Deploying to Heroku
Once we have debugged the Flask app and we are happy with it, we are ready to deploy it to Heroku.
To do this, you should set up your repo as follows:
Clone the repo:
$ git clone https://git.charlesreid1.com/charlesreid1/github-heroku-attack-rabbits.git
The repo has the following structure:
github-heroku-attack-rabbits/ LICENSE README.md mkdocs.yml docs/ index.md ... mkdocs-material/ ...
Now, inside the repo, clone the repo again,
but this time clone the
$ cd github-heroku-attack-rabbits/ $ git clone -b heroku-pages https://git.charlesreid1.com/charlesreid1/github-heroku-attack-rabbits.git site

Now have Heroku add the proper git remote address:
$ heroku git:remote -a <heroku-app-name>
Now you're ready to deploy to Heroku.
Deploy to Heroku
Double check your app is ready, then deploy:
$ git push heroku heroku-pages:master
This will push the local branch

This should begin a pre-commit hook where Heroku
compiles your Python app. You should get the green
light, if you tested your app locally and everything
was good to go.
