Selfhosted Heroku / node.js app management dashboard

I'm getting more and more interested in running my own server and I want to run a bunch of small node.js sites on it. Is there an easy way go manage node apps, domains and deployments? think the ease of adding sites to heroku.

I've tried running my own dokku server, however dokku seems full of bugs and issues where two simple websites seem to take +20gb of space.

How do you run you node.js apps and experiments on a server?

What bugs are you having with Dokku? Built app images should be ~1GB, at least half of which will be the base OS and therefore shared across both of your apps.

Feel free to join us on our slack (slack.gliderlabs.com) to walk through any issues you're seeing :)

Disclosure: I am the Dokku maintainer.

Hi,

I can pull up some more detailed information soon as I’m without computer this week. Though one thing that just broke it for me was letsencrypt breaking when you have 2 main domains github.com/dokku/dokku-letsencrypt...

Hey Stef
I don't know if this is still a question but there's a software called coolify. It's awesome to host your applications (NodeJS and many other types) with databases, services and auto deployment from GitHub.
Site: coolify.io/

🌱 DEV runs on 100% open source code known as Forem.
