Easiest Static Sites on Dokku!

I love dokku but deploying a simple HTML site is actually quite annoying, so I made dokku-pages.

1. Install

npm i -g dokku-pages

2. Deploy Dokku Site

dokku-pages deploy -g dokku@mysite.com:app -d dist --minimal

That’s it!


And by using the minimal flag you can also save a tonne of space in your dokku instance.

Deploy Command Dokku Type Image Size
deploy ... Herokuish Build Pack 1.5 GB
deploy ... --minimal Docker Build 22 MB

That’s a saving of 98.5%!

Anyway, hopefully someone else finds this useful.
