  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • dokku-dashboard

    A GUI for Dokku hosted on Dokku

    Looks very interesting, will have to give it a shot!

    I made an open source “dashboard” for dokku that tries to give you Heroku ease of use with the cost of a single server.

    Basically you run one script on the server and it deploys a dokku app which manages the deployment of additional dokku apps. Gives you GUI access to deploying new apps, changing env variables etc.

    Would love feedback from anyone looking for an easy way to deploy dokku apps regularly

  • redbeat

    RedBeat is a Celery Beat Scheduler that stores the scheduled tasks and runtime metadata in Redis.

    of course it does. Appliku out of the box provides a way to provision redis and rabbmitmq.

    I have yet to write a tutorial about celery.

    To specify processes to run you use Procfile. Specify your celery commands and enable them in Process tab in Appliku interface.

    In order to have celery beat working you should use redbeat:

    Other than that – no specific requirements. Drop me a line in contacts on our site if you need any help. Or in our Discord Community:
