Heroku Buildpack for Octave

Heroku buildpack for Octave that works on the new Cedar 14 stack.

Note: the buildpack also installs the GNU Compiler Collection 64-bit libraries because the default version that comes on a Heroku dyno does not include a Fortran compiler (which Octave requires).

How to use

This buildpack can be used in conjunction with other supported language stacks on Heroku by using the heroku-buildpack-multi buildpack.

$ heroku config:add BUILDPACK_URL=https://github.com/ddollar/heroku-buildpack-multi.git
$ cat .buildpacks

Octave Console

You can also run Octave in the console as follows:

$ heroku run octave

I'm not sure why you would want to do this, but you can, and the guy that wrote the R buildpack has this feature so I figured it might be useful.


Currently on me. If you have any interest in helping please email me.
