A buildpack to support Heroku deployments with webpack-rails.


Heroku Dashboard

Add a custom buildpack to your to your applications Settings tab under section Buildpacks by using the URL of this repository, instead of the short name of Heroku's own buildpacks. It goes alongside your Ruby and Node buildpacks, placed in last position.

Heroku CLI

First, check your Heroku app has the Ruby and Node buildpacks added, in the command line run:

heroku buildpacks

If they are added you should see:

your-app-1234 Buildpack
1. heroku/nodejs
2. heroku/ruby

To add the Webpack Rails buildpack in the last index, run this command:

heroku buildpacks:add --index 3 https://github.com/febeling/webpack-rails-buildpack.git


On deployment, the buildpack runs the build command bundle exec rake webpack:compile. Under default configuration that will output the compiled assets under public/webpack.
