Set up your local environment

First, we’ll create a sample Ruby app that you can use when developing your buildpack:

mkdir ruby-sample-app

Create a file in the current directory called ruby-sample-app/app.rb with the following contents:

require 'sinatra'

set :bind, ''
set :port, 8080

get '/' do
  'Hello World!'

Then, create a file called ruby-sample-app/Gemfile with the following contents:

source ""

git_source(:github) {|repo_name| "{repo_name}" }

gem "sinatra"

Finally, make sure your local Docker daemon is running by executing:

docker version

If you see output similar to the following, you’re good to go! Otherwise, start Docker and check again.
