CF Slack Join us on Slack

A Cloud Foundry buildpack for Python based apps.

This buildpack supports running Django and Flask apps.

Buildpack User Documentation

Official buildpack documentation can be found at python buildpack docs.

Building the Buildpack

To build this buildpack, run the following commands 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/python/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

Buildpacks use the Cutlass framework for running integration tests.

To test this buildpack, run the following commands 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

    Buildpacks use the Cutlass framework for running integration tests against Cloud Foundry. Before running the integration tests, you need to login to your Cloud Foundry using the cf cli:

    cf login -a https://api.your-cf.com -u name@example.com -p pa55woRD

    Note that your user requires permissions to run cf create-buildpack and cf update-buildpack. To run the integration tests, run the following command from the buildpack's directory:

    ./scripts/integration.sh
