Deploying Elixir applications with WeDeploy

Hi there, I’ve been working on supporting elixir/plug/phoenix applications on https://wedeploy.com/.

It creates a Docker wrapper around your application and helps you to scale it.

It has a concept of project that gives the developer a lot of functionalities out of the box:

  • Projects with multiple service.
  • Service with Dockerfile support (install a service by adding a Dockerfile).
  • Each project has its own private network, so all the services can communicate with each other internally by making a request to the service name.
  • Shell support for the container.
  • Custom domains.
  • SSL for all the domains.

And many other functionalities.

The project has free plans, so you can actually start developing/testing right away.

Here are 2 examples:


It has a deploy button and can recognize most of the projects without major configuration.

OBS, you can deploy any service that works with docker by using a Dockerfile or service image.

If you want to try it and have any question, let me know!

Great work!!
Looks like more easier than heroku to deploy.
I hope to try it soon.

About WeDeploy, how work the Free plan, the instances keep live forever or has a limit?
What are the WeDeploy advantages?(compared to heroku, for ex)

As now, we don’t put the instances to sleep. You can have multiple services in the same project with private network. You can deploy any docker as a service in a project. And many other features that you can play with.

We also offer volumes, so you are able to keep the data saved when you re-deploy your application.

We provide some services that may help with development, such as Oauth2 service/email, etc… And we just launched a Shell feature, where you can figure out stuff inside your container. https://wedeploy.com/blog/introducing-wedeploy-shell/
