Heroku buildpack for loading ENVKEY environment variables

Original sources:


Add the buildpack

  1. On the settings page for your app, e.g. https://dashboard.heroku.com/apps/MY-APP/settings, find the Buildpacks section.
  2. Click on the 'Add buildpack' button.
  3. Provide the URL for this repository: https://github.com/LambdaSchoolEngineering/heroku-buildpack-envkey.git
  4. Click 'Save Changes'
  5. Verify that this build pack is used very first. Later build packs will surely require the environment variables.

Set the environment variable

While still on the settings page, add an environment variable ENVKEY=such-secrets that is defined using the EnvKey app.
