Jekyll in a Docker Container

Why not to use docker pull jekyll/jekyll or docker pull bretfisher/jekyll-serve?

  • Instead of mounting local folder as bretfisher/jekyll-serve I wanted to pull files from git repository of my choice.

So, this does that.

I am using docker container to deploy develop branch of my blog to preview changes in a cloud before merging it to master. once changes tested in azure container instance and merged, github pages picking them up and publishing to gtrifonov.com. I want to be able to publish and preview post from my phone when i am away from my dev box. Idea is to have git webhook triggered on git push and deploy image to azure for preview.

Running your jekyll site locally and deploying to Azure Container Service

Building and running container locally. Change docker-compose.yml file to insert your git repo url an change container name, branch, ports if needed.

docker-compose up -d --build

Lookup logs locally and at this point you can preview your website locally

docker logs {LOCAL_CONTAINER_NAME} --follow

Assuming you have your azure registry created this command will publish image. You don't need to rebuild image and publish image with every new blog post (git push)

docker push {YOUR_REGISTRY_FQDN}/jekyll-serve:latest

Create container instance in azure

az container create --resource-group {YOUR_RESOURCE_GROUP} --name {YOUR_CONTAINER_NAME} --image {YOUR_REGISTRY_FQDN}/jekyll-serve --cpu 1 --memory 1 --registry-username {YOUR_USERNAME} --registry-password {YOUR_PASSWORD} --dns-name-label {YOUR_SUBDOMAIN} --ports 80

See a staus of your container

az container logs --resource-group {YOUR_RESOURCE_GROUP} --name {YOUR_CONTAINER_NAME} --follow

Once testing is done you can delete container to free resources

az container delete --resource-group {YOUR_RESOURCE_GROUP} --name {YOUR_CONTAINER_NAME}
