Hi everyone, I'm developping a Rails4 application with heroku hosting, and i encounter a bit of a problem:
I have a helper method to randomly pick an image by its path in /assets/images/path_to_image and this helper method is called in my HAML file. It works perfectly in my local environment. The images urls are stored in the DB. The problem is that Heroku changes the image names from logo.jpg to logo-a6d14b20c77aa6466e616313edcd3d34.jpg which makes my helper method useless. Any idea on how i could solve this problem? Is it a matter of pre-compiling the assets ?
Thanks a lot

It looks like MongoHQ offers a direct to S3 backup feature for non add-on plans: http://support.mongohq.com/backups/backup-to-s3.html You may want to contact them directly to see if they can roll something to meet your needs?

Heroku API is dealing with an issue, I'm unable to perform config changes to my production app, I wonder why heroku says the issue is in 'development' while it affects instead production services. What's 'Development' from Heroku's point of view?

Ever received a warning from Heroku about the amount or rows in your database? I recently got this problem and found a solution to find the problematic table and inspect it with pgAdmin III.
Heroku is a great platform, but it do has some limitations in its free service. One of those is the maximum on the number of rows in the PostgreSQL …

Hi!

My heroku app needs to access a remote DB that has limited by IP access.

I know I can only have a static IP address on heroku by using an add-on but I found it to be pretty expensive to access a remote DB.

But is there a way to know at least a range of IP's so that I can limt access to such range?
