One of the struggles developers face when moving to Node.js is the lack of best practices for automated deployment of Node applications. The challenges are many-fold – packaging and dependency management, single step deploy, and start/re-start without bringing down the house! While best practices for Node application deployment are starting to develop, tool support for these practices are still poor, and get worse the further you get from developer workstations. StrongLoop’s customers regularly ask for recommendations on how they should deploy, and until now we haven’t had good answers for them when it comes to tool supported workflows.
