The Shipa Developer Hub

Welcome to the Shipa developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Shipa as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    Changelog


For Shipa, a platform is a well-defined pack with installed dependencies for a language or framework that a group of applications will need in order to run.

Platforms are defined as Dockerfiles and Shipa already have a number of pre-built ones, listed bellow:

  • Go
  • Java
  • Node.js
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Static
  • .Net

The platforms above come pre-installed in Shipa. With that, users have the opportunity to enable them either at Shipa's install or add them to your server using the platform-add command in Shipa.

For example, to install the Python platform from Shipa's platforms repository, you have to call:

$ shipa platform add python

If you have a platform (runtime) requirement that is currently not supported by the ones above, new platforms can be added to Shipa. See Creating Platforms for more information.
