Note: Web apps now have better and more readable links, allowing you to share specific screens as a URL. To learn more about screen sharing, see the section in the article below. If you would like to use this, please contact Fliplet support so we can enable it for your app.

Publishing your Fliplet App to the Web

After you’ve created and tested your Fliplet app, you can choose to deploy it to the supported publishing channels, including the Web. This will create a URL for the app, as well as specific screens you can share publicly.

How to Publish your Fliplet app to the Web

Opening the app you want to publish in Studio and click the Publish tab on the top right. Click the Select button to the right of the Web channel. 

Then, on the popup window, click Publish. The popup window then refreshes and displays a link to the app’s URL. To go to the app, simply click on the link.

From this same window, you can copy the URL and unpublish it. You can also show the embed code that will allow you to embed the app on another web page. 

Once the app is published to the web, the channel displays a Published text. There is also a Manage settings button which, when clicked, displays the same details about the app that we discussed earlier.

 

After you have published your app, you will also have access to share individual screens. Click the settings icon next to a screen in Edit mode and you will see this dropdown:

Copy Shareable Link will add the link to your clipboard so you can paste it in an email or wherever you’d like. It will be formatted like this: ‘https://apps.fliplet.com/appname/screenname-1q1n’

Why Publish your Fliplet App to the Web

By publishing your app to the web, anyone with the link can access your app from web browsers on any computer, without downloading an app to their devices. If you have security settings, users will still need to verify or login.
