Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer Now Supports Custom Buildpacks
Earlier this year, we released the Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer, a tool that enables developers to run a self-contained partial Cloud Foundry v2 installation inside of a Vagrant virtual machine. Since then, we have been working on a number of updates. One of the latest things we have added is support for custom buildpacks.
Who can benefit?
So, who can enjoy the updated functionality?
- developers of custom buildpacks
- developers of applications that require particular non-standard buildpacks
- anyone who wants to know if a Buildpack X would work on Cloud Foundry
- software vendors who want to get their products (in the form of buildpacks) to a broader scope of users
What are the use cases?
Below, you will find common scenarios to employ Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer:
- developing and testing buildpacks and applications based on custom buildbacks
- training: getting anyone new to Cloud Foundry to try it out with any buildpack
- marketing: distributing your custom buildpacks (for example, IBM Liberty) as a single-click installer
