Create and Use Docker Images¶
This section will show how to take a Dockerfile project, build it and push to Docker Hub.
You might have many uses for Docker images in your normal work; but you'll also want to curate Docker images for your Concourse pipelines. Your Concourse tasks will be a lot faster if any dependencies are preinstalled on the base image, rather than you downloading them each time from the Internet. Your team might start curating a set of Docker images to be used by all your pipelines.
At Stark & Wayne we maintain our pipeline's Docker images at https://github.com/starkandwayne/dockerfiles/ and convert them into various Docker images with our pipeline https://ci.starkandwayne.com/teams/main/pipelines/docker-images?groups=*
pipeline.yml and Dockerfile example are found at:
Define a docker image¶
This section's subfolder
docker contains a
Dockerfile and a simple
FROM busybox ADD hello-world /bin/hello-world ENV NAME=world ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/hello-world"]
Create a docker container image¶
We could manually create a docker image and push it to Docker Hub. But since we have Concourse we will use it instead.
The purpose of this lesson's
pipeline.yml is to
resources: - name: tutorial type: git source: uri: https://github.com/drnic/concourse-tutorial.git branch: develop - name: hello-world-docker-image type: docker-image source: email: ((docker-hub-email)) username: ((docker-hub-username)) password: ((docker-hub-password)) repository: ((docker-hub-username))/concourse-tutorial-hello-world jobs: - name: publish public: true serial: true plan: - get: tutorial - put: hello-world-docker-image params: build: tutorial/tutorials/miscellaneous/docker-images/docker
You can see there are parameters that are required.
Parameters and Credhub¶
If you are using
bucc then use
credhub to store them.
credhub set -n /concourse/main/push-docker-image/docker-hub-email -t value -v [email protected] credhub set -n /concourse/main/push-docker-image/docker-hub-username -t value -v you credhub set -n /concourse/main/push-docker-image/docker-hub-password -t value -v yourpassword
Since your Docker Hub credentials are probably common amongst many pipelines, you can register them within your Concourse
main team, rather than just the pipeline:
credhub set -n /concourse/main/docker-hub-email -t value -v [email protected] credhub set -n /concourse/main/docker-hub-username -t value -v you credhub set -n /concourse/main/docker-hub-password -t value -v yourpassword
Then setup the pipeline and run the
fly -t bucc set-pipeline -p push-docker-image -c pipeline.yml -n fly -t bucc unpause-pipeline -p push-docker-image fly -t bucc trigger-job -j push-docker-image/publish -w
The output will include:
Successfully built c987adeb0ff8 Successfully tagged you/concourse-tutorial-hello-world:latest The push refers to a repository [docker.io/you/concourse-tutorial-hello-world]
Using the Docker image¶
We can now use the Docker image as the base image for tasks.
- task: run config: platform: linux image_resource: type: docker-image source: repository: ((docker-hub-username))/concourse-tutorial-hello-world run: path: /bin/hello-world args:  params: NAME: ((docker-hub-username))
