You can run your react app in S3 bucket and host your static website from AWS S3 bucket.


  1. JavaScript knowledge

  2. React knowledge

  3. Node.js should be installed

  4. AWS account

To make things working for this task, we need React app. To install React in your system, Node.js should be installed. if it is not installed I would recommend you to install.

You can follow this link to install Node.js click-here

Once installed please run node --version and npm --version. once you got the version number it means installation is successful.

Now we need to install react in our system directory. I have chosen D: drive, you can choose your directory name. Run this command npx create-react-app application-name.

Once your project created, run cd application-name

Run npm start : this command will run your app in browser.

Do your changes in react application according to your needs and test it. After that run this command in your application directory npm run build. You will get your build ready inside your application-name directory. Folder name will be build

Our project is ready for deployment on S3 bucket. Now login to your AWS account and go to S3 service.

Create bucket.

Uncheck Block public access.

Click on Create bucket. Now your bucket name will be visible on S3 dashboard.

Click on your bucket name and upload all your files from React project build folder. Once uploaded all files, go to dashboard, go to bucket name, select all files in your bucket and make your objects public.

Click on your bucket name and go to properties. Copy and paste Amazon Resource Number (ARN) in notepad, we will use it later in bucket policy.

Scroll down and go to Static website hosting. Click on Edit.
