Use Cases

Since the Deploy on Railway button generates a deterministic and reproducible deployment, it is an excellent way to share your project with the public and let others clone your project.

Use cases include the following:

  • README files
  • Tutorials and guides
  • Getting Started docs
  • Websites and social profiles

The button is also a way to take advantage of the Railway Open Source Kickback program, which provides open source maintainers a financial incentive to maintain templates on Railway.
