Logux Server can be deployed to any hosting provider where Node.js is available.

Docker Image

Docker is the preferred way to deploy Logux since Docker is supported by various number of cloud providers and can be used in more complex schemas such as deployment to Kubernetes cluster.

// index.js

import { Server } from '@logux/server'
import { fileURLToPath } from 'url'
import { dirname } from 'path'

// Since we are in ESM scope, we don't have __dirname
const __filename = fileURLToPath(import.meta.url);
const __dirname = dirname(__filename);

const server = new Server(
  Server.loadOptions(process, {
    subprotocol: '1.0.0',
    supports: '1.x',
    host: '', // Note we must bind to
    root: __dirname,

// ...


Create Dockerfile. Here there is an example for Yarn Classic.

// Dockerfile

# Install dependencies only when needed
FROM node:lts-alpine AS deps

# Check to understand why libc6-compat might be needed.
RUN apk add --no-cache libc6-compat
COPY package.json yarn.lock ./
RUN yarn install --frozen-lockfile --ignore-scripts --production

# Production image, copy all the files and run Logux
FROM node:lts-alpine AS runner

ENV NODE_ENV production

RUN addgroup -g 1001 -S nodejs
RUN adduser -S logux -u 1001

# Copy all files
COPY index.js .
COPY --from=deps /app/node_modules ./node_modules
COPY --from=deps /app/package.json ./package.json

USER logux

EXPOSE 31337

CMD ["node", "index.js"]

Health Check

Logux Server provides a HTTP health check endpoint to indicate whether server is running or not:

GET /health

It is useful for monitoring or orchestrating purposes.
