Start-up Code Resource for deployd

Current Version

This is a custom deployd resource type that allows you to define a script that will be run on startup.

It is useful for setting up Pub/sub job processors, to schedule things that should be run regularly, to ensure that mongodb indexes are created, etc.


npm install dpd-startup --save


yarn add dpd-startup

See Installing Modules for details.


Use dpd-dashboard to add a Start-up Module. The name doesn't matter and you can have as many as you need.

You can write your startup code inside the Index event. The code will be run on startup. You will have access to the dpd object like in any other event script.

Important note:

The code will also be re-run every time you save the script if you're using dpd-dashboard.

So, make sure your startup logic is valid for this purpose. Otherwise, restart your project manually every time, or do not edit the script using dpd-dashboard.

The order the startup scripts are ran in is not guaranteed. If you need a particular order, and would like to split your startup script into smaller parts, you can combine this with dpd-codemodule and write your logic inside Code Resources, which you can then use from your startup module.
