Heroku Backup Command

Plugin that provides the backup command for the heroku gem. This allows you to automate the process of backing up bundles to S3.


NOTE: This plugin depends on aws-s3 being installed.

To install:

$ heroku plugins:install backup


This plugin requires two environment variables:



Another option would be storing the keys on Heroku, and retrieving them from there. Then this plugin would work from any collaborator's machine. If you want to implement this, please fork it!
