Differences Between This Dockerfile and the Dockerfile Shipped With Musicbot

That Dockerfile mounts an existin directly, and requires you to edit configuration files directly. This Dockerfile allows you to specify configuration values via the enivonrment, which will then be written directly into the configuration file within the container.

The end result is that this container will have no external side-effects. All changes made and packages downloaded will stay within the container and go away when the container is destroyed.

BONUS: The file config/autoplaylist.txt.IN will support comments. e.g., you can have lines like this:

# Star Trek: The Motion Picture (Score Suite) - YouTube
# [NEW] Undertale OST - Hopes and Dreams Epic Rock - YouTube
# Undertale Remix 🎵 Varien - Heart of the Core (Core Theme) - GameChops - YouTube
# Waters of Megalovania (ORIGINAL) - YouTube

Yeah I like Undertale. <3

Anyway, the entrypoint.sh script will script those comments before feeding that file to Jukebox, so feel free to add comments to your copy of that file as you see fit.

Got any interesting playlists? Send them my way! I may add support for selecting a playlist in a future release. :-)


On Amazon Elastic Container Service

Yes, this will work in ECS. I wrote up a post explaining how to set this up in ECS.

Via Docker Hub

docker pull dmuth1/musicbot
docker run \
	-e TOKEN=token \
	-e OWNER_ID=owner_id \
	-e TEXT_CHANNEL=text_channel_id \
	-e VOICE_CHANNEL=voice_channel_id \
	[-e GRANT_TO_ROLES=role_id ] \

Or... clone this repo and run via docker-compose

git clone https://github.com/dmuth/musicbot-docker.git
cd musicbot-docker
cp docker-compose.yml.example docker-compose.yml
vim docker-compose.yml # Edit this file and include the API token, and owner and channel info
docker compose build && docker-compose up

Where to find this In The Wild

The Musicbot is regularly run on Anthrocon's Discord Server. Feel free to drop on by!
