I'm starting to learn about making games on the web and am using this agario clone on GitHub to help.

I've succeeded in setting up a version on Heroku using the instructions from here. I've never used Heroku before, so I'm a little lost on a few more things. The link from the instructions allowed the files to be directly transferred from GitHub. However, I can't seem to view them at all from Heroku - I can only run the client with 'Open app' (which works).

What exactly happened when I deployed the app? Did Heroku immediately start running the server code and will it continue to indefinitely do so even if no clients are connected?

Heroku's gear will have started up and started running your node.js instance. Node.Js is designed to run continuously, but depending on your pricing plan, heroku may shut down the 'Gear'(your server instance) if nothing changes in 30 minutes.
