Pushing an app with multiple buildpacks

Page last updated:

You can push an app with multiple buildpacks using the Cloud Foundry Command Line Interface (cf CLI).

As an alternative to the cf CLI procedure, you can specify multiple buildpacks in your app manifest. This is not compatible with deprecated app manifest features. For more information, see Deploying with App Manifests.

For more information about pushing apps, see Pushing an App.

Specifying buildpacks with the cf CLI

To push an app with multiple buildpacks using the cf CLI:

Note You must use cf CLI v6.38 or later.

  1. Ensure that you are using the cf CLI v6.38 or later by running:

    cf version

    For more information about upgrading the cf CLI, see Installing the cf CLI.

  2. To push your app with multiple buildpacks, specify each buildpack with a -b flag by running:



    • YOUR-APP is the name of your app.
    • BUILDPACK-NAME-1, BUILDPACK-NAME-2, and BUILDPACK-NAME-3 are the names of the buildpacks you want to push with your app.

    The last buildpack you specify is the final buildpack, which modifies the launch environment and sets the start command.

    To see a list of available buildpacks, run:

    cf buildpacks

For more information on multi buildpack order, see How buildpacks work.
