Version 2.3

Getting started with buildpacks

Kf supports a variety of buildpacks. This document covers some starter examples for using them.

Before you begin

  • You should have Kf running on a cluster.
  • You should have run kf target -s <space-name> to target your space.

Java (v2) Buildpack

Use spring initializr to create a Java 8 maven project with a spring web dependency and JAR packaging. Download it, extract it, and once extracted you can generate a JAR.

./mvnw package

Push the JAR to Kf with the Java v2 buildpack.

kf push java-v2 --path target/helloworld-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar

Java (v3) Buildpack

Use spring initializr to create a Java 8 maven project with a spring web dependency and JAR packaging. Download it, extract it, and once extracted, push to Kf with the cloud native buildpack.

kf push java-v3 --stack org.cloudfoundry.stacks.cflinuxfs3

Python (v2) Buildpack

Create a new directory with files as shown in the following structure.

tree
.
├── Procfile
├── requirements.txt
└── server.py
cat Procfile
web: python server.py
cat requirements.txt
Flask
cat server.py
from flask import Flask
import os
app = Flask(__name__)
@app.route('/')
def hello_world():
    return 'Hello, World!'
if __name__ == "__main__":
  port = int(os.getenv("PORT", 8080))
  app.run(host='0.0.0.0', port=port)

Push the Python flask app using v2 buildpacks.

kf push python --buildpack python\_buildpack

Python (v3) Buildpack

(same as above)

Push the Python flask app using cloud native buildpacks.

kf push pythonv3 --stack org.cloudfoundry.stacks.cflinuxfs3

Staticfile (v2) Buildpack

Create a new directory that holds your source code.

Add an index.html file with this content.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html lang="en">

<head><title>Hello, world!</title></head>

<body><h1>Hello, world!</h1></body>

</html>

Push the static content with the staticfile buildpack.

kf push staticsite --buildpack staticfile\_buildpack
