Using multiple commands on heroku CLI

Need to use multiple heroku CLI commands one after another and don’t want to type -a foo-bar-baz every time?

Type export HEROKU_APP=foo-bar-baz in terminal and then just happily run heroku command on foo-bar-baz application.

heroku pg:backups:capture -a foo-bar-baz

# is equivalent to:

export HEROKU_APP=foo-bar-baz
heroku pg:backups:capture

PS. After that you might want to unset HEROKU_APP to remove variable.
