Whenever I bootstrap an app, I follow the same steps for Heroku. Create a staging and production app. Assign them to a pipeline. Provision the same 5 free tier addons per app. Deploy each app. All told, that usually adds up to 20-30 minutes for each new project. I’ve moved this code into a dev-ops gem, HerokuOps. This first version is extremely opiniated, but flexibility, refactors and even more features will come soon.
gem "heroku_ops", group: :development
Thanks for checking it out, and let me know if there are any useful things you’d like to see added to it.
If you enjoy having free time and the peace of mind that a professional is on your side, then you’d love to have me work on your project.
