A node module acting as a server gateway to other web apps - designed with minimal footprint and modular architecture in mind.

Uses the cluster library from the Node.js API to reach maximum performance in a multi-core environment. Can redirect by proxy to websites served by express.js or nginx and even to other IPs.

Features

  • Multi-core support
  • Redirect to other ports and/or IPs
  • Multi-app environment using express vhosts
  • Nginx integration
  • Server monitoring using Monit *

* in the AMI version

Install

To include drone to an existing app/setup simply install the node module:

npm install drone-server

or clone directly from github:

git clone git://github.com/makesites/drone.git

If you're starting fresh you may also consider installing the AWS AMI, although you may need to update the software manually to bring it to its latest version...

Usage

Update the config/ folder (using the sample files) with the supported domain names and run the server.js file:

node server.js
