Heroku doesn’t have an official document as of yet for deploying a meteor application on their platform. However meteor does just use node.js under the hood, so a specailly crafted buildpack can actually make it run there… for the most part.

This buildpack worked for the most part.
First start by checking your application into git with the basic following:
Then create the heroku app with this command:
Now create a remote for Heroku doing this:
Next you need to push the application by doing a git push:
Now you need to set the ROOT_URL by doing this
Now you should be able to navigate to your URL and it should work.
This actually auto set me up for a free MongoLab account on Heroku and my database was up and running with 0 configuration. Wow!
Meteorite Build Pack
This one I couldn’t get to work with version 220.127.116.11. I would get errors after deploying to heroku that something went wrong with the application.
