Docker powered mini-Heroku. The smallest PaaS implementation you've ever seen.

To install the latest stable release, you can run the following commands as a user that has access to sudo:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dokku/dokku/v0.7.2/bootstrap.sh
sudo DOKKU_TAG=v0.7.2 bash bootstrap.sh

You can then proceed to the ip address or domain name associated with your server to complete the web-based installation.

If you wish for a more unattended installation method, see these docs.
