Build Expressions

A Build Expression (abbreviated “BuildExpr” singular, or “BuildExprs” plural) is an abstract syntax tree (AST) representation of a particular commit to your project. Build expressions represent, in a machine-oriented structure, the intent of a user’s commit and subsequently, what the ActiveState platform will build.

ActiveState Platform projects use BuildExprs to describe the expected successful build of your project. These are then used to make “commits” in your project.

For more details on BuildExprs, review the technical documentation on the GraphQL console. To find the documents click the “book” icon at the top left of the page and select
