Once you have your project initialized, it’s time to add the basics to get it deployed.

In your repository, create a file to hold your app configuration:

touch .platform.app.yaml

This file holds all the configuration for the container where your app lives. By keeping the configuration in this file, you ensure it remains the same across all environments, from development to production.

Start by adding basic properties for your app, such as its name and language. You can adjust the file to fit your code, such as the start command to start your app, or desires, such as changing the name.

.platform.app.yaml
# The name of the app. Must be unique within a project.

This assumes you start your app with a start script in your package.json. You may need to adapt the start command to fit your app.

web:
    commands:
        # This should match the output of your build command
        start: ./bin/app

You may need to adapt the start command to fit your app.

    commands:
        # Adapt the `app.jar` to what's in `build.gradle`
        start: java -jar $JAVA_OPTS build/libs/app.jar --server.port=$PORT

You may need to adapt the start command to fit your app.

To build your app, you may also need to add commands to go through the build process. These are included in what’s known as the build hook.

Add something similar to the following to the end of the file you just added:

.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: pipenv install --system --deploy
.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: |
        # Fail the build if any part fails
        set -e
        # Install poetry
        export PIP_USER=false
        curl -sSL https://install.python-poetry.org | python3 - --version $POETRY_VERSION
        export PIP_USER=true
        # Install dependencies
        poetry install        

(This assumes you have your build process as part of a build script in your package.json)

.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: npm run build
.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: |
        # Fail the build if any part fails
        set -e
        corepack yarn install
        corepack yarn build        
.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: |
        # Fail the build if any part fails
        set -e
        yarn --frozen-lockfile
        yarn build        
.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    # Make sure the output matches your start command
    build:  go build -o bin/app
.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: mvn clean package

Assuming you’ve committed Gradle to your repository.

.platform.app.yaml
hooks:
    build: ./gradlew clean build --no-daemon

Commit your changes (to save your changes):

git add .
git commit -m "Add Platform.sh files"

Push your changes (to share your changes with everyone with access to your project/repository):

platform push

You can now see your built app at the returned URL.

Your app is built and served at the returned URL, but it doesn’t yet have all the services it needs to work.

You could define more complicated routes, but the default is enough for basic apps. Now branch your environment to see how data works in Platform.sh and then add services.
