Follow these steps to connect your Brizy Cloud project with your Fast.io account. This will allow you to sync your project in real time in your Fast.io account.
Important: This connection is made via a Github account, so you'll need a free Github account in order for the Fast.io 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 Fast.io.
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 Site by pressing the button.
Step 8. Give your site a name
Step 9. Choose Github as your storage provider
Step 10. Authorise Fast.io to access your Github account. It needs to be the same account you've linked with Brizy Cloud at Step 4.
Step 11. Choose the Github account you want to install Fast.io 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 12. Choose Only selected repositories, and select the Brizy Cloud project you want to connect to Fast.io. 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 13. Once you install Fast.io, you'll be redirected to your Fast.io account. Click on the repository name in the list. In my case is my-website, but yours will be different.
Step 14. Select master as the branch.
Step 15. Customize your URL and press Create Site.
Step 16. You have successfully created your website. Press Done.
Step 17. Fast.io 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 the Settings 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.
Important: If for some reason, you keep seeing this message and the website doesn't appear after a couple of minutes, just do a manual sync from your Fast.io account by pressing the Last Sync button
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 Fast.io account is connected as well. Press Disconnect if you want to cut the connection with your Fast.io account.
From this point on, any change you make in your Brizy project, will be pushed into your Github account, and from there to Fast.io.
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.
