Follow these steps to connect your Brizy Cloud project with your Vercel account. This will allow you to sync your project in real time in your Vercel account.
Important: This connection is made via a Github account, so you'll need a free Github account in order for the Vercel integration to work.
Step 1. Click the Publish link on your project
Step 2. Choose the 3rd party Free Hosting option from the list
Step 3. Choose to Connect Vercel.
Step 4. At this point a popup will appear and you'll be asked to login into your Github account. If you don't have an account you can create one for free.
Step 5. Authorise Brizy on your Github account.
After you linked your Github account, two things happen:
- Brizy will create a repository into your Github account and sync your project there. The repository name will be random, but you can change it from your Github Account > Repositories List > Click on repository > Settings Tab
- your Brizy Cloud dashboard will reflect that Github is connected.
Step 6. Login into your Vercel account, or sign up for a free if you don't have one. Here is what Vercel offers in their Free account: https://vercel.com/pricing
Step 7. Once logged in, go to Projects and click on Import Project.
Step 8. Choose to connect From Git Repository.
Step 9. Click on Install Vercel for Github.
Step 10. Choose the Github account you want to install Vercel on. If you are part of an organisation you'll get multiple options, but you should choose the account you've created at Step 4.
Step 11. Choose Only selected repositories, and select the Brizy Cloud project you want to connect to Vercel. Then press Install.
(Optional: If this is a random name check Step 5 on how you can rename your Github repository to a custom one.)
Step 12. Once you install Vercel, you'll be redirected to your Vercel account. Click on Import Project from Github.
Step 13. In the popup Select your repository and then Import at the bottom.
Step 14. Give your project a name, then press Continue.
Step 15. Leave the Root Directory empty, then press Continue.
Step 16. On the next screen press Deploy.
Step 14. Vercel will do its magic, synchronising your Gihub repository. It takes 1 min or so. Click on the generated link to access your website live.
(Optional: You can attach a custom domain from Settings)
If you see this message, everything is working great, and you need to give it a couple of minutes for the project to sync. This only displays the first time.
Refresh the page in your browser a couple of times and your Brizy Cloud project should appear
At this point your Brizy Cloud dashboard should reflect that your Vercel account is connected as well. Press Disconnect if you want to cut the connection with your Vercel account.
From this point on, any change you make in your Brizy project, will be pushed into your Github account, and from there to Vercel.
Important: Please be patient and give changes a couple of minutes to be reflected on your website. Sometimes it takes a while for the updates to show.
