Heroku Buildpack for Kibana

This buildpack downloads and installs Kibana into a Heroku app slug. It is a fork of issueapp/heroku-buildpack-kibana, with some light customization for use as a one-click Heroku Button app.

For a one-click deploy of Kibana on Heroku, see omc/heroku-kibana.


Tested against Kibana 4.1.2.


See our other repo at https://github.com/omc/heroku-kibana for a one-click deploy of Kibana on Heroku.

Or, to use as a standalone buildpack:

# Create a new project with the --buildpack option
$ heroku create --buildpack https://github.com/omc/heroku-buildpack-kibana

# ...Or update an existing project with heroku buildpacks:set
$ heroku buildpacks:set https://github.com/omc/heroku-buildpack-kibana

# Let the buildpack know where to find Kibana
$ heroku config:set DOWNLOAD_URL="https://download.elastic.co/kibana/kibana/kibana-4.1.2-linux-x64.tar.gz"

# Let Kibana know where to find Elasticsearch
$ heroku config:set ELASTICSEARCH_URL="https://kibanauser:kibanapass@host.region.bonsai.io"

# Create a Procfile to run the Kibana web server
$ cat Procfile
web: kibana --port $PORT

# Push the above to trigger a deploy
$ git push heroku master

# Verify and profit!
$ heroku open
