Heroku Buildpack for Node.js, gulp.js, and bower


  • Set your Heroku app's buildpack URL to https://github.com/davidmfoley/heroku-buildpack-nodejs-gulp-bower.git. To be safe, you should really fork this and use your fork's URL.
  • Run heroku labs:enable user-env-compile to enable environment variable support
  • Run heroku config:set NODE_ENV=production to set your environment to production (or any other name)
  • Add a Gulp task called heroku:production that builds your app

  • Add a single line Procfile to the root to serve the app via node:

web: node index.js

(edit to fit your case)


Inspired by Deploying a Yeoman/Angular app to Heroku.

Forked from heroku-buildpack-nodejs-gulp.

Which was forked from heroku-buildpack-nodejs.

Heavily based on heroku-buildpack-nodejs-grunt.
