Subject: [gentoo-user] Why we no Heroku?
Date: Tue, 19 Jan 2016 22:44:57
1 I wanted to start fiddling with Heroku <>, so
2 naturally the first thing I tried was
4 |$ eix heroku |
6 …but alas there was nothing. So I poked around their site to see how one
7 might install their client manually and the instructions
8 <>
9 are the typically horrifying:
11 |# wget -qO- | sh |
13 The thing is, a quick look at what that || sh| is actually doing isn’t
14 all that terrifying. Basically it untars a bunch of ruby scripts into a
15 directory and then puts the path to the |heroku| “binary” (a ruby
16 script) in your $PATH. Surely, this is a good candidate for an ebuild, yes?
18 So I thought I’d ask: am I missing something, or is this really as easy
19 as it looks? Is this just waiting for someone to write an ebuild?
20 Bugzilla has nothing
21 <> about it, but I
22 can’t believe that Heroku use hasn’t come up before in Gentoo land.
23 Surely there must be some web developers / ops people who would like to
24 use Heroku stuff from Gentoo…. right?
