Update the code in The functions update_package_manager_data and update_db was customized for our particular needs. You will want to either subclass those functions in your own application or modify it to suit your needs. We will remove these customizations in a future release. Here is the GitHub issue for reference.

To run:

source venv/bin/activate


Heroku Deploy


heroku login
heroku create
heroku addons:create cleardb:ignite

Access the cleardb DB and create the tables in db/data_schema.sql

heroku config:add ENV=prod
heroku config:add GITHUB_TOKEN=<<your_github_token>>
heroku config:add SENDGRID_API_KEY=<<your_sendgrid_api_key>>
heroku addons:create scheduler:standard
