Today we're releasing some exciting improvements to the Heroku beta Docker support announced 3 months ago: Automatic configuration of local containers running data stores (like Postgres, Redis and MongoDB) and support for many more languages including images for Node.js, Ruby, Go, Java, Scala, Clojure and Gradle. This helps you use local containers to run, test and deploy Heroku apps that have complex service dependencies with minimal setup and configuration.
Heroku Docker support brings to your machine the Linux containerization technology that we have operated for many years. These local Docker containers make on-boarding, development and testing of apps simpler and faster, and with Docker Compose, you can quickly spin up apps consisting of multiple containers and services. With the new tools announced today, you can use Docker to test, run and deploy Heroku apps faster and more reliably. We can’t wait to see what you build.Read more →
