Pre-Run Scripting

Lando will run any shell script it finds in your services /scripts directory before it boots up each service. We dogfood this functionality in our core plugins to generate self-signed certs and handle user permissions, but it can be used by the user to provide some additional customizations before a service is started. Consider the trivial example below.

An executable (eg chmod +x) bash script located in scripts/ in your app root directory.


echo "Hey this script is actually running!"

A .lando.yml that injects the script into the appserver's /scripts directory.

      - scripts/

Expected behavior

# Restart the app
lando restart

# Inspect the log to see if it printed our message
lando logs -s appserver
