Provision preview environments.

Our review

What we like

CLI to provision preview environments based on your Docker Compose config. Runs in your own cloud (AWS Lightsail, GCP, Azure). Expose apps to the web or securely access via a tunnel. Run in CI e.g. for E2E tests. Auto configures HTTPs. Supports plugins for responding to events e.g. posting environment URLs to a GitHub PR. Open source.

What we don't like

Tunneling uses the Authorization header, which may break your services if you also rely on it e.g. for auth or WebSockets. Assumes you use Docker Compose.
