Working with Builder Habitat Builder allows you to store, automatically build, and deploy your Habitat packages. For a guided walkthrough of this process, try the Build System demo. Create apache cli option builder binary Builder Account Setting up your Habitat account is easy! Sign In and Authorize Habitat Use the button below to simultaneously sign in to Builder and create your account.
Once you have authorized Habitat and signed in, you’ll arrive at the ‘My Origins’ view. Create an Origin on Builder Origins are unique namespaces that can be used to denote a particular upstream of a package. For example, the “core” origin is the set of foundational packages that are managed and versioned by the core Habitat maintainers. From the My Origins page in the Habitat Builder web app, click the Create origin button. Note To join an existing origin, a current member of that origin will need to invite you. Pending invites will appear on the My Origins page for you to accept.
Enter an Origin Name Pick an origin that is your company name, team name, personal name, or some other unique name that you want to associate with a given set of packages. It’s important to note that once you have uploaded a package into the depot, the origin that you chose when building that package can neither be edited nor deleted. Choose Privacy Setting This is the default privacy setting applied to new packages. You can override this setting on individual packages when uploading or connecting a plan file. Public packages will appear in public search results and can be used by any user, while private packages are restricted to members of the origin. About Origin Keys Origin keys are automatically generated when creating an origin.
They are used to sign artifacts and can be downloaded from the Keys tab after creating the origin. Note If you’ve already created an origin via the CLI tool, then you can upload the origin keys from the CLI to Builder and override the autogenerated set. Builder, or checking status of your build jobs from the Habitat client, will require an access token. From the Builder site, select your user icon in the upper right-hand side, and select Profile. At the bottom of the profile page, select Generate Token. Working with Origin Secrets With the Habitat CLI and a Builder account, you can encrypt and store secrets to expose at build time as environment variables in your Builder builds.
This feature is helpful for plans requiring access to protected resources at build time, such as private source-code repositories, cloud storage providers and the like. To work with origin secrets, first obtain a Builder access token, then apply it on the command line using either the HAB_AUTH_TOKEN environment variable or the –auth option, along with the associated origin. Once your secret has been uploaded, you can refer to it in your plan file as an environment variable, and Builder will supply its decrypted value during your build job. Secrets are encrypted locally using an origin encryption key. Their values are readable only by Builder.
