Heroku-style setup possible?

I have recently come across Dokku, which offers a complete solution to running kind of a private Heroku. Since it's Linux-based and leverages Docker, it will not translate to FreeBSD in any way. However, the working principle of being able to deploy different applications with a couple of commands and update it just by pushing updates to a Git repository appeals to me.

Is there any project or tools that you know of that could be used to get a similar setup working on FreeBSD?

Nothing comes to mind. But if it's about the principle then you could leverage jail(8) for this on FreeBSD. You can create a jail(8) and set up the whole thing as single package. You would need to script some wrapper functions around it but it's certainly doable.
