👋🏼 @kshnkvn,

Support for Python + Node.js is coming soon. Currently you would either have to use a Dockerfile, or install Node.js yourself as part of the build command (as non-root) which is not ideal. We’re working on making this available natively so that you wouldn’t need to make any changes to your Python app.

Update: this is now supported.
