How to deploy a public service

Quix enables you to deploy public-facing web pages and APIs.

This how-to will help to explain the features and options and ensure projects containing public facing web pages and APIs are successful.

Code Samples

In our Code Samples you can find our Web API Template which demonstrates how to create a API using Node.

There are also examples dashboard and web/UI examples using Dash, Streamlit and Angular.

Code Samples

The code

When running locally it is usual to see local addresses like and localhost, however, these cannot be used and will result in routing errors.

Please ensure your service is hosted on and uses port 80.

Examples of this for various languages are:

  • Node.js which can be used to host Dash/Plotly apps and any JavaScript-based websites:

    app.run_server(debug=False, host="", port=80)
  • For Streamlit (just set the port in

    sys.argv = ["streamlit", "run", "", "--server.port=80"]

Deploy a public service

To access your public facing service or web site you must enable Public Access at deployment time.

  1. Switch on Public Access.

  2. If needed adjust the URL prefix to suit your needs.
