Thumbor for Heroku

by gesteves


An unofficial Heroku-ready Thumbor install with WebP support.


Just press this button:


Or, follow these steps:

  1. Clone repo
  2. heroku create
  3. heroku config:set BUILDPACK_URL=
  4. heroku config:set THUMBOR_SECURITY_KEY=123456 (you should probably choose a better key)
  5. git push heroku master (the first deploy will take about 10 minutes)
  6. Done!


OpenCV isn't included in this installation because of Heroku's compiled slug size limits, so Thumbor's smart cropping isn't supported at this time.
