Docker descriptions for running geminabox.

The gem-in-a-container image runs the rack application, and the gem-in-a-container-nginx image provides a reverse proxy that can but put in front of the rack app to achieve some caching.

Quick start

Running with Galley

$ npm install -g galley-cli
$ git clone https://github.com/adamvduke/gem-in-a-container.git
$ cd gem-in-a-container
$ galley run gem-in-a-container-nginx.dev

Running with Docker Compose

  1. Install Compose
  2. docker-compose up

Usage

The fastest way to get started is to run the container straight from docker hub:

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Configuration options

Data directory options

Gems are downloaded to a volume in the container at /srv/geminabox/data. You can map the volume to your docker host to preserve downloaded gems between runs.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -v /path/to/host/data-dir:/srv/geminabox/data adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

The path /srv/geminabox/data can also be overridden with the environment variable DATA_DIR.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -e DATA_DIR=/srv/data -v /path/to/host/data-dir:/srv/data adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Application server options

The default ruby application server is puma, but can be overridden with the environment variable APP_SERVER. Available options supported by the entrypoint are: passenger, puma, thin, and unicorn.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -e APP_SERVER=unicorn adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Geminabox options

Geminabox supports several configuration options which can be set through environment variables.

Setting RUBY_GEMS_PROXY to a value other than true will cause geminabox to not fetch missing gems from rubygems.org.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -e RUBY_GEMS_PROXY=false adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Setting ALLOW_REMOTE_FAILURE to a value other than true will cause geminabox to raise errors if rubygems is not available.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -e ALLOW_REMOTE_FAILURE=false adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Setting BUILD_LEGACY to a value other than false will cause geminabox to build legacy rubygems indexes for old versions of rubygems.

docker run -it --rm -p 9180:9180 -e BUILD_LEGACY=true adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Using gem-in-a-container-nginx as a reverse proxy

docker run -it -d --name gem-in-a-container -p 9180:9180 -v /path/to/host/data-dir:/srv/geminabox/data adamvduke/gem-in-a-container
docker run -it --rm --link gem-in-a-container -p 5000:5000 --volumes-from gem-in-a-container adamvduke/gem-in-a-container-nginx

Building the images yourself

gem-in-a-container

Build the image based on what's in the repo on github.

docker build -t adamvduke/gem-in-a-container github.com/adamvduke/gem-in-a-container

Build the image based on a local clone of the repo

docker build -t adamvduke/gem-in-a-container .

gem-in-a-container-nginx

Build the image based on what's in the repo on github.

docker build -t adamvduke/gem-in-a-container-nginx github.com/adamvduke/gem-in-a-container -f Dockerfile.nginx

Build the image based on a local clone of the repo

docker build -t adamvduke/gem-in-a-container-nginx -f Dockerfile.nginx .
