If you want to run sqlite locally and pg on heroku, your gemfile needs to look like this:

group :development do
   gem 'sqlite3'

group :production do
   gem 'pg'

You may need to add the Ruby version to your gemfile as well:ruby '1.9.3'

To get your assets to properly compile on heroku, change your production.rb file to say true here instead of false:config.assets.compile = true

Deploy to heroku through git.

Deploy with branch name other than master or main: git push heroku my-branch:main


Push app:git push dokku master

In your production group, you'll likely want these two gems:

gem 'pg' # postgres
gem 'rails_12factor' # for logging

SSH into server to run dokku commands. Use dokku --help for list of commands.

Use git to deploy Heroku app.
