Itโ€™s easy to host your Embedchain-powered apps and APIs on railway.

Follow the instructions given below to deploy your first application quickly:

Step-1: Create RAG app

Install embedchain
pip install embedchain

Create a full stack app using Embedchain CLI

To use your hosted embedchain RAG app, you can easily set up a FastAPI server that can be used anywhere. To easily set up a FastAPI server, check out Get started with Full stack page.

Hosting this server on railway is super easy!

Step-2: Set up your project

With Docker

You can create a Dockerfile in the root of the project, with all the instructions. However, this method is sometimes slower in deployment.

Without Docker

By default, Railway uses Python 3.7. Embedchain requires the python version to be >3.9 in order to install.

To fix this, create a .python-version file in the root directory of your project and specify the correct version


You also need to create a requirements.txt file to specify the requirements.


Step-3: Deploy to Railway ๐Ÿš€

  1. Go to and create an account.
  2. Create a project by clicking on the โ€œStart a new projectโ€ button

With Github

Select Empty Project or Deploy from Github Repo.

You should be all set!

Without Github

You can also use the railway CLI to deploy your apps from the terminal, if you donโ€™t want to connect a git repository.

To do this, just run this command in your terminal

Install and set up railway CLI
npm i -g @railway/cli
railway login
railway link [projectID]

Finally, run railway up to deploy your app.
