A script in time …
Sometimes I come across a task that sufficiently annoys me that I have to write up a quick script to restore the calm. One such task was to smooth over a bump I regularly get when I use Heroku on a project.
I tend to end up with at least two apps: myapp.herokuapp.com for production and myapp-staging.herokuapp.com for staging. This means that I now have to include
--app <app_name> after every command, which is annoying, especially when you’ve named your app supercalifragilisticexpialidocious or similar.
There are quite a few scripts available on the Googles to deal with this and also, I’m assuming, a Heroku standard way. However, I decided to roll my own.
