UPDATE : This is quite obsolete since Cedar Stack on Heroku allows you to declare distinct task for each worker you start :
web: bundle exec rails server -p $PORT scheduler: bundle exec rake resque:scheduler worker: bundle exec rake jobs:work
RemoteScheduler allows you to drive distant Heroku app workers, scheduling their tasks, using Resque Scheduler on Heroku.
Works on bambo-ree-1.8.7 and bamboo-mri-1.9.2
All you need is to schedule your tasks in resque_schedule.yml, to deploy and define these ENV vars (using heroku config ...) :
RESQUEWEB_LOGIN (to connect to the resque-web utility)
REMOTE_REDIS_URL (the Redis To Go url of your main app)
Then, you're ok to run one (and only one) worker which will act as the scheduler for your distant main app.
I extracted this from the coming soon release of SubMate which needs very frequent tasks that Heroku's default cron can't handle.
