Detecting your application

Next you will want to actually detect that the app your are building is a ruby app. In order to do this you will need to check for a Gemfile.

Replace exit 1 with the following check in your detect script

if [[ ! -f Gemfile ]]; then
   exit 100
fi

And now your detect script will look like this

#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -eo pipefail

if [[ ! -f Gemfile ]]; then
   exit 100
fi

Next, rebuild your app with your updated buildpack

pack build test-ruby-app --buildpack workspace/ruby-cnb  --path workspace/ruby-sample-app/

You will see the following output

===> DETECTING
[detector] Trying group of 1...
[detector] ======== Results ========
[detector] Ruby Buildpack: pass
===> RESTORING
[restorer] cache image 'pack-cache-5f615b7ee276' not found, nothing to restore
===> ANALYZING
[analyzer] WARNING: image 'test-ruby-app' not found or requires authentication to access
[analyzer] WARNING: image 'test-ruby-app' has incompatible 'io.buildpacks.lifecycle.metadata' label
===> BUILDING
[builder] ---> Ruby Buildpack
[builder] Error: failed to : exit status 1
ERROR: failed with status code: 7

Notice that detect now passes because there is a valid Gemfile in the ruby app at ~/ruby-sample-app, but now build fails because it is coded to do so.

You will also notice ANALYZING now appears in the build output. This steps is part of the buildpack lifecycle that looks to see if any previous image builds have layers that the buildpack can re-use. We will get into this topic in more detail later.
