Install libvips to your Heroku instance, without any other dependencies.


heroku buildpacks:add https://github.com/Verumex/heroku-buildpack-libvips

Using a specific version of libvips

By default the buildpack will install the latest release of libvips to your application, but you can install a specific version of libvips by setting a LIBVIPS_VERSION configuration variable. For example:

heroku config:set LIBVIPS_VERSION=8.7.4

The buildpack will install the latest libvips if the value of LIBVIPS_VERSION is latest or the variable is omitted.


The first time you deploy, libvips will be compiled during deployment, adding minutes to the deployment time. The installation will be cached, so subsequent deploys will not recompile unless the libvips version changes.
