The RedHat OpenShift folks are making it super-simple to deploy a Lift app.

The Escalante project provides an amazingly simple way to deploy a Lift app.

Basically, just write your Lift app with a Maven POM file, git-push the app to OpenShift and in a few minutes, the app is live.

How to do it

I built a simple Lift/Escalante app.

Basically, I followed the instructions and then I added the code for a simple chat app.

OpenShift and Escalante just work with Lift. Thanks for Galder for creating Escalante and lowering to barriers to entry for Lift.
