Web Launchers

Launch from the Browser

As much as we love flyctl, web launchers are cool too! Here are the launchers that work straight from the browser:

  • Turboku for cloning a Heroku app to
  • Jupyter to deploy your own Jupyter notebook server on
  • Livebook to deploy your own Livebook server on, with a 1GB persistent storage volume

These apps are each configured on launch to fit into our free usage allowance. Of course, if you have other apps on, your total fleet may no longer fit within this allowance.

Once an app is launched, you can use flyctl to manage it as you would with other apps.

Our launchers are built using Elixir and Phoenix LiveView. We’ve talked a bit about our Turboku Heroku launcher on our blog.
