Breaking Heroku Deployments (for good reasons) 07 August 2013

  • Do you have an app?
  • Do you have an app that you don't want to deploy over?
  • Do you wish there was some way to stop drunk you from shipping to production?

You should use my broken build pack! (Now with over 100% extra nonfunctionality!)


$ heroku config:set BUILDPACK_URL=

Now when you push to heroku, it won't work.

$ git push heroku master

Simply configure, sit back, relax, and embrace the broken nature of the world around you.
