Lab : Build a docker image for Instavote frontend vote app
Voteapp is a app written in python. Its a simple, web based application which serves as a frontend for Instavote project. As a devops engineer, you have been tasked with building an image for vote app and publish it to docker hub registry.
Approach 1: Building docker image for voteapp manually
on the host
git clone https://github.com/schoolofdevops/vote docker container run -idt --name build -p 8000:80 python:2.7-alpine sh cd vote docker cp . build:/app docker exec -it build sh
inside the container
cd /app pip install -r requirements.txt gunicorn app:app -b 0.0.0.0:80
Validate by accessing http://IPADDRESS:8000
on the host
docker diff build docker container commit build <docker_id>/vote:v1 docker login docker image push <docker_id>/vote:v1
Approach 2: Building image with Dockerfile
Change into vote directory which containts the source code. This assumes you have already cloned the repo. If not, clone it from https://github.com/schoolofdevops/vote
cd vote ls app.py requirements.txt static templates
Add/create Dockerfile the the same directory (vote) with the following content,
FROM python:2.7-alpine WORKDIR /app COPY . . RUN pip install -r requirements.txt EXPOSE 80 CMD gunicorn app:app -b 0.0.0.0:80
Build image using,
docker build -t <docker_id>/vote:v2 .
docker image ls docker image history <docker_id>/vote:v2 docker image history <docker_id>/vote:v1 docker container run -idt -P <docker_id>/vote:v2 docker ps
Check by connecting to your host:port to validate if vote web application shows up.
Once validated, tag and push
docker image tag <docker_id>/vote:v2 <docker_id>/vote:latest docker login docker push <docker_id>/vote
