This is a 3-steps process.

  1. Write an application with whatever technology you like.
  2. Write a deployment manifest.yml file, containing just a few YAML properties.
  3. Comply to some Cloud Foundry conventions, depending on you app technology (Ruby, Java, etc).

Ready? Let’s go!

Write an application

Go follow our detailed step-by-step tutorials, depending on which language you are familiar with. Those will guide you in writing web applications that follow state-of-the-arts best practice.

Ready to gk push?

That’s it, you’re ready.

If you wonder how to use gk push, just type gk push --help. We some more hints in our Command Line section.

You’ll find more information in the “Develop and Manage Applications” section of Cloud Foundry docs.

Further readings

After you gk push your app, Gstack will create an “HTTP route”, so that you can access it with your web browser. Read our HTTPS Guide to implement an encrypted “HTTPS route”.

To plug a database into your app, see our Services Guide. You’ll learn how those services shall find their way into your manifest.yml deployment descriptor.
