Step 4. Create and deploy component¶
MACH composer is undergoing a major, backwards compatible overhaul
MACH composer has been rewritten in Golang, coming from a Python version. We've done this because the Golang ecosystem is more suitable for a tool like this, as it is also the language in which Hashicorp builds Terraform itself.
Because of this, some commands might not be available yet in the Golang version; particularly the
mach-composer bootstrap command is not available, which makes it a bit
harder to start up. However, based on the examples in the Github repository,
you should be able to get started without the
For creating components, please instead of
mach-composer bootstrap component, use mach-composer-cookiecutter.
We do currently recommend to use the latest version (2.5.x).
If you are still on the Python version, the
bootstrap command will still work.
Create a MACH component¶
Create a MACH component which we can use in our MACH stack later on.
mach-composer bootstrap component
And follow the wizard to create a new component.
This component can now be pushed to a Git repository.
Deploy your component¶
It depends on what component you have, but if you've created a component containing a serverless function, that function needs to be built, packaged and uploaded to a artifact repository.
For a component created with the
mach-composer bootstrap command or one of the
provided example components, these commands will be enough:
./build.sh package ./build.sh upload
The deployment process of a component can vary.
