Deploying To Heroku πŸš€

Install Heroku CLI

The Heroku Command Line Interface (CLI) makes it easy to create and manage your Heroku apps directly from the terminal. It’s an essential part of using Heroku.


brew tap heroku/brew && brew install heroku


Download the appropriate installer for your Windows installation.

Ubuntu 16+

Run the following from your terminal:

sudo snap install --classic heroku

Verifying installation

To verify your CLI installation, use the heroku --version command:

heroku --version

Getting started

After you install the CLI, run the heroku login command. You’ll be prompted to enter any key to go to your web browser to complete login. The CLI will then log you in automatically.

heroku login


If you’re having issues with the CLI, first ensure that you’re using the latest version. If you’re not, try updating with heroku update.

Deploying is as easy as running the following commands:

git init
git add .
git commit -m "Initial commit"
heroku create
git push heroku master

Heroku is smart enough to detect that we are also running a node server, it will create it automatically.
