Heroku buildpack for meteor


% heroku create --buildpack https://github.com/jordansissel/heroku-buildpack-meteor.git


Create a sample app with 'meteor'

% meteor create --example todos
todos: created.

To run your new app:
   cd todos

Put it in git.

% cd todos
% git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/a/todos/.git/
% git add .
% git commit -m "Sample todos app!"

Create your heroku app

% heroku create --buildpack https://github.com/jordansissel/heroku-buildpack-meteor.git

Or if your Heroku app already exists

% heroku buildpacks:set https://github.com/jordansissel/heroku-buildpack-meteor.git

Configure your plugins & settings

% heroku addons:create mongolab:sandbox  # optional: use whatever mongo provider you prefer
% heroku config:add MONGO_URL=<insert_value_of_MONGOLAB_URI_here>
% heroku config:add ROOT_URL=<insert_url_created_above_here>

Add session affinity so your app will still work with more than one dyno

% heroku labs:enable http-session-affinity

Optional step, if you are using a settings.json file to configure your Meteor application

% heroku config:add METEOR_SETTINGS="$(cat settings.json)"

Deploy it

% git push heroku master
