Lets create an app from the command line.

heroku create roppa  

Thats it. Next though we need to create a git repo and push it to heroku. Lets start with git:

git init  
git add .  
git commit -m "Initial commit"  

Next we need to create a heroku remote.

heroku create  

Lets confirm everything is up on the heroku end by running

git remote -v  

So the name that you get is important. We need to add the heroku remote before we can do anything useful:

heroku git:remote themadeupnamethatherokugivesyou  

Great, now we can go ahead and deploy what we got:

git push heroku master  

Lets set up an instance of our app:

heroku ps:scale web=1  

And see if it is all up and running:

heroku open  


Next, have a look at this article. And also setting up continuous deployment to heroku with Travis.
