Heroku Compatibility

Our aim for Scalingo is to be fully compatible with Heroku. If your app works on Heroku, it will work on Scalingo. We’ve added several compatibility layers for that matter.


If a Procfile is available in the source of your app, it will be used. See the dedicated Procfile page for more informations.


Most buildpacks and their functionalities work exactly the same as on Heroku. Some buildpacks are written and maintained by our own. It’s open source. Check your GitHub account to see the whole list.

Environment variables

Because we’d like to conform as much as possible to the 12-factor principle, you can configure your app through environment variables which are injected into the context of your application.

Realtime deployment

Based on a Git hook. Just git push your code!
