Build System in App Platform

The build system in App Platform is what is responsible for inspecting your source code and creating a runnable app at the end of the process.

App Platform currently supports two main varieties of builds:

  • Cloud Native Buildpacks. This is the default build variety and it works with most apps out of the box. Cloud Native Buildpacks examine your repository’s source code and automatically determine how to build your application.
  • Dockerfile builds. These builds use Dockerfile instruction sets to build your app, which lets you customize the entire build process.
