What would you like to do?
Dokku reference

I host side projects on a DigitalOcean droplet running Dokku. For reference:

One-time setup of Lets Encrypt

$ ssh root@platform.natan.la sudo dokku plugin:install https://github.com/dokku/dokku-letsencrypt.git
$ ssh dokku@platform.natan.la dokku letsencrypt:cron-job --add

Creating an app

With a Dockerfile or Procfile:

$ ssh dokku@platform.natan.la apps:create $NAME
$ git remote add dokku dokku@platform.natan.la:$NAME
$ git push dokku master
$ ssh dokku@platform.natan.la config:set--no-restart $NAME DOKKU_LETSENCRYPT_EMAIL=${NAME}@natan.la
$ ssh dokku@platform.natan.la letsencrypt $NAME

Remember to map the subdomain with an A record to the droplet.

Add SSH key

$ ssh root@platform.natan.la sudo dokku ssh-tags:add github-deploy < id_ed25519.pub

Looking forward

Ideally, projects with a Dockerfile should be built "locally" (i.e., not on the droplet) since the droplet isn't particularly powerful.
