Download and email Heroku invoices
Kanedama uses Ghost.py to save Heroku invoices as images and will also email them to you.
Why? Because Heroku doesn’t provide any “hard copy” of your invoices, and logging in to the web UI just to screenshot them is boring.
In order for Ghost.py to work, you’ll need to install either PySide or PyQt. For me, that’s:
% sudo apt-get install python-pyside
Then you can sudo pip install kanedama.
You need to create a config.ini file that contains your Heroku API key (see config.example.ini to get started).
By default, we check for $HOME/.config/kanedama/config.ini, so it’s best to keep your config there.
Alternatively, you can just provide the API key via the --key argument.
Stick something like this in your crontab:
01 1 25 * * your_username /usr/bin/python /usr/local/bin/kanedama.py --firstname.lastname@example.org
