✌️ How to setup

Make sure you have .nc.config.js file in the project root.

Content of .nc.config.js file is assumed as the following structure. It is an array of supported providers.

  1. name : Provider identifier, this can be used to identify the plugin at a glance.
  2. tag : Tag name that will be used to load the given provider internally.
  3. plugin : Plugin module

This config file can contain array of objects for all providers and all will be loaded. Supported values for name : aws, azure, alicloud, digitalocean, google

const nodeCloudAwsPlugin = require("nodecloud-aws-plugin");
const providers = [
    name: "aws",
    tag: "aws",
    plugin: nodeCloudAwsPlugin
module.exports = providers;

Supported providers

📣 Usage

const nodeCloud = require("nodecloud");
const optionsProvider = {
  overrideProviders: false
const ncProviders = nodeCloud.getProviders(optionsProvider);
const options = {
  apiVersion: "2016-11-15"
const params = {
  ImageId: "ami-10fd7020", // amzn-ami-2011.09.1.x86_64-ebs
  InstanceType: "t1.micro",
  KeyName: "nodeCloud", // key name of Key pair
  MinCount: 1,
  MaxCount: 1
const instanceParams = {
  Key: "Name",
  Value: "Node Cloud demo"
const ec2 =;
  .createInstance(params, instanceParams)
  .then(res => {
    console.log(`All done ! ${res}`);
  .catch(err => {
    console.log(`Oops something happened ${err}`);

Override providers

NodeCloud officialy supports AWS, GCP, Azure, DigitalOcean and AliCloud. If you want to use a community driven plugin override the providers list as follows.

const nodeCloud = require("nodecloud");
const options = {
  overrideProviders: true
const ncProviders = nodeCloud.getProviders(options);
