Remote Bitbucket Repo to Heroku

I've signed up for Heroku, and have a full website in a repo I created on BitBucket. How would I clone the repository (or remote?) into heroku, and have everything update on the fly? I'd like to make changes on my machine, and have Heroku update the site every time the BitBucket repo has changed.

Hi Justin,

You can use Bamboo for this task, creating a plan that checks the Bitbucket changes and triggers a script task that updates Heroku.

Afraid I'm rather confused. Being a novice, I could use a set of instructions. The only things I see in the forums/docs is this: "You can use Bamboo to deploy your Java web application to the Heroku cloud platform." So, what about static websites? I have a static website repo under my BitBucket account, and I understand Heroku has Bamboo as an add-on, but that's as much as I know. I know little as to how to set this all up.

Well, Bamboo appears to not be a free solution, unless I'm mistaken. I'm looking for something free for a small-scale portfolio website. That's really all I need. Is there no other way to hook the source (Bitbucket repo) to Heroku, and have the site update as I push changes?

Still wondering if there's a free way to do this. I'd rather not pay for a service like Bamboo if I can do it for free - hence the whole reason I want to use Heroku instead of a free webhost that doesn't allow SSH or Git. Anyone? Still waiting for a reply...

Nevermind then....

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
