Deploying a Golang Project to Heroku
The short version is it’s ridiculously easy!
I recently made a Bible reader that uses the Spritz-like Rapid Serial Visual Presentation speed reading technique. I wrote it in Go and I wanted to easily host it…Heroku to the rescue in 3 easy steps:
When you do your
heroku create instead pass it a buildpack:
The buildpack needs to know where to put your code in the image…so you make a
.godir file in your project root:
Finally, Heroku needs to know what command to run to spin up the app, which is the
git push heroku master (after you do the usual git init stuff) will do the trick for your Golang app!
