Note: This README has been updated for the Heroku cedar stack.

Using Heroku, you can deploy a Fat Free CRM instance within minutes.


Set up a Fat Free CRM Instance on Heroku

git clone /path/to/ffcrm
cd /path/to/ffcrm
heroku login

Optional: when you deploy to Heroku, it injects some plugins to help with asset generation and logging. You will receive lots of DEPRECATION WARNING: You have Rails 2.3-style plugins in vendor/plugins messages. To fix this, add 'rails_12factor', group: :production to your Gemfile and run bundle install. Don’t forget to commit the change before pushing to heroku. (See this article for more details)

Push code to heroku:

heroku create
heroku config:add HEROKU=true
git push heroku master
heroku run rake db:migrate
heroku run rake ffcrm:demo:load (if you want demo data)
heroku run rake ffcrm:setup:admin USERNAME=admin PASSWORD=admin
heroku ps:scale web=1
heroku open

Other useful heroku commands

heroku restart - restart the webservers
heroku ps - is the webserver running
heroku logs --ps web.1 --tail   - tail the log of a specific webserver process
git push heroku your-branch-name:master - to push a different branch to the webserver
