heroku-buildpack-redis

A buildpack that installs redis.

Use

The desired version of redis is specified via the redis-version file.

See test-redis-app for an example.

Example

$ git clone https://github.com/dpiddy/test-redis-app.git
$ cd test-redis-app
$ cat redis-version
2.6
$ heroku create -b https://github.com/dpiddy/heroku-buildpack-redis.git
$ git push heroku master
$ heroku scale redis=1
$ heroku logs -t

Building redis

redis-2.6.tgz used by the buildpack was built with anvil using this command:

$ anvil build \
    http://download.redis.io/releases/redis-2.6.16.tar.gz \
    -b https://gist.github.com/dpiddy/5b5425d57396135f59b2/raw/gistfile1.txt

Other versions should be buildable just by changing the redis tarball URL.
