Using Heroku For Facebook Application Development - Common Errors

You might come across several issues while deploying facebook applications from heroku. This article describes most of the pitfalls you can avoid if you are are not very familiar with the environment. Mostly, I'd refer you to already existing tutorials that are hard to find on googling.

2. Now go to your ubuntu terminal and login with your credentials to upload the ssh keys

3. Bang! Errors? - Step 2 might not work for you if you don't have some dependancy packages installed in your ubuntu. First browse to the /usr/bin folder then ask you to if you still have some error like:

heroku /command/run.rb:1:in `require': no such file to load -- readline (LoadError)

Here you are missing ruby . You can install ruby by typing the following lines in the terminal
