  • Using certbot to add Let's Encrypt certificate on Heroku

    July 26, 2020

    Ever since Google announced in 2017 that they would be prioritizing sites with HTTPS for SEO, I knew I had to make sure this blog had the necessary setup. I initially procrastinated a bit because I thought I was going to have to do some research to find the latest and greatest in terms of trusted certificate authorities. Once I decided to put this in place my research wasn’t long at all.

    Well that gives me peace of mind. Further investigation then pointed me to certbot, a

    But now, I’m probably going to be working for a couple of months on this, so I figured it would be better for my own sanity to just set everything up from the very beginning, to make the deployment process as easy as possible.

    I googled for a while and the people seem to be using git for this. Now, there are a couple of options out there. There’s resmo’s git-ftp which is a git powered…
