Heroku buildpack: Git

This is a Heroku buildpack which downloads and builds specified version of git.


Example usage:

$ heroku create --stack cedar --buildpack https://github.com/abhishekmunie/heroku-buildpack-git.git

$ git push heroku master
-----> Heroku receiving push
-----> Fetching custom buildpack... cloning with git...done
-----> Git app detected
-----> Downloading Git ... done
-----> Installing Git...
-----> Discovering process types

The buildpack will detect your app as Git if it has the file _git.cfg in the root.

This can be used in combination with ddollar/heroku-buildpack-multi in order to support more complex use-cases where you need a specific version of git.

Configuring Buildpack

Buildpack reads its configuration from _git.cfg



To modify this buildpack, fork it on Github. Push up changes to your fork, then create a test app with --buildpack <your-github-url> and push to it.
