RubyZip zip file creation works on localhost but not heroku

I have rubyzip 0.9.9 and am creating a zip file like so:

Zip::ZipFile.open(zip_path, Zip::ZipFile::CREATE) do |zipfile|
#code goes here
end

When I give it a zip path like this: zip_path = File.join(Rails.root,
“/tmp/zips/#{zip.id}.zip”) , it works fine locally, but not on heroku.
On
heroku I get an error like: failed with Errno::ENOENT: No such file or
directory - /tmp/zips/31.zip20140115-1059-1j1bx6

I looks like it’s appending a timestamp onto the filepath for some
reason.
I switched to using zip_path =
File.expand_path(’/tmp/zips/#{zip.id}.zip"), and I get that same “No
such
file or directory” error on localhost also.

What’s going on here? Something with the RubyZip gem?

Does the tmp/zips folder exist on heroku (remember that git doesn’t
handle empty directories)

I’m pretty sure you can’t save files on heroku. You would need to save
it to something like AWS.

If it’s for a user you could just offload it onto them too by using
something like jszip and doing it in browser.
