With buildpacks to the moon!
If you’ve read my previous blog on buildpacks, you’ll know just how powerful they can be in simplifying the deployment process of cloud-native applications. In this blog, we’re going to take things up a notch and show you how to effectively deploy buildpacks.
While buildpacks offer a simple, efficient way of packaging applications, deploying them can be somewhat of a daunting task. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the key steps involved in deploying buildpacks, giving you the knowledge you need to expertly handle your deployment process. So, let’s dive in, and you’ll be deploying your buildpacks like a pro in no time! To keep it simple, we’re going to make use of a PaaS solution, so we don’t have to worry about the infrastructure.
As discussed in the previous blog, Heroku was one of the creators of Buildpacks. It would be nice to host our application on their service, right?!?
Unfortunately, Heroku has canceled their free tier of services. Besides their cancelation of the free tier services, there are a few other reasons not to use it anymore.
So what other choices do we have? There are of course plenty of PaaS platforms out there, but there is one that is gathering more support, and that is fly.io.
