CF Slack Join us on Slack

A Cloud Foundry buildpack for Node based apps.

This is based on the Heroku buildpack.

Additional documentation can be found at the

Buildpack User Documentation

Official buildpack documentation can be found at node buildpack docs.

Building the Buildpack

  1. Make sure you have fetched submodules
git submodule update --init
  1. Get latest buildpack dependencies
BUNDLE_GEMFILE=cf.Gemfile bundle
  1. Build the buildpack
BUNDLE_GEMFILE=cf.Gemfile bundle exec buildpack-packager [ --cached | --uncached ]
  1. Use in Cloud Foundry

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

cf create-buildpack custom_node_buildpack 1
cf push my_app -b custom_node_buildpack


Buildpacks use the Machete framework for running integration tests.

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

BUNDLE_GEMFILE=cf.Gemfile bundle exec buildpack-build

More options can be found on Machete's GitHub page.
