Hosting

In this section, you can learn more about different types of services that can be used for hosting your Alexa Skills and Google Actions.

Introduction

Jovo comes with off-the-shelf host integrations that make it easier for you to deploy your voice app to the provider of your choice. The hosting providers can be configured in the index.js file.

Jovo currently supports an ExpressJS Webhook (which we recommend for local prototyping), AWS Lambda, Google Cloud Functions and Azure Functions.

Deployment

You can create a ready-to-deploy bundle.zip file with either of the following commands:

This will copy the src files into a bundle folder, run a production-only npm install, and then zip it.

You can then use this file and upload it to the hosting provider of your choice.
