One Click Deploy

If you want to give people the opportunity to deploy your project instantly on Scalingo, you can setup a deploy button on your GitHub project or even on your website. A scalingo.json file is required at the root of your GitHub project in order to generate the deployment page.

At the moment, only public projects hosted on GitHub are supported.

Update the Application

To update your application to the latest version of your code, you can use an archive. GitHub is giving you access to an archive with this URL:<Your account>/<Your project>/archive/refs/heads/master.tar.gz

To deploy it, you simply have to run this command

scalingo --app my-app deploy<Your account>/<Your project>/archive/refs/heads/master.tar.gz
