Heroku San

Helpful stuffs for Heroku.


script/plugin install git://

Upon installation your $EDITOR will be opened for editing config/heroku.yml. You will need add the Heroku apps that you would like to attach to this project. Here is an example of an app called 'awesomeapp' with three Heroku apps attached.

  # shorthand: heroku app
  production: awesomeapp
  staging: awesomeapp-staging
  demo: awesomeapp-demo


After configuring your Heroku apps you can use a rake tasks to control the apps.

rake production deploy

A rake task with the shorthand name of each app is now available and adds that server to the list that subsequent commands will execute on. Because this list is additive, you can easily select which servers to run a command on

rake demo staging restart

A special rake task 'all' is created that causes any further commands to execute on all heroku apps.

Manipulate collaborators on all this project's apps (prompts for email address):

rake all heroku:share      
rake all sharing:unshare

Need to add remotes for each app?

rake all heroku:remotes

A full list of tasks provided:

rake all                   # Select all Heroku apps for later command
rake console               # Opens a remote console
rake deploy                # Deploys, migrates and restarts latest code.
rake heroku:apps           # Lists configured apps
rake heroku:create_config  # Creates an example configuration file
rake heroku:gems           # Generate the Heroku gems manifest from gem dependencies
rake heroku:remotes        # Add git remotes for all apps in this project
rake heroku:share          # Adds a collaborator
rake heroku:unshare        # Removes a collaborator
rake migrate               # Migrates and restarts remote servers
rake restart               # Restarts remote servers

Frequently used tasks are not namespaced, everything else lives under heroku.
