Kong in Docker Compose
This is the official Docker Compose template for Kong.
What is Kong?
You can find the official Docker distribution for Kong at https://store.docker.com/images/kong.
How to use this template
This Docker Compose template provisions a Kong container with a Postgres database, plus a nginx load-balancer and Consul for service discovery. After running the template, the
nginx-lb load-balancer will be the entrypoint to Kong.
To run this template execute:
$ docker-compose up
To scale Kong (ie, to three instances) execute:
$ docker-compose scale kong=3
Kong will be available through the
nginx-lb instance on port
8001. You can customize the template with your own environment variables or datastore configuration.
Kong's documentation can be found at getkong.org/docs.
