Today we’re announcing the general availability of GitHub integration for Heroku. When enabled, GitHub pushes are deployed immediately to linked Heroku apps. This is a big step forward for people working on apps with source managed on GitHub and deployed to Heroku. The integration has been in beta in Heroku Dashboard for a while, and we’ve seen great adoption and positive feedback.
When a GitHub repo is connected to a Heroku app, you can either manually deploy branches from the repo, or you can configure a particular branch to auto-deploy to the app on every GitHub push. With auto-deploys enabled, you no longer have to maintain a separate
heroku Git remote: Simply push to GitHub and changes are automatically deployed on Heroku.
