Getting Started with Node on Heroku

This is a sample Node application deployed to Heroku. It's a reasonably simple app - but a good foundation for understanding how to get the most out of the Heroku platform.

Getting Started with Node Source on GitHub

How this sample app works

  • This app was deployed to Heroku, either using Git or by using Heroku Button on the repository.
  • When Heroku received the source code, it grabbed all the dependencies in the package.json.
  • The platform then spins up a dyno, a lightweight container that provides an isolated environment in which the slug can be mounted and executed.
  • You can scale your app, manage it, and deploy over 150 add-on services, from the Dashboard or CLI.
