Deploy API

To start your own API, run yarn build:api or ./build/ --api. This will create a folder named dist/api. The API data will be in this folder. The _redirects file is used for basic URL rewriting as we are using Cloudflare pages. If you don't use it, you can delete this file. For apache2 and nginx there are rewrite examples below.

Update data

If new things are added to the game you need to run yarn build:api again, to get all the new stuff in the api.

Rewrite rules for nginx

To mimic the same behavior on nginx, you can use

location / {
  try_files $uri $uri.json $uri/ =404;

as code block.

Rewrite rules for apache2

To mimic the same behavior on apache2, you can use

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule "^/([a-z]{2}_[A-Z]{2})/*" "/$1/$2.json"
