Error when deploying to now

I’m trying to deploy this project → https://github.com/frontity-demos/demo-custom-post-types
to now by using npx now --prod from the root of the project

I’m getting this when trying to access to https://demo-cpt.now.sh/

The logs I get from https://vercel.com/juanmaguitar/demo-cpt/mqf119kwz are these ones

Any clues?

By looking at the logs the error seems a timeout at 10 seconds.

That WordPress took 8 seconds to respond in my local computer for this request:

https://13millonesdenaves.com/wp-json/wp/v2/posts?_embed=true

So maybe it’s just timing out.

Check if you can rise the timeout time in Now or ask the person to install the REST API Cache plugin in his/her wordpress.

Yes I think the problem is the REST API is taking too long to respond, and as that version contained this code

packages/twentytwenty-theme/src/index.js

...
const twentyTwentyTheme = {
  name: "@frontity/twentytwenty-theme",
  roots: { ... },
  state: { ... },
  actions: {
    theme: {
      ...,
      beforeSSR: async ({ actions }) => {
        await actions.source.fetch(`/comics_post/`)
      }
    },
  },
  libraries: {...}
};

export default twentyTwentyTheme;

This was causing the server to spend more than 10s to respond which makes Vercel servers to cut the connection and trigger this Task timed out error

By moving that logic to the client, the request is done from the client side so no more timed out errors on the server

packages/twentytwenty-theme/src/components/sub-header-comics.js

import React, {useState, useEffect} from "react";
import { connect, styled } from "frontity";
import Link from "./link";

const ComicsSubHeader = ({ state, actions }) => {
  const { comics_post } = state.source;
  const { headerBg } = state.theme.colors;
 
  useEffect(() => {
    async function fetchData() {
      await actions.source.fetch(`/comics_post/`)
    }
    fetchData();
  })
  
  const ComicsBar = ({comics}) => (<>
    <TitleGroup>
      <SiteTitle>
        <StyledLink link="/comics_post">Comics:</StyledLink>
      </SiteTitle>
    </TitleGroup>

    {
      comics && Object.keys(comics)
        .map(key => comics[key])
        .map(({title, link}, index) => {
          return (
            <Link key={index} link={link}>{title.rendered}</Link>
          )
        })
    }
   </>)

  return (
    <PageHeader bg={headerBg} id="site-header">
      <HeaderInner>
       { comics_post ? <ComicsBar comics={comics_post}/> : <p>Loading comics...</p>}
      </HeaderInner>
    </PageHeader>
  );
};

export default connect(ComicsSubHeader);
