Nuon supports several different component types which allow you to connect your existing devops automation, infrastructure as code and containers to your app.

What is a Component?

A component represents a part of your application, Nuon supports the following components:

  • Docker - any Dockerfile that can be built.
  • Container Images - any prebuilt OCI image.
  • Helm Charts - any Helm chart located in a repository.
  • Terraform - any Terraform module.
  • Jobs - any script that can be executed using an OCI image.

Setting up an application requires definining and testing your application configuration.

Component Management

The cli exposes many operational commands to manage components.

To see all available commands, run: nuon components --help.

Make sure to select an app using nuon apps select before using the components commands, or pass the -a flag to each component command.

Pinning a Component

You can pin a component, which will set it’s ID as a default argument to all component commands. This is helpful to avoid having to pass -c to each command.

Each example below assumes you have run nuon components select first.
