Details on one-click install apps?

Where do I find details on the applications we can add in droplet creation? I’m interested specifically in the ‘node-v0.10.30 on Ubuntu 14.04’ app. How was this built? How can I upgraded it when node 0.12 arrives?

Many of the one-click install apps have tutorials associated with them. Check out this tutorial series which lists them all.

The Node app doesn’t actually have one though. It is a fairly straight forward Node install. The simplest way to upgrade Node is to use the n module. To use the latest stable release us:

npm cache clean -f
npm install -g n
n stable

To use the latest unstable release, you can run:

n latest
