It's one of the most requested features in Ploi: official NodeJS support. And we're excited to share to you that this is now available for everyone!

The roadmap in question should already tell you that this was a very populair requested feature: https://roadmap.ploi.io/b/panel-requests/add-nodejs-support/
We've made the best out of this feature already, there's no need to do any complicated configuration. It's literally a push on the button the spawn a NodeJS server with the service you desire. Currently PM2 and Supervisor are available to be used as your preferred driver to run your NodeJS server with.

It's as easy as creating a new site and while doing that select the project type NodeJS, of course, you can also do this after you’ve created a site. Ploi will then make sure the proper NGINX configuration is used to proxy your NodeJS server through NGINX. After this, you're more than welcome to add custom configuration to your NGINX host without losing this.

Next install your repository (we've got a demo repository here if you want to try: https://github.com/ploi-deploy/nodejs-example) and make sure packages are installed (you can now also select `npm install` when installing your repository). After this, head over to the NodeJS tab, adjust settings to your likings and spawn the NodeJS server!
