Application samples for project development kickoff
Link to the original post on docker blog: https://www.docker.com/blog/awesome-compose-app-samples-for-project-dev-kickoff
Installing Docker and docker-compose
I usually use the following steps to get docker and docker-compose installed:
curl https://get.docker.com|sudo bash #installs docker sudo usermod -aG docker $your_user #add your username to docker group sudo curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.25.4/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
1.25.4 is current stable release of docker-compose for now
Updated instructions can be found here for docker and here for docker-compose.
To Clone the repository localy:
git clone https://github.com/docker/awesome-compose.git cd awesome-compose
At the root of each sample there is the docker-compose.yml. It contains the definition and the structure of the application and instructions on how to wire the components of the application.
To start a sample stack with nginx, a flask app and mysql database, you can do the following
cd nginx-flask-mysql docker-compose up -d
Check there are three containers running, one for each service:
Since the 80 port is mapped to the host using the stack, you can use curl to test the application:
This will work with most of the examples out of the box
Modify and update the application sample
Once you made modification to the sample, you can restart the services
docker-compose restart backend #to restart the service named backend
If you have made modifications in the Dockerfile, you will need to do the following to bring the whole stack down, and build the docker image again.
docker-compose down docker-compose up -d --build
