Node.js Question

Deploying Node.js Apps on Heroku

I'm a beginner. I was tryng to deploy an "app" on Heroku but it doesn't work when going to https://peaceful-coast-7293.herokuapp.com/. It works fine with

heroku local
.
Really don't know what else to check.

This is what I've got in my logs:

2015-12-28T10:56:44.862230+00:00 heroku[router]: at=error code=H10 desc="App crashed" method=GET path="/" host=peaceful-coast-7293.herokuapp.com request_id=c0994f20-ef28-4cad-95ba-f861a89d698d fwd="93.33.20.213" dyno= connect= service= status=503 bytes=
2015-12-28T10:56:45.457317+00:00 heroku[router]: at=error code=H10 desc="App crashed" method=GET path="/favicon.ico" host=peaceful-coast-7293.herokuapp.com request_id=a3286f8e-7051-419d-9e3d-ccb2090659c0 fwd="93.33.20.213" dyno= connect= service= status=503 bytes=


I also get those npm:

My app.js file:

var router = require('./router.js');
var port = process.env.PORT || 3000;

//Create a web server
var http = require('http');
http.createServer(function (request, response) {
router.home(request, response);
}).listen(port);
console.log('Server running');


Procfile

web: node app.js


package.jsom

{
"name": "lorem_ipsum",
"version": "1.0.0",
"description": "Lorem Ipsum Generator",
"main": "app.js",
"scripts": {
"test": "echo \"Error: no test specified\" && exit 1"
},

"license": "MIT",
"keywords": [

"engines": {

}
}

Answer

You need to add

"start": "node app.js"

to the "scripts" section of your package.json.
