React frontend (nodejs) and Ruby on Rails (w/ postgres db) backend on a single droplet?

Is it possible to do a full stack React + Rails (w/ postgresql database) on a single $5/month droplet or do I need to have two separate droplets for frontend & backend?

Hi there @GiancarloZ,

Yes, I believe that it should be ok to have both on 1 Droplet when starting. In case that your project grows, then you could plan to scale up with multiple Droplets.
