Dev environment

The Backengine development environment deploys a live version of your Fastify API to AWS in one click.
This means you can interact with it on the web as well as make changes in the chat and have them synced to your GitHub repo.
You can also create and manage database migrations.
The development environment takes a minute or two to get started and has to be started every time you want to make changes to your application. It will time out after 30 minutes of inactivity.
You should not use the dev environment in production. It cannot handle heavy loads and will time out after inactivity.
Instead, you should deploy your Fastify API server elsewhere - we like Render.
Let us know if you'd like to see a prod deploy option inside Backengine or a Render integration.
