This is the official Heroku buildpack for Python apps.
Recommended web frameworks include Django and Flask, among others. The recommended webserver is Gunicorn. There are no restrictions around what software can be used (as long as it's pip-installable). Web processes must bind to
$PORT, and only the HTTP protocol is permitted for incoming connections.

requirements.txt must be present at the root of your application's repository to deploy.
To specify your python version, you also need a
runtime.txt file - unless you are using the default Python runtime version.
Current default Python Runtime: Python 3.6.12
Alternatively, you can provide a
setup.py file, or a
pipenv will generate
runtime.txt at build time if one of the field
python_full_version is specified in the
requires section of your
You can specify the latest production release of this buildpack for upcoming builds of an existing application:
$ heroku buildpacks:set heroku/python
