Heroku is an easy-to-use platform for hosting applications.
Sadly, it's also very costly and lacks a lot of features compared to larger cloud platforms (such as AWS).
Stacktape allows you to deploy almost any infrastructure components, including containers, batch jobs, SQL and NoSQL databases, API Gateways, Load balancers, file storage, CDN & more.
With Heroku, you get simplicity for a significantly higher infrastructure costs. Stacktape gives you the simplicity without the absurd infrastructure bills.
Stacktape supports zero-config, heavily optimized parallel builds with advanced caching.
Stacktape comes with a VS code editor extension to further improve developer experience with validation, autocompletion and built-in documentation.
Stacktape allows you to manage infrastructure using simple and declarative configuration file. You can easily deploy as many environments (stages) as you want.
Stacktape development studio is a graphical user interface. It's a convenient way to manage and test your applications and infrastructure.
Client SDKs (for web, mobile and more) can be used within your application to help with most common tasks (authenticating users, uploading files, etc.).
Being a new product, Stacktape doesn't have a large community yet.
Stacktape currently supports zero-config builds for less languages and frameworks.
