I've never done this, so I would like to clarify some stuff.
Do we first have to deploy the
flask backend somewhere and make the
React frontend call that API instead of
If so, do we have to separately deploy the frontend after doing this?
What is the brief flow of this process?
I think this goes towards preferences and common practices, but if it was up to me I would deploy the backend first and make sure the fronted works before I deploy that too. It is not very uncommon to have a separate frontend and backend team, which results in separate deploys, but this is usually coordinated so that you can do simultaneous deploy if there are breaking changes.
