Yelp API

Copy env.sample to .env in this directory and fill in your API keys. The .env file is ignored by version control.

$ cp env.sample .env

Install Heroku Config and add your keys to Heroku environment

$ heroku login
Password (typing will be hidden): 
Authentication successful.

$ heroku plugins:install git://
Installing heroku-config... done

Config in .env written to hello-yelp-igsa
Note that heroku config:push will overwrite the environment in your Heroku application, if you have one set up!



Let's try a local build first.

$ foreman start

This command should set up a server at localhost:5000, where you can play with the app and test out queries (its functionality is quite basic).

With your local version working, push to heroku!

$ git push heroku master

Don't forget to push your changes to GitHub. Heroku recommends git services external to itself for canonical version control.

$ git push origin master
