Question

Does DigitalOcean allow adding additional buildpacks to a (node) App? If yes - how?

Heroku allows adding buildpacks (and ordering) to a node app, but could not find similar in DigitalOcean. Specifically, heroku allows me to add buildpacks under Setting tab:

Question to community, is this possible in digitalocean?

Thank you.

Hi Sri, thank you for confirming.

@here in community, our app is DigitalOcean node app, we need to have FFMEG for video conversion. Since buildpacks is not available, is there anyway to have FFMPEG install? I saw this article and wonder if I can do the same (or some variation) to the DigitalOcean Node app if I can login and install manually: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-convert-videos-with-ffmpeg-on-centos-6

Please advice. Thanks.

Hello @iamchris ,

At this point, only one buildpack at a time is supported on App Platform. We have this on our roadmap, but there is no confined date as of now.
