Does discourse support running on Heroku?


(Maxim Veksler) #1

I’ve found some resources online, mostly from 2013 Deploying Discourse to Heroku | (Un)Boxing Code regarding running discourse on Heroku.

Has there been any progress on this? Any lessons to share?

EDIT: Guys I know it’s not officially supported, I’m asking if the community has made any progress on that. Or if it’s a bad idea please share why.

Discourse depends on stuff on the SO, like ImageMagick, a pg_dump, etc to work properly. Docker is used to ensure you have an exact version of a lot of tools and dependencies and can use Discourse without worrying about compiling OpenSSL, Nginx and Ruby with a specific memory allocate library.
