Getting Started with Dokku on DigitalOcean
Dokku is a heroku-like tool that allows you to
deploy complex apps by simply pushing with git. It supports heroku buildpacks directly,
so you can
- Create Dokku instance on DO
- Set up database
- Add a new app
- Configure said app
- Firewall? Security?
A special message
This is where the affiliate links live, but hear me out! I use these
two services every day, and I wouldn't recommend them if I wasn't
- Purveyors of fine (and inexpensive) virtual servers. I use DigitalOcean to host
and a few others; it's my go-to host. Use this
for a $10 credit.
- I've been living in AirBnbs for over a year now, and plan to for many more.
If you've ever wanted to try them out, you can get a $25 discount from
