The Running Node.JS Application on a Nodester
I am still working on putting up a full application for the tutorial. Also I will try the same application on Nodejitsu, CloudFoundry and Heroku.
The following are the basic steps for working with Nodester. It is very similiar to all the other command-line PaaS interfaces. I am running this on
Windows, but it will work in most environments.
npm install nodester-cli -g
nodester user setup <username> <password>
nodester user setkey c:.sshid_rsa.pub
nodester app create <appname>
nodester app init <appname>
nodester npm install express
nodester npm install mongoose
nodester npm install socket.io
git add .
git commit -am "Ready to deploy"
git push nodester master
nodester app info
nodester app stop|start|restart
nodester app logs
For nodester they push to master for Nodester to get a new build.
Log into your Application List Page on the Administration Site for Nodester and you will see your newly added Application. Nodester has a good help system that will be useful to you while learning. The git commands are standard GIT which makes using all the cloud systems pretty similiar.
After uploading, I check the logs for errors:
nodester app logs
nodester info Showing logs for: rollerderby
New PID: 18884
Running node v-0.8.1
:: nodester ::
App listening on port 19885
nodester info ok!
I used there out of the box example and added a connection to my test mongo db database at MongoLab.
