Looks like I will need a buildpack for it to deploy. This is so Heroku can understand what type of app it has.
Solution1: Just deploy it as a github page.
Since its a static site, there is nothing “serving” index.html, and heroku is a cloud platform, hosting apps, not a “webhost” in the web 2.0 sense.
Since I want to keep everything on heroku for now, lets see what else we can do.
Attempted Solution: rename index.html to index.php
The least effort solution is to rename your default file to index.php and redeploy. Heroku will detect it as a PHP site and use that buildpack. – John Beynon
Very curious! Would this work? Why not try it out.
hmm appears to work! I was going to deploy a sinatra app or ry the heroku static bundle and I will probably do that anyway but this quick solution can be a real timesaver!
