MEAN Stack App Part 20: Deploy App Using Heroku

Aaron , Pittsburgh Pa – Worst – I can express what a disaster this company is. Just spent the whole day trying to get site back up. #Justhost customer service continually lied and told me it would be up in 5 hours. Already paying for malware removal and then they talked me into paying an extra $500. It only made things worse. Spoke with guy named Nicholas – rude, uncooperative, arrogant, and was unable to help. Told me to call back to talk to another company. This guy is a level 2 tech!! Earlier tech didn’t help either. No follow thru. Company is in cahoots with Sitelock, another deceptive thieving organization that does nothing to help situation. BEWARE!!!STAY FAR AWAY FROM BOTH ORGANIZATIONS!!

    Really appreciate for uploading this video. Just have a question on how can I use my own domain that I purchased instead of heroku's?

    I don't know what happened but I tried to push my files to git hub via the CLI and I lost all the files in the main "app" folder.

    Is there any way that we can run this app from a desktop shortcut/icon preferably for windows 10?

    Can you make a tutorial about intergrating NewRelic to this so it can stop the idling hours? There's very little tutorial about it

    You don't need to commit your node_modules folder as it gets rebuilt on heroku during the build process. add a folder called .gitignore file. This config file contains the a list of files, configurations and other junk that you don't want to include when pushing and commit code to version control. If you don't want to worry about creating your own you can start the process by copying the template .gitignore file that is created by github when creating a repo there vs doing on git locally. This will also make your push and pulls much quicker as they don't have to pull down all your modules.

    I love how years ago it was easier, and before that it was even easier, copy paste done, then we created node to make things easier and now its ten times harder, instead of copying and pasting your files onto a different computer, now not even two years later you need to move very specific dependencies from the dev dependencies up to regular dependencies, put post install, write instructions for that, write an engine section, look up what versions of node you used, manually type those in, because upgrading has to be impossible. move your server, which since it has dependencies now you can't use that and have to restructure and create an entirely new one, structure the server in a very specific way and god knows what the fuck else. I hate this so much, this isnt something as a developer I should have to be wasting my time with, and what have I gained with all that effort, literally nothing, a system that will be replaced with something ten times more complicated tomorrow, that I have to learn about for no reason, when I could be making the application better.
