Waypoint allows developers to define their application build, deploy, and release lifecycle as code, reducing the time to deliver deployments through a consistent and repeatable workflow.

Waypoint supports a number of build methods and target platforms out of the box and more can be easily added via plugins:

  • Cloud Native Buildpacks
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • AWS EC2 and ECS
  • Azure Container Instances
  • Google Cloud Run
  • And many more...

Waypoint runs on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

Please note: We take Waypoint's security and our users' trust very seriously. If you believe you have found a security issue in Waypoint, please responsibly disclose by contacting us at

Installing Dependencies

This repository contains a couple of different ways to automate installing the required Golang packages needed to build Waypoint locally. You can either use NixOS, or run make tools to setup the required packages.

Running the unit tests

To run the entire test suite, you'll want to ensure that you've brought up all the required containers used for testing. You can do this by leveraging the existing docker-compose.yml file that's in the root directory of this project:

$ docker-compose up

After running this, you should have a local Horizon container along with a few other services needed for running the tests:

$ make test

Running individual tests

If you don't want to run the entire test suite, you can just run a singe test with go. For example, if you wanted to run the tests ListInstances, you would run:

$ go test -run ListInstances -v ./internal/server/singleprocess
