EventCatalog exports your catalog to static HTML which means you can deploy your application anywhere you want!

To build your Catalog you will need to run:

npm run build

This will output two directories

  • out - Your EventCatalog as Static HTML (recommended to use)
  • .next - If you wish to deploy to NextJS (NextJS outputs this by default, recommended to use the out directory)

If you intend to deploy your catalog not in root of your domain (e.g. you need to set basePath: '/my-catalog' property in the eventcatalog.config.js otherwise the output will not look like you would expect.

Hosting Options

You can host EventCatalog anywhere you want, as it's just static content.

Here are some guides and places you can host static content

Host with Docker

EventCatalog comes with a DockerFile, you can build the image and deploy the container. The container exposes ports 3000.

To build the docker container you need to run:

# Builds the container
docker build . eventcatalog

# Runs the container locally
docker run -p 3000:3000 -it eventcatalog
