Phusion Passenger‘s Node.js support was originally an Enterprise-only feature. Since the introduction of Node.js support, we’ve received awesome feedback from Enterprise customers. Having said that, we are strong open source supporters at heart, and we believe that it’s time to give back to the community.

Today, we are pleased to announce that we are open sourcing Node.js support. Everybody can freely use, modify and distribute this, as in freedom and as in beer.

For those who are not familiar with Phusion Passenger: it is a fast and robust web server and application server for Ruby, Python, Node.js and Meteor. Passenger takes a lot of complexity out of deploying web apps, and adds powerful enterprise-grade features that are useful in production. High-profile companies such as Apple, New York Times, AirBnB, Juniper, American Express, etc are already using it, as well as over 350.000 websites.

The source code for the Node.js support is already available on Github. We’ve also written a detailed Phusion Passenger + Node.js tutorial.

More information about Node.js support will follow soon, so please keep an eye on this blog for the announcement, or subscribe to our newsletter using the form below.
