Monkeys ❤ Heroku

It's hard to talk about cloud PaaS (Platform as a Service) without mentioning Heroku, one of the first and arguably easiest way of instantly deploying your web application without having to deal with any self-maintained infrastructure.

If you're new to Monkey Test It, check out our introduction for a summary of our free automated website testing service.


Monkey Test It fits snugly right next to Heroku, instantly triggering a fully automated test of your website each time you push an update.

To install the Heroku integration first create an account and log into your dashboard. Find your API key (listed under "API key for automation") and then execute this command in your console.

Note that you need to replace "XXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX" with your API key, and "http://your-website.com" the URL you'd like to test on each deploy.
