Building the Buildpack

To build this buildpack, run the following command from the buildpack's directory:

  1. Source the .envrc file in the buildpack directory.

    source .envrc

    To simplify the process in the future, install direnv which will automatically source .envrc when you change directories.

  2. Install buildpack-packager

    (cd src/go/vendor/github.com/cloudfoundry/libbuildpack/packager/buildpack-packager && go install)
  3. Build the buildpack

    buildpack-packager build [ --cached=(true|false) ]
  4. Use in Cloud Foundry

    Upload the buildpack to your Cloud Foundry and optionally specify it by name

    cf create-buildpack [BUILDPACK_NAME] [BUILDPACK_ZIP_FILE_PATH] 1
    cf push my_app [-b BUILDPACK_NAME]

Testing

To test this buildpack, run the following command from the buildpack's directory:

  1. Source the .envrc file in the buildpack directory.

    source .envrc

    To simplify the process in the future, install direnv which will automatically source .envrc when you change directories.

  2. Run unit tests

    ./scripts/unit.sh
  3. Run integration tests

    ./scripts/integration.sh
