I'm trying to get a [wiki app][1](making ues of the [gollum gem][2]) up
and running in the cloud using heroku for deployment. The app is using
Rails 4.1 with ruby 2.1.2.

While doing a  git push heroku master I got an error related to setting
up of the charlock_holmes gem that requires **libicu-dev** to be
installed on the Heroku platform.

The detailed error is pasted [here][3] .

After some research [this solution][4] seemed to have an answer that
could be tried but unfortunately I couldn't get this working for me. I
did try placing the gem in the [gemfile][5] but I don't seem to
understand how can I get away from using the charlock_holmes because
based on my understanding the gem dependencies(the runtime dependencies)
wrt gollum work like -
gollum -> gollum-lib -> gitlab-grit -> charlock_holmes . I'm not sure of
a way to override charlock_holmes gem with charlock_holmes_bundle_icu
and I'm also not sure if it's a safe bet doing so.

For another workaround I also referred to [this article][6] on
installing libicu on heroku. The issue I faced with this solution was I
got the error - **no Cedar-supported app detected** . I tried to fix
this as well using [this solution][7] but I couldn't really stop from
getting this error when I retried the same solution as that in the
[article][8]. I'm relatively new to heroku so I couldn't really figure
out what I was doing wrong.
I also couldn't really follow the last set of instructions as to where
exactly can I find the file - **.heroku-bundle/config** such that I can
place the required information based on the details specified.

Any pointers on how can I get this working would be really handy.
