  • PM2

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

    Project mention: AI for Web Devs: Deploying Your AI App to Production | | 2024-02-07

    There are plenty of ways to accomplish this: Docker, Kubernetes, Pulumis, etc., but I don’t like to add too much complexity. So for a basic app, I like to use PM2, a Node.js process manager with great features, including the ability to run our app in the background.


    Monitor for any changes in your node.js application and automatically restart the server - perfect for development

    Project mention: Devlog Week 3: 4 - 10 December 2023 | /r/IceTheCoder | 2023-12-10

    Then, install nodemon (in the VSCode terminal also), which, to my understanding, automatically refreshes the server you'll be sending requests to, whenever you make a change. Using plain node.js, you'd have to manually stop and restart the server after every change.

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.

    System Monitoring and Process Management via Alfred

    Project mention: A standalone Activity Monitor alternative that isn't on the menu bar and shows stats for individual apps and groups processes by app? | /r/macapps | 2023-07-03

    Probably not what you are looking for, but on the off chance it may be of interest: I recently created an Alfred workflow that's basically an activity monitor.
