Easily create upstart services for your node daemons
Made for Ubuntu. Sorry, everyone else.
So you made your cool Node.js HTTP server thing, but how do you run it as a proper service when your system boots?
upstarter to the rescue!
$ npm install -g upstarter
In the root of your project, run:
$ sudo upstarter
upstarter will ask you some stuff. When the survey is complete, you'll have
a service conf in
/etc/init. Then you can:
$ sudo service my-service start
For more info, try the Upstart cookbook.
