Pushing a non-master branch to Heroku
I completed a React project with a Rails API backend. Locally everything worked prefectly. When trying to change environment variables like the address of the API backend, I wanted to create a seperate branch for heroku, it case I needed to edit something for heroku. I would rather not clutter “master” with changes until they are 100% working.
Problem is heroku only recognizes master branches, but to test I need to commit to master
Well there is a work aorund, just push a different branch up to heroku manually
git push heroku [name-of-your-branch]:master
this way I can push up a branch I named heroku up to heroku.
