This buildpack is meant to be used with the Heroku Buildpack for Elixir. When deploying Phoenix apps to Heroku, static assets will need to be compiled. This buildpack sees to it that static assets are compiled and that a corresponding asset manifest is generated.
mix phoenix.serverwill be run
bower.jsonis in your app's root path
# Set the buildpack for your Heroku app heroku buildpacks:set https://github.com/gjaldon/phoenix-static-buildpack # Add this buildpack after the Elixir buildpack heroku buildpacks:add --index 1 https://github.com/HashNuke/heroku-buildpack-elixir
phoenix_static_buildpack.config file in your app's root dir if you want to override the defaults. The file's syntax is bash.
If you don't specify a config option, then the default option from the buildpack's
phoenix_static_buildpack.config file will be used.
Here's a full config file with all available options:
# We can set the version of Node to use for the app here node_version=0.12.4 # We can set the version of NPM to use for the app here npm_version=2.10.1 # Add the config vars you want to be exported here config_vars_to_export=(DATABASE_URL) # We can change the filename for the compile script with this option compile="compile"
By default, Phoenix uses
brunch and recommends you to use
mix phoenix.digest in production. For that, we have a default
compile shell script which gets run after building dependencies and
just before finalizing the build. The
compile file looks like this:
info "Building Phoenix static assets" brunch build --production mix phoenix.digest
To customize your app's compile hook, just add a
compile file to your app's root directory.
compile is just a shell script, so you can use any valid
bash code. Keep in mind you'll have
access to your
mix. This means that if you're using a Node build tool other than
brunch, you can just do something like:
# app_root/compile gulp build:dist mix phoenix.digest
compile overrides the default one. :)
Copy the snippet above into CLI.
