Getting set up on Heroku
Provision your project
heroku apps:create <city>-councilmatic
Promote your desired database. Running
heroku pg will list your added
databases. Choose the one you want to use. If there are none there, add
heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql. Note that if you want to
use location queries and such, you must at least install the Yanari DB:
heroku addons:add heroku-postgresql:standard-yanari.
heroku pg:promote HEROKU_POSTGRESQL_<color>_URL
If you do want to use location functionality, enable PostGIS.
heroku pg:psql CREATE EXTENSION postgis; \q
