In this video, we'll host a create-react-app generated React application to AWS using the Amplify Console. First, push your code to GitHub, then configure your deployment in the Amplify Console.

Ali Spittel: [0:00] I push my front-end code to the GitHub repository. Now, I'm going to deploy my frontend. I'll go to the Amplify Console for my application. I'll click on frontend environments. From here, I'll click GitHub. I'll choose my repository. I'll also choose the branch that I want to deploy. I'll choose my backend. I'm going to save and deploy.

[0:38] My application has successfully deployed. I'll click on the domain that was generated, but you could also add your own. When you go to my app, you can see that I can view my videos. Whenever you push new changes to your deployed branch, your application will rebuild and redeploy, so you'll have your changes live on your domain.
