Heroku API - deploy apps to Heroku from the command line
This library wraps the REST API for managing and deploying Rails apps to the Heroku platform. It can be called as a Ruby library, or invoked from the command line. Code push and pull is done through Git.
For more about Heroku see http://heroku.com.
For full documentation see http://heroku.com/docs.
Create a new Rails app and deploy it:
rails myapp && cd myapp # Create an app git init # Init git repository git add . # Add everything git commit -m Initial # Commit everything heroku create # Create your app on Heroku git push heroku master # Deploy your app on Heroku
gem install heroku
If you wish to push or pull code, you must also have a working install of Git ("apt-get install git-core" on Ubuntu or "port install git-core" on OS X), and an ssh public key ("ssh-keygen -t rsa").
The first time you run a command, such as "heroku list," you will be prompted for your Heroku username and password. If you're on a Mac, these are saved to your Keychain. Otherwise they are stored in plain text in ~/heroku/credentials for future requests.
Your public key (~/.ssh/id_[rd]sa.pub) will be uploaded to Heroku after you enter your credentials. Use heroku keys:add if you wish to upload additional keys or specify a key in a non-standard location.
