Let’s say you have some Ruby file that you want to run on Heroku. For example, I have stuff\things.rb. The easiest way to run the file on Heroku seems to inspire ourselves from db:seeds an write a Rake task in lib/tasks/stuff_things.rake.

namespace :stuff do

  require 'logger'

  desc 'Run stuff/things.rb'
  task :things => :environment do
    file = File.join(Rails.root, 'stuff', 'things.rb')
    puts "Runnng #{file}"
    load(file) if File.exist?(file)


You can run heroku rake stuff:things.
