Getting started with Metabase on Scalingo

Metabase is an open source tool to query your company data without writing SQL queries.

This tutorial will show you how to deploy a Metabase instance on Scalingo in under 5 minutes.

Metabase Deployment

We published a repository metabase-scalingo on GitHub to help you deploy Metabase on Scalingo. Deploying a Metabase instance is now at a click range:

Deploy

Deployment by Cloning the Repository

You first need to create an application on Scalingo. Let’s say its name is my-app.

Then, clone our repository and add the Scalingo git remote:

$ git clone https://github.com/Scalingo/metabase-scalingo
$ cd metabase-scalingo
$ git remote add scalingo git@ssh.osc-fr1.scalingo.com:my-app.git

We now need to slightly configure the Scalingo application. First, this application needs to use the multi-buildpacks. Add the BUILDPACK_URL environment variable:

$ scalingo --app my-name env-set BUILDPACK_URL=https://github.com/Scalingo/multi-buildpack.git

You also need to add a PostgreSQL addon to your application. A “Starter 512” plan would be enough.

Last, deploy your application with:

$ git push scalingo master
