»Running Waypoint Up

This application is configured to use Cloud Native Buildpacks to detect the type of application running and to launch it within Nomad. Because Waypoint uses the applicable buildpack to create the Dockerfile, you do not need to create the file yourself.

Once Waypoint completes the build, it stores the artifacts in either a local or remote registry.

The registry clause in the waypoint.hcl file specifies where to store the app's artifacts. If the registry clause is not present, Waypoint will default to using the local docker instance to store the app's artifacts.

For this example application, Waypoint will store the image in a remote Docker repository after the app is built.

We can now deploy the application to Nomad by running waypoint up.

Waypoint will show the progressive status of the build, deploy, and release steps in the terminal output. As part of the deployment workflow, Waypoint creates a preview URL for your application.

Waypoint will show the result of your deployment in the Terminal, along with your specific preview URL.

The deploy was successful! A Waypoint deployment URL is shown below. This
can be used internally to check your deployment and is not meant for external
traffic. You can manage this hostname using "waypoint hostname."
