Hi Herbfargus,

Thanks a lot for the explanations :)

To launch a node.js application at startup, I use the amazing project pm2:


Simply run these commands:

# Install globally pm2
sudo npm install pm2 -g
# Launch virtual gamepads application with pm2
sudo pm2 start main.js
# Configure pm2 to launch at startup
sudo pm2 startup
# Save the current state of pm2 
# to reload all current applications at startup
sudo pm2 save

Normally it should launch the application again at startup. PM2 will also relaunch automatically the application in case of crash.

I highly recommand it for all node.js projects !

I hope it’s OK for you now ?
