What is the lifecycle?
The lifecycle orchestrates buildpack execution, then assembles the resulting artifacts into a final app image.
- Detection – Finds an ordered group of buildpacks to use during the build phase.
- Analysis – Restores files that buildpacks may use to optimize the build and export phases.
- Build – Transforms application source code into runnable artifacts that can be packaged into a container.
- Export – Creates the final OCI image.
