Moving RailsConf apps to

Monday, January 26, 2009

Three applications from our RailsConf talk where deployed using I just realized last week that they moved the apps that where deployed on their closed beta environment to their new free offering environment. will be the place for their commercial Rails hosting offering. No need to say that I am waiting eagerly to try it out. The impact was that the application they moved to herokugarden required a migration to be run. But besides that the move was straight forward. A couple of things to know which are described more in details on their transition page but to migrate an existing app to the garden if followed these three steps:

1. 'sudo gem install herokugarden'
2. From your application folder 'herokugarden git:transition'
3. If you encounter an Application Failure doing a 'git push', you need to fix your .git/config file as follows:

[remote "heroku"]
url =
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/heroku/*


[remote "origin"]
url =
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

You can download the new apps here:
