Noob question. I've created an app using React Polaris and create-react-app and would like to host it. Should I just host it on digital ocean and use that url? When its hosted will the embeded SDK work? If someone could clear this up for me it would be greatly appreciated.

The embedded app SDK works whether your app is hosted or running locally (behind a tunnel). It's just another computer sitting on the internet at the end of the day.

I prefer Heroku, so maybe you could look at this: https://dev.to/smithmanny/deploy-your-react-app-to-heroku-2b6f

Hi Alex, would you happen to be aware of any guides walking through how to publish it on Digital Ocean?

Thanks!
