I couldn’t find any clear guides to launching Ruby-Sinatra apps on Heroku so I decided to write one.

The first step you’ll need to take is create a Heroku account. That’s fairly straight-forward so I wont get into it.

Once you’ve done that you will want to go into command line and install a bundler and heroku. First the bundler:

gem install bundler.

Then install heroku:

brew install heroku/brew/heroku

You will then be prompted to log into Heroku by the command-line. Once you’ve done that you should create a new Heroku repository.

heroku create

Your Heroku Project will the be given a random name — Adj + Geographical-Feature. You should also be able to see it if you go to >> https://dashboard.heroku.com/apps. …
