TeXBin is a service for posting and serving TeX documents as PDFs. It's also a simple application that I've put together in order to study Docker.
Disclaimer: This app is just a proof of concept, so it's not really made for production use!
- Easily deployed as a Docker container
- Automatic partition of uploaded files for fast disk lookups
- Configurable via the
Docker + docker-compose
docker-composee up in order to build the required images and start the
containers in the proper order. This command will take several minutes to complete.
Go grab a coffee.
After it's done, run
docker-compose ps to make sure all containers are up and running.
Then, visit http://localhost to open the application.
At this point, feel free to change some code and refresh the browser to see the changes right away, without the need to reload the container yourself.
Docker (in the cloud)
Here's how to do it manualy so you can automate the process however you want.
First, clone this project in your server and run
docker build -t texbin .
in order to build the base image.
After that, go to
config/docker/texbin_deploy and change whatever config
you want. Then, run
docker build -t texbin_<env> . to build the image
tailored for the environment
Do the same procedure in
config/docker/nginx and build the image with
docker build -t texbin_nginx ..
Finally, it's time to start the containers:
$ sudo docker run --name texbin_mongodb -d mongo $ sudo docker run --name texbin_<env>_1 -d --link texbin_mongodb:mongodb texbin_prod $ sudo docker run --name texbin_nginx_1 -d --link texbin_<env>_1:app --volumes-from texbin_<env>_1 -p 80:80 texbin_nginx
docker ps to make sure all containers are up and running. Then, visit
http://your-server-ip to open the application.
