This is a work-in-progress to research how TYPO3 CMS can be run on Heroku using the current cedar stack.
- install heroku cli
- login through
- create heroku app with

- push to heroku
git push heroku master
- open in browser and complete setup with
heroku openmake sure to delete
php.ini values will be picked up from a

This flow is needed to keep the various mechanisms in sync after push.
composer updateonly with the
--prefer-distflag as currently it would download the whole TYPO3 repository
- accessing the install tool is only possible when the ENABLE_INSTALL_TOOL marker file is present
