Our NGINX Boilerplate gives you a barebones environment for web services. NGINX is a lightweight and powerful webserver, which can be used to serve applications, as well as function as a reverse proxy, load balancer or HTTP cache.


To create a new project with nginx:

  • Log in to the Divio Cloud Control Panel. 
  • Select Add new Project, with the following options:
  • Creation: New
  • Python: No Python
  • Boilerplate: NGINX

Local Development

Setting up a project locally is very easy and fast, the only commands you need to run a project are:

  • divio project setup PROJECT_NAME 
  • divio project run PROJECT_NAME 

You can install the Divio CLI by downloading the Divio App.


For further information on using NGINX please consult the official NGINX documentation.
