It supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object-oriented, and imperative. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management.

How to use this image

Create a Dockerfile in your Ruby app project

FROM ruby:2.1-onbuild
CMD ["./your-daemon-or-script.rb"]

Put this file in the root of your app, next to the Gemfile.

This image includes multiple ONBUILD triggers which should be all you need to bootstrap most applications. The build will COPY . /usr/src/app and RUN bundle install.

You can then build and run the Ruby image:

docker build -t my-ruby-app .
docker run -it --name my-running-script my-ruby-app

Generate a Gemfile.lock

The onbuid tag expects a Gemfile.lock in your app directory. This docker run will help you generate one. Run it in the root of your app, next to the Gemfile:

docker run --rm -v "$(pwd)":/usr/src/app -w /usr/src/app ruby:2.1 bundle install

Run a single Ruby script

For many simple, single file projects, you may find it inconvenient to write a complete Dockerfile. In such cases, you can run a Ruby script by using the Ruby Docker image directly:

docker run -it --rm --name my-running-script -v "$(pwd)":/usr/src/myapp -w /usr/src/myapp ruby:2.1 ruby your-daemon-or-script.rb
