Hoptoad is now available as a Heroku Addon

We’ve been working with Heroku to bring you an even easier and more convenient way to add Hoptoad to your Heroku apps:

$ heroku addons:add hoptoad:plus

  • $7/month, SSL, ratelimit of 30 errors/minute, plus Github, Lighthouse, and deploy integration

$ heroku addons:add hoptoad:basic

  • $2/month, SSL, ratelimit of 5 errors/minute

Or, if you prefer, you can add Hoptoad to your app with a single click over on the Hoptoad Heroku Addon page.

Once you’ve configured the addon, you’ll want to install the Hoptoad Notifier in your project, and you can use a shiny, new, Heroku-specific configuration flag in the generator:

$ rails generate hoptoad --heroku

Then, you can click through from your Heroku dashboard to the Hoptoad addon, and get the same Hoptoad interface you’re come to know and love:

The Heroku Addon Experience

I would highly recommend building your own Heroku addon. The experience is getting very polished, and there is a large amount of documentation at the Heroku Addon Provider site. They take care of billing and provide a single-sign on API for addon providers, and generally make the process seamless and pain-free. We’ve been working with them for a while, through the development of their addon platform, and they have a very solid offering now. Go forth and develop!

Hound automatically reviews Ruby, JavaScript, and CoffeeScript code in your GitHub pull requests and comments on style violations. It is free for open source repos and $12/month per private repo.
