Launching a Node.js app

This tutorial will get your Node.js app running on Section’s edge compute platform.

At the end of this tutorial you will have:

  • A website running as a subdomain at section.dev
  • Free and automatically renewing SSL certificates for your website
  • Used the sectionctl CLI tool to deploy changes to your app

If you have just signed up to Section, please check your emails to confirm your account, and set a password. You won’t be able to complete this tutorial without having a password set.

Let’s start by setting up sectionctl, the Section CLI tool.

Node.js Edge App Hosting is a new Section product, so it may have some rough edges. If you see something that needs improvement, we’d love to hear your feedback.
