Compiling Binaries

The folder support/build contains Bob build scripts for all binaries and dependencies.

To get started with it, create an app on Heroku inside a clone of this repository, and set your S3 config vars:

$ heroku create --buildpack https://github.com/heroku/heroku-buildpack-python#not-heroku
$ heroku ps:scale web=0
$ heroku config:set WORKSPACE_DIR=/app/support/build
$ heroku config:set AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<your_aws_key>
$ heroku config:set AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<your_aws_secret>
$ heroku config:set S3_BUCKET=<your_s3_bucket_name>
$ heroku config:set S3_PREFIX=<optional_s3_subfolder_to_upload_to>

Then, shell into an instance and run a build by giving the name of the formula inside support/build:

$ heroku run bash
Running `bash` attached to terminal... up, run.6880
~ $ bob build php-5.5.11RC1

Fetching dependencies... found 2:
  - libraries/zlib
  - libraries/libmemcached
Building formula php-5.5.11RC1:
    === Building PHP
    Fetching PHP v5.5.11RC1 source...
    Compiling PHP v5.5.11RC1...

If this works, run bob deploy instead of bob build to have the result uploaded to S3 for you.

To speed things up drastically, it'll usually be a good idea to heroku run bash --size PX instead.

If the dependencies are not yet deployed, you can do so by e.g. running bob deploy libraries/zlib.


To work on this buildpack, fork it on Github. You can then use Anvil with a local buildpack to easily iterate on changes without pushing each time.

Alternatively, you may push changes to your fork (ideally in a branch if you'd like to submit pull requests), then create a test app with heroku create --buildpack <your-github-url#branch> and push to it.
