Deploy your own PaaS!
Setting up Dokku with DigitalOcean and Namecheap
..or how I made my own heroku in a few hours for $3.98.
This write-up owes a great deal to dscape's Node.js Deployments with Docker, Dokku, & Digital Ocean, the dokku project itself, and the fine folks working on dokku's issues. I took dscape's article as a starting point when trying this out but found some details lacking so I documented my own process for getting dokku up and running.
