node package manager


realtime instant node.js deployment with one command

𝚫 now

The fastest way to deploy a Node.JS service.

In any directory with a package.json, run:

$ now

every time you run it, you get a new URL (unless nothing's changed).

  1. package.json must contain a start task inside scripts. If a now script is defined, that's used instead.
  2. Only files that would be included in npm publish are synchronized. package.json files field, .npmignore and .gitignore are supported.
  3. If a build step is needed, specify a build task in scripts. If now-build is defined, that's used instead.
$ npm install -g now
