The buildpack will detect your repository as Go if it contains a .go file.

The buildpack adds a heroku build constraint, to enable heroku-specific code. See the App Engine build constraints article for more.

Hacking on this Buildpack

To change this buildpack, fork it on GitHub. Push changes to your fork, then create a test app with --buildpack YOUR_GITHUB_GIT_URL and push to it. If you already have an existing app you may use heroku config:add BUILDPACK_URL=YOUR_GITHUB_GIT_URL instead of --buildpack.
