Build Status

A buildpack that adds timestamps and durations to the logs output by Heroku builds.

Usage

  1. Ensure the Heroku CLI is installed and up to date.
  2. cd <path/to/your/app>
  3. heroku buildpacks:add --index=1 edmorley/timestamps

The next time your app is built, each line of the build logs will be prefixed with timestamps, and a duration shown at the end of each buildpack's compile.

Example output

-----> Timestamp app detected
-----> Node.js app detected

Limitations

This buildpack wraps later buildpack's compile steps, by temporarily shadowing the real bash on PATH. As such, the other buildpack's compile steps must use the shebang #!/usr/bin/env bash rather than #!/bin/bash, or their log output will not be wrapped.

Alternatives

There is heroku-buildpack-timings, however it requires moving the buildpack configuration to the deprecated heroku-buildpack-multi, rather than being able to use Heroku's native multi-buildpack support.
