Could JXCore Be An Awesome Deployment Tool?

JXCore allows you to turn Node.JS applications into stand-alone executables. One possible use case would be to package up your entire application in an executable and deploy it to production servers, skipping the usual dance with git and npm. If performance is good, this could make for an interesting deployment tool. Deploy by Dropbox? Yup, you could! It's on my list of things to try with a hobby project.


  1. How is dance with dropbox and restarting executable on servers is better then dances with git/npm?

  2. Great question! Imagine this: Dropbox syncs the updated binary automatically — no dance. And configure a watch process on the server to automatically restart when the app binary changes. No dance whatsoever!
