I am building an application that uses a Rails API with a Vue.js front-end. I’d like to have the Rails API hosted in one Dokku droplet and accessible from http://api.mydomain.com, and have the Vue.js front-end hosted in a second Dokku droplet accessible from http://www.mydomain.com. Is this setup possible in Digital Ocean/Dokku? Please provide any articles that may be of help. Thanks!

Hey friend,

This should definitely be possible. You should be able to set in your DNS for the root domain and/or the www subdomain to go to the IP of one droplet, and the API subdomain to go to the other.
