AppHouse

A hosting platform for node.js application.

Feature

  • Support all node.js applications.
  • Support multi-instance for each application.
  • Support sandbox, stand-alone instance to isolate each application.
  • Auto-restart application when it crashes.
  • Support virtual host

Installation

  1. Download AppHouse from repository:

    git clone https://cfsghost@github.com/cfsghost/AppHouse.git
    
  2. Install dependencies with NPM utility:

    npm install
    
  3. Start AppHouse as root:

    sudo node apphouse.js
    

    Note: AppHouse needs root permission to make safety sandbox with chroot

Application Deployment

There is no need modifying your application for AppHouse, just put your application on specific folder:

  1. Create a directory for new application:

    mkdir apps/myapp
    
  2. Put your application in the new place (using express to generate application for example):

    cd apps/myapp
    npm install express jade
    express
    
  3. Restart AppHouse

    Note: AppHouse will run app.js in application folder.

Application Settings

You can modify apphouse.cfg in the application directory, it's formatted using JSON(JavaScript Object Notation).

Here is options:

  • domains : set domains for application. (An application can have multiple domain)

    Example:

    domains: [ "test1.example.com", "test2.example.com" ]
    
  • instances : set number of instances for application. (Default: 1)

Management Tools

AppHouse doesn't have tools to manage applications and service, but we've created a new project to do this job:
