Heroku not free anymore.. voila/notebook?

Hi everybody. As you know, heroku will not be free anymore… so sad, it permit to launch my app.ipynb with more speed than mybinder do… because don’t have to deploy any time…
I have heard of other free plateform to deploy apps : render.app, cyclic… , but wich ones can function with voila ?
What about the Procfile needed on heroku to start voila… how it works with others platform ?
Thanks for your helps.

Indeed, this change to the default Heroku plan will make it a bit more difficult to deploy Voila apps easily.

Not sure there is a good alternative as of today except Binder.

If someone finds something it would be great to add it to the Voila documentation: Deploying Voilà — voila 0.4.0b0 documentation

Hi, Thanks for your answer,

Finaly, I tested the platform : Render.com

In the “starting command” of Render’s setting, I didn’t write like the
Heroku’s Procfile ( web: voila --port=$PORT --no-browser --Voila.ip= App.ipynb ) ;
I just write : voila --port=$PORT --no-browser --Voila.ip= App.ipynb

And it works !..

I think it’s just slower than Heroku… But it’s free.

Hope this could help others.

Nice thanks for sharing this.

The limitations for their free services look similar to the ones Heroku had before: Free Plans | Render · Cloud Hosting for Developers

This is now tracked in Document deploying Voila to Render.com · Issue #1230 · voila-dashboards/voila · GitHub.
