Heroku buildpack: Heroku Toolbelt

This is a Heroku buildpack that allows one to run Heroku Toolbelt in a dyno alongside application code.

This is not a replacement for the Heroku API or various clients like v3 Ruby, v2 Ruby, node or python. Some private APIs like pgbackups do require the buildpack, so this exists.

It is meant to be used in conjunction with at least the minimal ruby as well as other buildpacks as part of a multi-buildpack.


Example usage:

$ ls -a
.buildpacks  Gemfile  Gemfile.lock  Procfile  config/  config.ru

$ heroku config:add BUILDPACK_URL=https://github.com/ddollar/heroku-buildpack-multi.git

$ heroku config:add HEROKU_TOOLBELT_API_EMAIL=my-fake-email@gmail.com

$ heroku config:add HEROKU_TOOLBELT_API_PASSWORD=`heroku auth:token`

$ cat .buildpacks

$ git push heroku master

Some PATH manipulation may be needed, expecially if you are using the heroku-buildpack-ruby-minimal solely to provide a ruby execution environment for the heroku cli gem.
