Copies files from the host's
/home/dokku/<APP>/DOKKU_FILES directory to the
/app directory of a dokku image before the image is released.
Only affects deploys where buildpacks are in use. Files are not available during the build step.
- dokku 0.4.0+
- docker 1.6.x
# on 0.4.x dokku plugin:install https://github.com/dokku/dokku-copy-files-to-image.git copy-files-to-image
To use, create a
DOKKU_FILES directory in
/home/dokku/<APP>. For instance, if we have an application called
mkdir -p /home/dokku/lolipop/DOKKU_FILES
Next, add your files to that directory. You will also need to ensure the
dokku user has ownership and read access to these files:
chown -R dokku:dokku /home/dokku/lolipop/DOKKU_FILES chmod -R +r /home/dokku/lolipop/DOKKU_FILES
Once that is done, any deploy should automatically add the file to the
/app directory of the image, and the files will be available during container runs.
