Starting today, you can now deploy your Node.js 8 applications to App Engine standard environment. App Engine is a fully-managed application platform that lets you deploy web and mobile applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure.
One of the primary focuses for App Engine’s Node.js support is making the experience comfortable and familiar for developers. To do this, Google has chosen to place no restrictions on the Node.js packages that developers can use.
[…] the new Node.js runtime has no language or API restrictions. You can use your favorite Node.js modules, including native ones, by simply declaring your npm dependencies in your package.json, and App Engine installs them in the cloud after deploying your app.
