Use a custom buildpack
If you need to deploy a technology which is not supported by Scalingo, you can used an open-source buildpack or a buildpack you have developed.
To achieve this, you need to define the following environment variable in
the environment of the concerned application:
Then during the deployment, you’ll be able to see:
<-- Start deployment of myapp --> -----> Cloning custom buildpack: 'https://github.com/cloudfoundry/java-buildpack' -- SNIP --
Build a custom buildpack
Our execution stack is public and can be found as a docker image on the Docker Hub
Its name is scalingo/builder:latest. The base
image is based on Ubuntu 14.04, so you’ll find every tool from the
ubuntu:14.04 docker image.
docker pull scalingo/builder docker run --interactive --tty -v /path/to/custom-buildpack:/buildpack scalingo/builder:latest bash
Then if you need to build third-party binaries, you’ll be assured that they will work on our platform.
