@hnascx What you’ve seen by reading other threads is correct.
Netlify don’t provide runtime node.js based hosting.
Pulling and running your project shows that the /dist folder ends up contaning a /dist/server.js file.
That file runs an express server to handle the request/response, executing mustache at request time.
So your options on Netlify would be to:
Re-engineer so that your site builds to static
Re-engineer so that your site builds pages on demand via Serverless Functions
A combination of 1 & 2
Alternatively you could host the project somewhere else that supports the kind of server instance you’re trying to run.
