I’m a balena noob, with a noob question! I would like to start from scratch with a simple nodejs application running on the BalenaFin. I would like to know:
- Do I need Docker Hub to do this, or is the balena cli good enough?
- I deployed the simple-server-node application, and wanted to use that to use as a template to create my own app. How would I go about modifying that project to use as a base for my own project? How would I regenerate the package.json and the dockerfiles so that they would pick up the dependencies my project needs?
- Lastly, I am developing on a mac, for the BalenaFin. What is the recommended workflow for testing code, since a lot of it will not run locally on my Mac (I think, since its hardware dependent on GPIOs and such). Is it just to run in local mode, and push code to the BalenaFin and iterate from there on?
I apologize in advance if these are answered somewhere, but I’ve been scratching my head with no avail.
