10 things I usually do after creating rails app on heroku

  • add rediscloud add-on (free 20MB plan)
  • add sentry exception notifier with hipchat plugin notification
  • setup web dyno to start background sidekiq process
  • change Procfile to use unicorn server for huge performance improvement
  • add 'use Rack::Deflater' to to html compress pages with gzip
  • setup deploy hooks to notify hipchat about deployments
  • configure newrelic for performance monitoring
  • mount Sidekiq::Web to monitor background jobs
  • setup Zerigo DNS for custom domain handling
  • add figaro gem to handle configuration from heroku env

order is random...
