It may be worthwhile recommending a minimum machine size on digital ocean. I tried running a basic hello-world node app on the $5/mo box and received cryptic error messages when trying to run the npm install && npm cache clean --force step. Apparently it was due to the machine running out of memory as seen here. I increased the size of the droplet to the $10/month and deploy seems to work

@rossvz did you try increasing the swap size before trying with a larger droplet?

There's a related npm issue and the fix was to increase the swap to twice the RAM of the droplet.
DO instructions are here.
