My Heroku Cheatsheet

You can find all this in the Heroku docs, I’m just filtering out the stuff I use very frequently. I will keep updating this so check back later. ALl of my examples include the -a myapp at the end because 95% of my apps have both staging and production environments so I have gotten in the habit of using this option.
