Learn more about how to use Nodion to deploy your application.
The goal of this quick start is to get you up and running with Nodion and have a real application deployed.
This guide will cover the following steps:
- Account creation
- Application creation
- Application deployment
To get started you need an account. Please click here or on the button at the top right to create one. To prevent abuse of our platform every account that wants to create resources has to have a verified email address, a mailing address and mobile phone number. We are a company based in Germany and will handle your data with utmost care. You don't have to add any payment details to get started, every account starts with free credits which can be used for our Sandbox plans.
After creating your account you are able to connect existing Git repositories to Nodion. For example your source code hosted on Github. This can be done by clicking on Integrations -> Add Integration. Our system will sync the names of your repositories and branches with the connected Git services. We've prepared sample applications that can be forked and used to try out our platform.
Add a new application by clicking on Applications -> Add Application. Please type in a name and select the integration, repository and branch of the application you want to deploy on Nodion. Select the smallest instance type, the desired region and click on
Our sample applications are based on Buildpacks, that means you have to select a Buildpack Builder. Head over to the Settings tab of the just created application and select a Buildpack Builder, for example the Paketo one. After submitting your changes you can head back to the Overview tab and click the "Deploy now" button. This will start the deployment process immediately.
That's it! You have a simple application deployed and are ready-to-go. But there is more to our platform, you can learn more about Buildpacks. Maybe you already have a Dockerfile you want to deploy or you want to learn more about Scaling, Metrics, Logs, how to handle Environment Variables or adding Custom Domains.
We also have tutorials for all major languages that our platform supports through Buildpacks.
