Creating a platform to tsuru


Tsuru allows you create apps the way you want using the platform you want. But for that you need to be create a platform prepared for run with.

To Tsuru be able to use your platform you need to configure the following scripts on /var/lib/tsuru:

  • deploy
  • restart
  • start

Tsuru has a base platform that you can use to base yours.

Using docker

Now we will create a whole new platform with docker, circus and tsuru basebuilder. Tsuru basebuilder provides to us some useful scripts like install, setup and start.

So, using the base platform provided by tsuru we can write a Dockerfile like that:

from        ubuntu:14.04
run apt-get install wget -y --force-yes
run wget -O basebuilder.tar.gz --no-check-certificate
run mkdir /var/lib/tsuru
run tar -xvf basebuilder.tar.gz -C /var/lib/tsuru --strip 1
run cp /var/lib/tsuru/base/restart /var/lib/tsuru
run cp /var/lib/tsuru/base/start /var/lib/tsuru
run cp /home/your-user/deploy /var/lib/tsuru
run /var/lib/tsuru/base/install
run /var/lib/tsuru/base/setup

Adding your platform to tsuru

If you create a platform using docker, you can use the tsuru-admin cmd to add that.

$ tsuru-admin platform-add your-platform-name --dockerfile http://url-to-dockerfile
