What would you like to do?
Download Heroku DB
  1. Use heroku pgbackups to get url of latest backup:

     heroku pgbackups:url
  2. Download the .dump file.

  3. Create a db to restore into:

     psql -c "create database firehose_live_backup"

(note: show current dbs with psql then \list)

  1. Restore into the new db:

     pg_restore --verbose --clean --no-acl --no-owner -h localhost -U adamkirk -d firehose_live_backup ~/Downloads/a483.dump

And a bash script to do it all for you:

    heroku pgbackups:capture --expire --app firehose-api
    url=`heroku pgbackups:url --app firehose-api`
    curl $url > ~/Downloads/live_fh_copy.dump
    psql -c "drop database firehose_live_backup"
    psql -c "create database firehose_live_backup"
    pg_restore --verbose --clean --no-acl --no-owner -h localhost -U adamkirk -d firehose_live_backup ~/Downloads/live_fh_copy.dump
