Hey everyone! My name is Chris and I'm the founder of scotch.io and a Developer Advocate at DigitalOcean.

Excited about this hackathon and the things we'll all build! Let me know if you have any questions here or catch me on Twitter.

Hey Chris, huge fan of scotch.io, the JS introduction particularly! I've got a question for you - is a game project considered "truly silly" for the random roulette? Is it worth giving a shot, or should I go for something else in your opinion?

Denislav Gavrilov πŸ‘¨β€πŸš€πŸ€–πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

I mean - I have an idea for a game, which is not silly (I can, of course, try to make it such with funny drawings and so on) and I am thinking if it's worth going for that or
should I choose something else?

A game is a great idea! 100% go for it! Random roulette is very much for stuff like this that doesn't fit cleanly into the other categories.

I'm trying to use digital ocean from many months but I live in india. Students don't have a credit card nor a PayPal account. Missing this hackathon too :(

PayPal became available in India as of 2017, so I'm not sure why you can't use it with a bank account + PAN. DigitalOcean requires a prepayment of $5 USD to start the DO account via PayPal even with the $50 in credit for this hackathon.

Thread Thread

$5 goes through payment or is it deducted from $50 credit that they are giving?

Thread Thread

Bobby Iliev

Hey,

The $5 will be used to top up your account, this mainly applies to PayPal. Here are the two messages for each payment method again:

Credit card:
β€œWe won’t charge your card. You may see a temporary pre-authorization charge to verify the card, which will be reversed within a week.”

Paypal:
β€œTo confirm your PayPal account, you need to make a $5 pre-payment. This pre-payment will apply to any future bills.”

Thread Thread

You mean if I use PayPal I am going to be charged $5?

Is there any other alternative if I don't wish to pay?

Currently, you could choose only between PayPal and Credit card payments.

Hey Chris! Does moving existing sites over to the app platform count towards the hackathon, or no?

Hi there πŸ‘‹

I believe that it should be ok as long as you deploy the site on the App platform and the project is opensource. Also make sure to add the Deploy to DigitalOcean button for some extra points.

I have a doubt regarding how routes are setup for a static sites and it's corresponding web service.
My specific use case is to implement GitHub oauth on my react/express/GraphQL application.

Locally everything works fine, I have a button which redirects my react app to localhost:4000/auth/GitHub , which gets redirected to GitHub oauth page and then successful login redirects back localhost:3000 (react app).

But on my app platform, I can see only a single APP_URL. I'm confused which goes where and GitHub oauth requires app url & callback url ( localhost:3000 & localhost:4000/user/signin/callback ) this works well in my local env. But not sure what should I put when in production.

Collapse

It appears you need two separate apps for the frontend and backend. In that scenario, simply create 2 apps in the app platform.

Thread Thread
anupa profile image
Anup Aglawe

But the straight forward way seems to be just adding a static site component and web service component, and most probably they were meant to be used in that manner. (and not creating separate apps for client and server ).

Also, if I add a http route let's say /api on my web service component. I can access GraphQL endpoints by ${APP_URL}/api/graphql

According to the official documentation, the App Platform has three pricing tiers:

  • Starter: Free. Good for trying App Platform and deploying static sites. You can build and deploy 3 static sites for free on the Starter tier. Every additional static site costs $3/mo.
  • Basic: Starts at $5/month (for one container). Good for prototyping apps.
  • Professional: Starts at $12/month (for one container). Good for deploying production apps.

For more information you can take a look at the documentation here:

dev.to/page/official-hackathon-rules

"ELIGIBILITY. The Contest is a skill-based contest open to individuals who are at least age eighteen (18) or older or are the legal age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside and capable of forming a binding contract with Sponsor as of the date of entry, that are DEV Members (defined below) and have an active email account and Internet access throughout the Entry Period.

Just adapted this tutorial:

to create this sample of a containerized Java app that can be deployed to App Platform with a single click:

GitHub logo creativefisher / Nasa-Picture

Single-page application which display NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day

Deploy to DigitalOcean

This sample demonstrates how to run a Dockerized Java application on DigitalOcean App Platform. Since App Platform doesn't yet support Java, this sample shows how to accomplish this using Dockerfile.

This sample has been adapted from github.com/wkrzywiec/Nasa-Picture

Getting Started

These steps will get this sample application running for you using DigitalOcean.

Note: Following these steps will result in charges for the use of DigitalOcean services

Requirements

Forking the Sample App Source Code

To use all the features of App Platform, you need to be running against your own copy of this application. To make a copy, click the Fork button above and follow the on-screen instructions. In this case, you'll be forking this repo as a starting point for your own app (see Github documentation to learn more about forking repos.

After forking…

how much amount will be charge for credit card preauthorization?

Thread Thread
bobbyiliev profile image
Bobby Iliev • Edited

"When you add a credit card to your DigitalOcean account, we may send a preauthorization request to the issuing bank. This is to verify that the card being added has been issued by the bank and that they will authorize the charges. These temporary preauthorization holds range from $1 to $15 and may appear on your statement for up to 7 days, but no funds are being transferred from your card or account to DigitalOcean."
