  • 5 Basic Things you need to know about managing a Linux server
    2 projects | | 29 Jun 2021
    PHP is great, but not for all of us. What about running Node.js or Python apps? You might be tempted to use proxy_pass but it won't handle the app startup and crashes for us. Luckily we have a better option: Phusion Passenger.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing and Phusion Passenger you can also consider the following projects:

PM2 - Node.js Production Process Manager with a built-in Load Balancer.


Puma - A Ruby/Rack web server built for parallelism

forever - A simple CLI tool for ensuring that a given script runs continuously (i.e. forever)

chokidar - Minimal and efficient cross-platform file watching library

supervisor - Supervisor process control system for Unix (supervisord)

Thin - A very fast & simple Ruby web server

naught - Zero downtime deployment for your Node.js server using builtin cluster API

fastify - Fast and low overhead web framework, for Node.js

electronmon - 🖥 run, watch, and restart electron apps using magic
