Dokku and Docker for Impatient Rubyists

August 19 2014

What is Docker?

It’s a way to put your linux applications into their own containers on the same machine or across a network. It’s not the same thing as a VM. It’s far more efficient and your friends will be envious of your dev ops skills.

What is Dokku?

It’s a poor man’s Heroku written in about 100 lines of BASH. You can run it yourself on a $5
digital ocean instance. Unlike Heroku, you have more control over things. After all, it’s your machine. Want to run a background worker? Need an extra cron job? No problem.
