Getting started after deploying NodeGame

This app will setup the basic nodeGame server with an ultimatum game.

After creating the droplet, ssh once into your droplet to automatically initialize the nodeGame server.

You can then upload your own game into the server's games/ directory and restart the server. Instructions will be shown at startup and saved into your home directory.

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the NodeGame 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB NodeGame Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"nodegame-18-04"}' \
