Building Your Application

Build an image using pack with the following command

pack build test-drive -p <path/to/test-drive/app> --builder gcr.io/paketo-buildpacks/builder:base

Verify that your build was successful by running docker images you should expect to see something similar to the following output

REPOSITORY                         TAG                 IMAGE ID            CREATED             SIZE

Run the image locally on port 8080 using the following command

docker run -p 8080:8080 test-drive

Congratulations! Your app is now running on localhost:8080. It is that simple to use Paketo Buildpacks.
