Heroku buildpack: Heroku CLI

This is a Heroku buildpack that allows one to run the Heroku CLI in a dyno alongside application code.

This is not a replacement for the Heroku API or various clients like v3 Ruby, node or python. Some private APIs like pgbackups do require the buildpack, so this exists.


Example usage:

$ heroku config:set HEROKU_API_KEY=`heroku auth:token`

$ heroku buildpacks:add https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-cli

$ git push heroku master

remote: -----> heroku-cli app detected
remote: === Fetching and vendoring Heroku CLI into slug
remote: === Installing profile.d script
remote: === Heroku CLI installation done

$ heroku run 'heroku auth:token'

$ heroku run 'heroku pgbackups:capture SILVER -a myapp'
Running `heroku pgbackups:capture SILVER -a myapp` attached to terminal... up, run.9532

HEROKU_POSTGRESQL_SILVER_URL  ----backup--->  b003

Instead of setting HEROKU_API_KEY directly on the app as shown above, a short lived token may be passed in at run time:

heroku run "HEROKU_API_KEY=`heroku authorizations:create --expires-in 600 --short` heroku pgbackups:capture SILVER -a myapp" -a myapp
