Heroku has always made it easy for you to extend your apps with add-ons. Starting today, partners can access the Platform API to build a more secure and cohesive developer experience between add-ons and Heroku.

Advancing the Add-on User Experience

Several add-ons are already using the new Platform API for Partners. Adept Scale, a long-time add-on in our marketplace that provides automated scaling of Heroku dynos, has updated its integration to offer a stronger security stance, with properly scoped access to each app it is added to. Existing customer integrations have been updated as of Friday May 12th. All new installs of Adept Scale will use the more secure, scoped Platform API.

Today we are proud to announce that Heroku CI, a low-configuration test runner for unit and browser testing that is tightly integrated with Heroku Pipelines, is now in General Availability.

Tests@2x

To build software with optimal feature release speed and quality, continuous integration (CI) is a popular and best practice, and is an essential part of a complete continuous delivery (CD) practice. As we have done for builds, deployments, and CD, Heroku CI dramatically improves the ease, experience, and function of CI. Now your energy can go into your apps, not your process.

With today's addition of Heroku CI, Heroku now offers a complete CI/CD solution for developers in all of our officially...


This is the second of a two-part transcript from a recent interview with Tom Dale of Ember.js. In part one we discussed the history and direction of the Ember.js project. Continuing the discussion of the future for Ember.js, this post includes the rest of the interview, primarily focused on the Glimmer.js project. Some of the questions were omitted from these transcriptions for brevity, so we’re also releasing the nearly hour long audio file of the entire interview. Enjoy!

Jonan: Let’s talk about Glimmer 2. If I understand correctly it's released now and it entirely supplants Ember. So how are you planning to gracefully sunset the project?

Terence: I think locks (Ricardo Mendes)...


At EmberConf Terence Lee and I had a chance to sit down with Tom Dale and chat about the history of Ember.js and where it’s headed now, including some details on the newly extracted Glimmer.js rendering engine. This post details a lot of the history of Ember, including some of the motivation that led the framework to what it is today. Watch the blog for the second portion of this interview with all of the details on Glimmer.js. The next post will also include the full audio of the interview, with many questions we opted to omit from the transcription to save valuable bytes.

Jonan: So, we're at EmberConf speaking with Tom Dale, who gave a keynote today with some important...


Your Heroku applications run on top of a curated stack, containing the operating system and other components needed at runtime. We maintain the stack - updating the OS, the libraries, and ensuring that known security issues are resolved, so that you can focus on writing code.

Today we're announcing the general availability of Heroku-16, our curated stack based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. In addition to a new base operating system, Heroku-16 is updated with the latest libraries. If you’re a Ruby or Python developer, Heroku-16 includes 15% more development headers at build time, making it easier to compile native packages on Heroku. Finally, Heroku-16 offers a better local development...
