Follow these steps to connect your Brizy Cloud project with your Render account. This will allow you to sync your project in real time in your Render account.
Important: This connection is made via a Github account, so you'll need a free Github account in order for the Render 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 Render.
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 7. Once logged in, create a New Web Service in the Services section.
Step 8. Choose to connect Github.
Step 9. Login into your Github account and authorise Render to access it. It needs to be the same account you've linked with Brizy Cloud at Step 4.
Step 10. Choose the Github account you want to install Render 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 Render. 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 Render, you'll be redirected to your Render account. Click on the repository name in the list. In my case is my-website, but yours will be different.
Step 13. Give your web service a name and leave the rest of the fields as they are. Then press the Create Web Service button at the bottom of the page.
Step 14. Render will do its magic, synchronising your Gihub repository. It takes 1 min or so.
Step 15. Click on the generated link to access your website live.
(Optional: You can attach a custom domain from the Settings tab.)
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 Render account is connected as well. Press Disconnect if you want to cut the connection with your Render account.
From this point on, any change you make in your Brizy project, will be pushed into your Github account, and from there to Render.
Important: Please be patient and give changes a couple of minutes to be reflected on your website. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes for the updates to show.
