Dokku – small PaaS implementation

Dokku is a Docker powered mini-Heroku. It’s billed as “The smallest PaaS implementation you’ve ever seen”.

It helps you build and manage the lifecycle of applications.

Dokku is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Install Dokku on any hardware. Use it on inexpensive cloud providers.
  • Easy Git deploys – push Heroku-compatible applications to it via Git. They’ll build using Heroku buildpacks and then run in isolated containers. The end result is your own, single-host version of Heroku.
  • Extensible platform – write Dokku plugins in any language. Share them online with others, and extend those already available. Dokku’s simple core is easy to hack and add the features you need to get your job done.
