Add an ssh key to your build.

Adapted from SectorLabs/heroku-buildpack-git-submodule.


  1. Add the buildpack to your Heroku app:

    $ heroku buildpacks:add https://github.com/RasPhilCo/heroku-buildpack-ssh-key.git -i 1

    Keep in mind that the buildpack order is important. If you'll specify this buildpack after your default one (e.g. heroku/nodejs) it'll not work. See https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/using-multiple-buildpacks-for-an-app for details.

  2. Set BUILDPACK_SSH_KEY to the private SSH key you want added:

    $ heroku config:set BUILDPACK_SSH_KEY=$(cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa)

The buildpack will save the SSH key to your build at ~/.ssh/id_rsa.
