A barebones Rails app, which can easily be deployed to Heroku.
This application supports the Getting Started on Heroku with Ruby article - check it out.
Make sure you have Ruby installed. Also, install the Heroku CLI (formerly known as the Heroku Toolbelt).
$ git clone email@example.com:heroku/ruby-getting-started.git $ cd ruby-getting-started $ bundle install $ bundle exec rake db:create db:migrate $ heroku local
Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.
Deploying to Heroku
By default, apps use Eco dynos if you are subscribed to Eco. Otherwise, it defaults to Basic dynos. The Eco dynos plan is shared across all Eco dynos in your account and is recommended if you plan on deploying many small apps to Heroku. Learn more about our low-cost plans here.

$ heroku create $ git push heroku main $ heroku run rake db:migrate $ heroku open
The app can be run and tested using the Heroku Docker CLI plugin.
Make sure the plugin is installed:
heroku plugins:install heroku-docker
Configure Docker and Docker Compose:
And run the app locally:
docker-compose up web
The app will now be available on the Docker daemon IP on port 8080.
To work with the local database and do migrations, you can open a shell:
docker-compose run shell bundle exec rake db:migrate
You can also use Docker to release to Heroku:
heroku create heroku docker:release heroku open
