Linux plans in Habitat on Windows


#1

Habitat newbie question. Are Linux plans supported on Habitat while running under Windows? The only Windows support I can seem to find targets Windows containers. Take the node.js sample tutorial on Habitat.sh for example. After entering the studio and executing build, studio complains that plan.ps1 cannot be found.

Basically what I want to do is put together a Habitat plan on a Windows workstation, and the result being Habitat running on a Linux supervisor. Is this possible?

As far as I know, no. @mwrock may be able to provide more context here

If you set your docker engine to “linux container mode” then a hab studio enter (or hab studio enter -D on 0.64.0 and greater) will drop you into a linux based studio where you can build and run linux based plans.

@mwrock That did the trick. Thanks! Getting that info via the habitat.sh documentation was nearly impossible.
