dokkufy server

dokkufy server <hostname> <username> <domain> --version <version>

Installs Dokku on server at IP or Hostname <hostname>, using the <username> account to install the software.

It also sets up the app on domain <domain>, resulting in all apps being served as a subdomain of that domain.

Optionally this takes a <version> to specify the Dokku tag.

dokkufy plugin:list

dokkufy plugin:list

Lists all plugins as listed on the Dokku wiki. Only supports plugins that follow the standard install procedure.

dokkufy plugin:install

dokkufy plugin:install <plugin_name_or_id> [<hostname> <username>]

Installs a Dokku plugin either by name or ID (as received by dokkufy plugin:list) on a server. Only supports the standard install procedure. Check the plugins wiki for any additional install notes.

dokkufy plugin:uninstall

dokkufy plugin:uninstall <plugin_name_or_id> [<hostname> <username>]

Uninstalls a Dokku plugin either by name or ID (as received by dokkufy plugin:list) on a server. Simply performs a delete of the folder. Server instances already deployed with this plugin will need to be redeployed.

dokkufy app

dokkufy app <git_repo> [OR <hostname> <dokku_username>]

Adds a dokku remote to the local git repository for an app. Also writes this remote to a .dokkurc file.

dokkufy app:clear

dokkufy app:clear

Removes any dokku remotes for the local git repository and deletes the .dokkurc file.
