plan has a very small amount of CPU and RAM available and that’s why some projects may not work. Upgrading your plan to our Awake plan or Boost plan should fix the limitations.

Shouldn't be tagged reactnative, that's something different
