Hi @ItsRicmor,

Yes, it’s entirely possible to add as many applications on a droplet as you wish. To setup both applications, you’ll first need to install NodeJS on your droplet. Luckily, DigitalOcean has a pretty good article on how to do so -

As soon as you have finished the article, you can turn your attention to the React Tutorials sections again on DigitalOcean - . It has tons of article on setting and configuring such applications to doing a lot more complex stuff.

Setting up the Spring Book Kotlin Api would most probably require some sort of a WebService like Nginx, for that, you’ll need to follow this tutorial -
