Ask IH: where/how do you deploy your apps/site?

Emanuele Ricci @StErMi

Usually, I have a frontend application (Vue) with a backend app (express/nodejs with API consumed by the Vue app) connected to a MongoDB (shared across apps).

Nowadays, how do you deploy your apps and where do you deploy it? I would like something that allows me to deploy apps automatically and I've only to pay for the resources I'm asking for.

I had a server on digitalocean but I don't know if there's something better. I would like to avoid the usual waste of time to configure a server, have a custom deployment script and so on.

    You might take a look at Firebase. Their pricing model fits what you are looking for. You might be able to hook in to express via cloud functions but I'm not knowledgable in this area. I think you'd have to forgo Mongo to use Firebase's document store.
