Command-line options

You can accept the default values during the push and you will get a valid application deployed. However, if you wanted to change something, the following command-line options are explained.

Would you like to deploy from the current directory? [Yn]: 

The default is yes. If you type n for no, then you will be prompted for the deployment path. The path is relative to your current directory. One way to tell if you enter a path that does not exist is that you will be asked to enter a number of questions manually, such as the application type and runtime environment.

Detected a Sinatra Application, is this correct? [Yn]: 

If you choose no, then you will be presented with a list of application types. It is a numbered list so you will just need to find the correct type and enter the number. The list of options includes Grails, Standalone, Node, Sinatra, PHP, Rails, and many others.
