Use this buildpack if you want to execute binaries on Heroku. APP is the name of your heroku app. For some commands you need to append "-a APP" or change the directory to the local folder of your app with
$ cd /path/to/folder
Create Heroku app with this buildpack and clone it:
$ heroku create APP --buildpack https://github.com/ph3nx/heroku-binary-buildpack.git $ heroku git:clone APP
Create a bin folder in your app and set the $PATH variable in Heroku:
$ mkdir APP/bin $ cd APP $ heroku config:set PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/app/bin
Your App is now ready to use. Put binary files in your the /bin directory. Here is an example of an executable that will run on 64bit linux machine:
$ echo -e "#\!/usr/bin/env bash\n echo hello world" > ./bin/program $ echo "program: bin/program" > Procfile $ chmod +x ./bin/program
Test the program locally:
$ ./bin/program hello world
Push the app to Heroku and run our executable:
$ git add -A; git commit -am 'init' $ git push heroku master $ heroku run program Running `program` attached to terminal... up, run.8663 hello world
You could also add this buildpack to an exesting heroku app:
$ heroku config:set BUILDPACK_URL=https://github.com/ph3nx/heroku-binary-buildpack.git -a APP Setting config vars and restarting cmds... done, v3 BUILDPACK_URL: https://github.com/ph3nx/heroku-binary-buildpack.git
You will need to make sure that a 64bit linux machine can execute the binary.
Copy the snippet above into CLI.
