Here is an example deployment of the open-sourced spring-music:
git clone https://github.com/nvvalchev/spring-music.git cf deploy mta-assembly/spring-music.mtar -e config.mtaext
The configuration of the MultiApps CF plugin is done via env variables. The following are supported:
DEBUG=1 - prints in standart output HTTP requests, which are from CLI client to CF deploy service backend.
DEPLOY_SERVICE_URL=<deploy-service-app-url> - the plugin attempts to deduce the deploy service URL based on the CF API URL. In case of issues, or if you want to target a deploy service instance different from the default one, you can configure the targeted deploy service URL via this env variable.

Cloning the repository
To clone the project in your Go workspace
$GOPATH/src/github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator/multiapps-cli-plugin execute the following commands:
mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/cloudfoundry-incubator git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:cloudfoundry-incubator/multiapps-cli-plugin.git
Building new release version
You can automatically build new release for all supported platforms by calling the build.sh script with the version of the build.
The version will be automatically included in the plugin, so it will be reported by
This will produce
mta_plugin_windows_amd64 in the repo's root directory.
Adding dependency into the multiapps-cli-plugin
If you want to add a dependecy which to be used later on during the build and development process, you need to follow these steps:
- Make sure that you have godep installed(try to run
godep version). If you do not have it, run the command:
go get github.com/tools/godep. !!!IMPORTANT!!! Make sure that you are running on latest version of GO and godep!!!
- Get the dependency by executing the command:
go get github.com/<package-full-name>. If you want to update it use the -u option.
- Use the dependecy into your code(just import and use)
- Make sure that the dependency is not in the Godeps/Godeps.json file(if it is, delete the entry related to it). Godeps.json file is holding information about all the dependencies which are used in the project.
godep save ./...- this will add all the newly used dependecies into the Godeps/Godeps.json and into the vendor/ folder.
