Lifeboat makes it simple to deploy and manage your Xojo Web applications on a Linux server. Connect to a Linux server and Lifeboat will install the components necessary to run and manage Xojo Web apps.
Lifeboat offers many features to save developers time and energy!
Lifeboat is equipped with an efficient upload system that determines if a file has changed. Resources on the server that have not changed are duplicated rather than being re-uploaded. Once ready to deploy, the smart staging system is able to Stop 'n' Swop the web app for just seconds of downtime.
Lifeboat automates the retrieval, installation, and renewal of SSL certificates. With no cost for the developer, certificates are issued by the Let's Encrypt project. Lifeboat schedules regular renewals of all certificates on the server.
Take the headaches out of securing your web app, Lifeboat makes configuration simple popup menu selections.
Set up load balancing by increasing the running instances of your web app. Lifeboat handles the configuration files, port assignments, and system services.
Serve static files from nginx to offload stress from the Xojo Web App. This frees Web Apps to focus on logic providing a faster experience for the end user.
