Self-hosted Heroku alternative.

Infrastructure automation
Our review

What we like

Provides an orchestration layer and web UI for installing and managing self-hosted services. Provision databases and common apps like Ghost, MinIO & Plausible Analytics. Includes pre-packaged setup for common frameworks (NextJS, Deno, Laravel) and languages (PHP, Python, Rust). Can also run generic Docker containers. Open source.

What we don't like

Runs on a single server, which is great for self-hosting non-critical apps, but you then have to deal with server admin, updates, and scaling it yourself.
