I used to run a Jekyll instance on Heroku, but got tired of updating Jekyll myself, so I decided to let GitHub manage it.
Jekyll is “pure” Ruby, not Rails, so there’s no builtin asset pipeline. GitHub manages it for me, generating Sass as necessary. (When I was hosting on Heroku, I added an asset pipeline with the jekyll-assets gem.)
Default CSS provided by Thoughtbot’s Bitters because Bourbon, Neat needs a dash of Bitters.
The RSS feed is served directly from within GitHub (no need for FeedBurner etc. yet) via
feed.xml from snaptortise’s Jekyll RSS Feed Templates.
(When I was hosted on Heroku, log management was handled by Logentries. GitHub error messages are pretty sparse; I need to find a replacement.)
