WeChat has become the mainstream social network mobile applications in China. Based on the WeChat API, there are many attached mobile applications. Cloud Foundry is a lightweight mainstream PaaS platform. In this paper, we studied how to develop and deploy WeChat applications on the Cloud Foundry platform to achieve lightweight development and deployment. The implementation of a product maintenance system proves the effectiveness of our deployment method with WeChat and Cloud Foundry.
