Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer Now Supports Custom Buildpacks

Alexander Borovsky

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 I have added is support for custom buildpacks.

Who can benefit?

  • Developers of custom buildpacks
  • Developers of an application that requires a particular non-standard buildpack
  • Anyone who wants to know if a Buildpack X would work onCloud Foundry
  • Software vendors who want to get their products (in the form of buildpacks) to more users

What are the use cases?

  • 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: Distribute your custom buildpacks (for example, IBM Liberty) as a one-click installer

You can download the Cloud Foundry Vagrant Installer here. Or, read more about custom CF buildpacks support.
