A lot of things have changed in the Buffalo ecosystem since my last post on how to deploy to Heroku from Gitlab.

Indeed, everything has changed since I posted how to deploy from gitlab repo into Heroku with the birth of the buffalo-heroku plugin. In this post I will try and describe how to use it to deploy your buffalo app to Heroku.


First thing you need to install (or ensure you have) is buffalo-plugins plugin. If you’re on buffalo v0.14.6 or higher you’re all set. If you’re on an older version you should:

  1. Move to your project root folder
  2. Download and install buffalo-plugins plugin
$ GO111MODULE=off go get -u github.com/gobuffalo/buffalo-plugins
