github-heroku-pusher does pretty much what sounds like it does. It takes a github repo, grabs the latest version and pushes it to heroku.
In order for the pusher to run, we need to get these four variables:
- HEROKU_API_KEY (Found at the bottom of the account page)
- GITHUB_REPO (Example: https://github.com/ajlai/Test)
- HEROKU_REPO (Example: firstname.lastname@example.org:smooth-sword-2980.git)
Next, we can set up the app in Heroku:
git clone git://github.com/ajlai/github-heroku-pusher.git cd github-heroku-pusher heroku create --stack cedar git push heroku master
Now, set up the variables from earlier under Heroku's config vars:
Finally, set up the post-receive url to point to YOUR_APP/post-receive (Example: http://severe-dusk-3039.herokuapp.com/post-receive)
Try pushing a commit to master on your github repo, and watch Heroku redeploy the code!
