node-js-getting-started

A barebones Node.js app using Express 4.

This application supports the Getting Started on Heroku with Node.js article - check it out.

Running Locally

Make sure you have Node.js and the Heroku CLI installed.

$ git clone https://github.com/heroku/node-js-getting-started.git # or clone your own fork
$ cd node-js-getting-started
$ npm install
$ npm start

Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.

Deploying to Heroku

Using resources for this example app counts towards your usage. Delete your app and database as soon as you are done experimenting to control costs.

By default, apps use Eco dynos if you are subscribed to Eco. Otherwise, it defaults to Basic dynos. The Eco dynos plan is shared across all Eco dynos in your account and is recommended if you plan on deploying many small apps to Heroku. Learn more about our low-cost plans here.

Eligible students can apply for platform credits through our new Heroku for GitHub Students program.
