Shortcutting Heroku Deployments
If you are familiar with Heroku, you may know that deploying is as easy as pushing to their remote repository:
$ git push heroku
But, this can get really monotonous, especially if you're frequently pushing to a staging app (then you have to specify the branch name as well). To make things a little easier I whipped up a quick shell function to make deployments a snap. <!--more-->
We always name our Heroku remotes staging and production. To deploy to staging, for instance, just pass the branch name you want to deploy:
$ deploy dev
Here's the function. Just drop it in your
.bashrc (or whatever shell config you use).
