Push Non-master Branch To Heroku

When using git to deploy your app to Heroku, it is expected that you push to the master branch. When you run the following command

$ git push heroku master

Heroku will attempt to build and run your app. However, if you have a staging branch for your application that you want to push to your staging environment on Heroku, you cannot simply run

$ git push heroku staging

Heroku will only perform a build on pushes to the remote master branch. You can get around this, though, by specifying that your staging branch should be pushed to the remote master branch, like so

$ git push heroku staging:master
