Building the Buildpack

  1. Make sure you have fetched submodules

    git submodule update --init
  2. Get latest buildpack dependencies

    BUNDLE_GEMFILE=cf.Gemfile bundle
  3. Build the buildpack

    BUNDLE_GEMFILE=cf.Gemfile bundle exec buildpack-packager [ --cached | --uncached ]
  4. 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.
