What is CapRover?
CapRover is an extremely easy to use app/database deployment & web server manager, PaaS, for your NodeJS, Python, PHP, ASP.NET, Ruby, MySQL, MongoDB, Postgres, WordPress (and etc...) applications!
Seriously! Who should care about CapRover?
A [web] developer who does not like spending hours and days setting up a server, build tools, sending code to server, build it, get an SSL certificate, install it, update nginx over and over again. A developer who uses expensive services like Heroku, Microsoft Azure and etc. And is interested in reducing their cost by 4x (Heroku charges 25$/month for their 1gb instance, the same server is 5$ on vultr!!) Someone who prefers to write more of showResults(getUserList()) and not much of $ apt-get install libstdc++6 > /dev/null A developer who likes installing MySQL, MongoDB and etc on their server by selecting from a dropdown and clicking on install! How much server/docker/linux knowledge is required to set up a CapRover server? Answer: Knowledge of Copy & Paste!! Head over to "Getting Started" for information on what to copy & paste ;-)
? CLI for automation and scripting ? Web GUI for ease of access and convenience ? No lock-in! Remove CapRover and your apps keep working! ? Docker Swarm under the hood for containerization and clustering ? Nginx (fully customizable template) under the hood for load-balancing ? Let's Encrypt under the hood for free SSL (HTTPS)

I can host multiple web apps and create a new one in under 5minutes... with HTTPS, basic-auth and stats dashboard. I even integrated it in my GitHub deloyment action as target, which works like a charm.
Very easy to work with
After trying to get wiki.js working for 2 weeks using directadmin's nodejs setup feature, it's just super refreshing to have a service that actually works without fuss. I just bought a cheap vps, installed docker, installed CapRover, and it just worked.
Most user-friendly Docker container manager. CapRover configures HTTPS (with Let's Encrypt) and subdomain routing (with nginx) for you, making it simple to publish and maintain websites and apps. Supports Docker Swarm for scaling.
