Problem Deploying my App with Heroku

I am following the video tutorial on using Heroku for deploying my app that I have created. The tutorial is with the developer that did all of the WebApp lessons. I have followed his instructions line for line from the beginning and now that I am trying to deploy it I am having an error. Here is the error:

(myapp) mttaborturtle@penguin:~/projects/myapp$ git push heroku master

If anyone has any information I’d be very grateful. I’ve been working on this ALL day and I am at wits end. Thank you!

Hi there.

You need to edit your requirements.txt file and remove the line pkg-resources=0.0.0.

Commit the change afterwards and try and push to Heroku again, it should work… other issues notwithstanding. :slight_smile:
