I have been using a few shell scripts for turbocharging development using Docker and today I have released the first version of a simple tool I call “dev”. Usage is very very simple.
$ dev up Starting up container for spike spike-dev (43c5c1) running! To use this container please attach to it with: $ docker attach spike-dev $ docker attach spike-dev docker:dev:spike ~ -->
I have made a simple asciinema recording describing the process of setting up and tearing down these containers. The development environments have the code you are working on mounted to ~/dev in the container.
The containers are defined by a simple manifest file in yaml:
base: xena/base repopath: github.com/Xe/test golang: false ssh: true user: xena projname: test
Right now dev is a very immature tool and currently Works For Me ™. If you have any issues with it or questions about it, please open an issue on its GitHub issue tracker.
Thanks for taking a look at it and please let me know if it works for you too!
