I have failed via googling, reading the docs, and poking through the various commands of the built-in nodester-cli help to figure out how to do something I expect is incredibly simple.

How do you change your app's appfile?

Sorry, I know this is a super-basic function and it's probably very obvious to everyone how it's done, but I'd suggest writing it down somewhere.

As flawed as it may seem, nodester app create <name> <start file> is the only way to do it right now. I can assure you this will be fixed in V2. If create doesn't complete you might have to delete it first.

So, another dumb question... does app delete remove your git repo?

For anyone using express.js, which seems to be common, the default start file (app.js) has a different name than nodester's default (server.js). So, I assume a lot of people have run into this.

Just in case, I backed it up, then issued a delete... but it doesn't work - times out. Error if I try to re-create as well.

Can you confirm this issue is still occurring? I applied a fix

Deleting works. Recreating works.
