depends 'docker', '~> 2.0'to your cookbook’s metadata.rb
docker_service 'default' do action [:create, :start] end docker_image 'busybox' do action :pull end docker_container 'an echo server' do repo 'busybox' port '1234:1234' command "nc -ll -p 1234 -e /bin/cat" end
Here’s a quick example of pulling the latest image and running a container with exposed ports.
# Pull latest image docker_image 'nginx' do tag 'latest' action :pull end # Run container exposing ports docker_container 'my_nginx' do repo 'nginx' tag 'latest' port '80:80' binds [ '/some/local/files/:/etc/nginx/conf.d' ] host_name 'www' domain_name 'computers.biz' env 'FOO=bar' subscribes :redeploy, 'docker_image[nginx]' end
