I change some text in my application and deploy new version with

If i select all my folders in my app project (including public/, tmp/ and log/ that I ignore with slugignore e gitignore) total size is only 198 KB.

Why all this?

  • Active Admin works locally but not on heroku when I push to heroku
  • git commit creates assets and temporary files for some reason
  • rails 4 bundle install with nested form master branch
  • Changes show up locally but not on Heroku
  • Heroku - Fatal error doing git push heroku master
  • Can't Push Rails Project to Heroku
  • public/system symlink issue in deployment - capistrano
  • undo git merged pushes into wrong branch
  • One Solution collect form web for “Heroku Repo Size and Slug Size increase with each deployment. Why?”

    It’s most likely due to build cache. To speed up build process, Heroku downloads dependencies, and over time it gets built up.

    Use their repo plugin to purge build cache, and re-deploy. You will see the slug size being lowered.
