Rails 6 activestorage

Can you use ActiveStorage with heroku? or do you need some sort of bit bucket on amazon?

I’m asking, because I’m currently just pasting urls into my app, and storing the images on cloudinary.
But, it would be nice to do a file upload of an image.

Thanks,
Joe

You can use ActiveStorage with Heroku. It does not have permanent disk storage so you’ll need to use a cloud service like S3 (AWS S3 or any S3-compatible API), Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud which are supported out of the box, or third-party gems to integrate with Babkblaze (NB: they have an S3 API as well now), Cloudinary, Dropbox, services exposing an OpenStack API, etc.
