How It Works

Heroku Toolbelt

Everything you need to get started using Heroku

wget -O- https://toolbelt.heroku.com/install-ubuntu.sh | sh

What is it?

Getting started

Once installed, you'll have access to the heroku command from your command shell. Log in using the email address and password you used when creating your Heroku account:

$ heroku login
Enter your Heroku credentials.
Email: adam@example.com
Password (typing will be hidden):
Authentication successful.

You're now ready to create your first Heroku app:

$ cd ~/myapp
$ heroku create
Creating stark-fog-398... done, stack is cedar-14
http://stark-fog-398.herokuapp.com/ | https://git.heroku.com/stark-fog-398.git
Git remote heroku added

Technical details

The install script will add our repository and key to your apt sources and then have apt install the heroku package from it. The heroku command line client will be installed into /usr/local/heroku and /usr/local/heroku/bin will be added to your PATH.
