procfile v0.1.1

A simple CLI tool for ensuring that a given node script runs continuously (i.e. forever)


A Procfile parser for node.js.


Installing npm (node package manager)

  curl | sh

Installing node-procfile

  [sudo] npm install procfile


There are two simple methods when using node-procfile: .parse() and .stringify(). If you are familiar with using the native JSON methods in Javascript, there is nothing new about the API.

  var fs = require('fs'),
      procfile = require('procfile');
  var data = fs.readFileSync('/path/to/procfile').toString(),
      proc = procfile.parse(data);

This outputs the results of the procfile parse:

    web: {
      command: 'node',
      options: [ 'myapp.js', '-p', '80', '--some-option' ]
    worker: {
      command: 'node',
      options: [ 'myworker.js', '--other-option' ]
