How to set up app with Rails backend and React frontend?


I’m new to Render as I was taught how to use Heroku but couldn’t continue using them because they removed their free option. Basically I’m just not sure how to set up an app on Render that has Ruby on Rails for the back-end with postgreSQL and React.js for the front-end.

If anyone can help me out with some tips that would be much appreciated! Thank you!


Here’s what I would do:

  1. Create a “Web Service” and deploy your Rails backend:
  2. Create a “Postgres” service for your database:
  3. Create a “Static Site” service to deploy your React frontend:
