Renaming your Heroku app.

You create a Heroku app. but it gets by default a funny name like whispering-forest-5386.herokuapp.com. How to give it a normal name?

On the Heroku site, navigate to your Dashboard and choose Settings next to your app. There you can give a new name to your app. It will be activated immediately and you won’t be able to reach your app. with the old name.

When trying to push a new version with git, you will get an error. Git is trying to use the old name of your app. Edit the file .git/config and update the url by hand.
