What is dokku?

Dokku is an open-source platform-as-a-service (PaaS). If you’re familiar with Heroku, you can consider Dokku a private Heroku that you manage. In fact, in the Dokku GitHub repo, it’s called a “Docker powered mini-Heroku.” Dokku installs Docker and then uses it to manage deployments of applications.

You can control Dokku through simple CLI commands or through a web interface using third-party libraries. A DigitalOcean account makes using Dokku even easier. Simply visit the Dokku page in the DigitalOcean marketplace and click the “Create Dokku Droplet” button. Then configure the Droplet you want your Dokku instance to run on and click the “Create Droplet” button. Once your instance is provisioned, you’ll have to configure it.

Visit the IP address or domain of your droplet to set up your Dokku instance. If you don’t want to use the default settings, click the “Finish Setup” button. Setting up Dokku only takes a few seconds, and you’re ready to create your first Dokku application.
