1. Heroku deployment tips

1.1. they have amazingly well-written docs and tutorials

1.1.1. use them

1.2. "No Procfile detected, using the default web server"

1.2.1. use thin

1.3. for troubleshooting

1.3.1. heroku run rails console

1.3.2. heroku logs --tail

1.3.3. I keep both of those open in new iTerm tabs

1.4. create the app with a name you can remember

1.4.1. heroku create my-chosen-name

1.4.2. or google "heroku rename"

1.5. DB stuff

1.5.1. in database.yml delete the production: settings heroku makes its own anyway

1.5.2. what if your production DB crashes? look for a PG backup add-on

1.5.3. heroku pg:pull DATABASE_URL my-chosen-name_development

1.5.4. heroku pg:push my-chosen-name_development DATABASE_URL

1.6. if your CSS/JS changes work in development but not on heroku

1.6.1. check if "rake assets:precompile" is getting run during deployment

1.6.2. if not, you may have done it manually and there's a manifest.json file in your /assets folder delete it (or gitignore it)

1.7. if something goes wrong, you can easily roll back your heroku app

1.7.1. log in to heroku and go to your app

1.7.2. go to history

1.8. shortcuts

1.8.1. In my ~/.bash_profile I added alias gh='git push heroku master' alias ghh='git push heroku master && heroku run rake db:migrate'
