Select an Erlang version

The Erlang/OTP release version that will be used to build and run your application is now sourced from a dotfile called .preferred_otp_version. It needs to be the branch or tag name from the repository, and further, needs to be one of the versions that precompiled binaries are available for.

Currently supported OTP versions:

  • master (R17B pre)
  • master-pu (R16B pre)
  • OTP_R15B
  • OTP_R15B01
  • OTP_R15B02
  • OTP_R16B
  • OTP_R16B01
  • OTP_R16B02
  • OTP_R16B03

To select the version for your app:

$ echo OTP_R15B01 > .preferred_otp_version
$ git commit -m "Select R15B01 as preferred OTP version" .preferred_otp_version

Build your Heroku App

$ git push heroku master
