If a source code URL is specified, OpenShift will pull the source code and convert it into an image to run inside a pod, attempting to guess what build strategy to use. Local source must be in a Git repository that has a remote repository that the server can see. new-app will create a build configuration and a deployment configuration. A service will be connected to the first public port of the app. oc status can be used to check on progress.

oc new-app

Successful creation output:

--> Found image eaf9dfd (5 weeks old) in image stream "openshift/nodejs" under tag "6" for "nodejs"

    Node.js 6
    Node.js 6 available as docker container is a base platform for building and running various Node.js 6 applications and frameworks. Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
