Cloud Native Buildpacks define how to transform your application source code into a runnable image based on an open standard specification. The App Platform build system uses Cloud Native Buildpacks to detect, build, and run your apps.
App Platform configures and provides this environment automatically when running builds on behalf of your source repository. Our supported buildpacks will be detected against your repository and the resulting successful
buildpacks will then be used to execute the build of your application.
The set of
buildpacks currently supported on the App Platform can be found below. If App Platform doesn’t yet support your desired language, you can use Dockerfile Builds to define a custom build process for your application.
