Now that GitHub is connected, it's time to create a repository where your Blueprint code is going to be stored.
- Select your GitHub account
Use the dropdown list or start typing to filter available GitHub accounts.
If you don't see the account for which you'd like to create a repository on the list, click on "Manage GitHub app" on the top of the screen:
- Name your repository
Depending on which Blueprint you chose, Atlas will suggest a repository name for you. The name of your repository should be unique within your GitHub account - If it's not, you'll see an error after clicking the "Create" button on the bottom of the page.
- Select the visibility of your repository
If you want to limit your repository's visibility to only people that can access your GitHub account, make sure to check the "Private repository" checkbox.
- Select a region for your Atlas app. The region you select will be used for all of your app's environments (production/staging/etc.) and cannot be changed once your Atlas application has been deployed.
That's it! Track the initial build progress on the next screen that loads automatically.
A link to visit your live frontend using a temporary domain will appear under
Atlas URL when the deploy completes.
