Our review

What we like

CLI for managing app deploys. Can be as simple as pushing to Git which triggers a build & deploy. Uses runtime specific virtual environments e.g. virtualenv for Python, separate GOPATH for Go. Uses a Procfile to manage multiple processes. Configure environment variables, virtual hosts, and SSL. Works cross-platform. Really small codebase so it’s easy to understand.

What we don't like

Requires Python on the deploying host rather than being built as a static binary. Doesn’t support everything - currently Python, Node, Clojure, Java, Go, Ruby.
