This tip falls under the KISS principle. I recently started using the Heroku service to run some Rails websites. After making changes and committing them to your local Git repository, those changes are pushed to Heroku using the command
git push heroku master. Since I'm likely to forget and since it's four words I created a file called
script/push with that command. Here are the steps.
- Create a file called script/push with one line:
git push heroku master.
chmod +x script/push
git add script/push.
git commit -m "scripting the Heroku push".
That's it. Just
script/push whenever you need to deploy.
