Blog on Heroku using Butter

Announcing Butter add-on for Heroku

Heroku is a fantastic service that makes spinning up a Rails or Django app a snap. Millions of developers use Heroku to eliminate worrying about managing the infrastructure of their Rails/Django app. However, when it comes to spinning up a blog, developers still face the problems of current blogging options. The most popular option (Wordpress) requires you to hassle with spinning up your own Wordpress server or finding a Wordpress hosting company. Of course, you then need to go through the entire setup process of theming this new Wordpress blog.

Today, using the Butter Heroku add-on, you now have a push-button blog that integrates right into your existing application. There's nothing new for you to host, maintain, patch, backup, etc... Just beautiful blog goodness running completely on Heroku and Butter.

Your Best Blog Alternative

Butter is the best blog alternative for your application because Butter leverages your existing layout templates and CSS so your blog instantly matches your brand, forever. To accomplish the same thing with a Wordpress blog and getting it custom themed will take at least 2+ weeks and $2000+.

With the Butter Heroku add-on, you can now achieve a fully themed blog in 60 seconds and $0 in theming costs. And because we host Butter, it scales with you as you grow, just like Heroku.

Experience Butter

Experience what a modern blog alternative feels like. Check out the add-on documentation and add Butter to your Heroku application and let us know your thoughts. We'd love to hear what you think.
