** IMPORTANT ** - For accounts that signed up with a third party log in provider such as GitHub, Bitbucket etc. you must first create a password for your account to be able to use the CLI. You can do this from the dashboard under the My Account section. Simply enter a password and save changes.
From the command prompt run the below command(s) to deploy your application
On NodeChef, the root folder of your app in the executing container, that is the $HOME directory is always "/bundle". Please take note of this if you are migrating from another platform and you have hard coded the root directory.
On NodeChef, you may use a Procfile to specify a start command for your App. An example Procfile is shown below. You must create a Procfile in the root folder of your application. If a Procfile is not included, the platform uses the default start command provided by the buildpack to start the application.
NodeChef can also detect your manifest.yml typically used for cloud foundry deployments. The command property under application will be auto detected by the platform if present and will use it as the start command.
