Can’t install Heroku CLI on Raspberry Pi 3 running Raspbian

I’ve just started using my RP3 as my development box, and got everything working fine: Python 3.6, created venv’s, installed posgresql, working with Django. All is fine. Except that, if I want to work with Heroku, their CLI (former Toolbelt) won’t install, stating the package doesn’t exist.

What I did:

Their official site states that we should run a script:

wget -qO- https://cli-assets.heroku.com/install-ubuntu.sh | sh

Which basically seems to include heroku on the sources for apt-get, update it (apt-get update) and then install by running apt-get install heroku. Full output is here:

$ sudo wget -qO- https://cli-    assets.heroku.com/install-ubuntu.sh | sh
+ SUDO=
+ id -u
+ [ 1000 != 0 ]
+ SUDO=sudo
+ echo This script requires superuser access to install apt packages.

+ echo You will be prompted for your password by sudo.

+ sudo -k
+ sudo sh
+ dpkg -s apt-transport-https
+ echo deb https://cli-assets.heroku.com/branches/stable/apt ./
+ dpkg -s heroku-toolbelt
+ true
+ apt-key add -
+ wget -qO- https://cli-assets.heroku.com/apt/release.key
OK
+ apt-get update

Installing what they call the “Standalone” program also doesn’t seem it would work, since there are builds for x86 and x64 only, not ARM, which is the RPI’s architecture.

Has anyone succeeded in doing this? I found other questions like this online, but no answer!
