Node.js v8.3.0 has just been released! One key new feature is the Turbofan introduced in V8 6.0. The new execution pipeline has been optimized for modern JavaScript. The Node.js 8.3.0 release note is available at https://nodejs.org/en/blog/release/v8.3.0/

Node.js v8.3.0 is now our new default version, if you don't specify any required Node.js version in your package.json.

We just released a first version of our opeNode API at: https://api.openode.io/! The API allows you to manage and get information on your instances.

For instance, the webhook action can be used to automatically git push-n-deploy your instance by providing the API url to your github/bitbucket webhooks.

You can now collaborate with your collegues by inviting them on opeNode.

We added a new feature to invite your collaborators. In the admin panel, under the website actions, you can click on collaborators and manage your collaborators.

When you invite a collaborator, he will be invited to join your project by email and he will then have access to the project so that the project can be shared among multiple members.

We developed a new automatic detection of your package.json and server files, so that it is more efficient to import your project(s) :-].

As soon as you import your project, we scan (in background) your project and look for a package.json file and set it as your package.json file. Then, we look for the "start" parameter in your package.json file.


  "name": "my-openode-example",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "node my-pretty-server.js"

From this package.json file, we will automatically find and set your server file to my-pretty-server.js.

Happy Node.jsing!

We did some significant improvements on the deployment process:

  • Support for more archive types: .zip, .rar, .7z, .Z, .tar.gz, .tgz, .tar.bz2, .tbz2, .tar.Z, .tZ, .tar.lzo, .tzo, .tar.xz, .txz, .tar.7z, .t7z, .tar, .gz, .bz, .bz2
  • Verification of the HTTP server port during the deployment: you can now know live if you have set up properly process.env.PORT.
  • Verification of the package.json file. It is now required.

If you find any issue please let us know!
