More information

Pre-built images are available on Docker Hub. The command docker-compose is documented quite detailed there too. To manually build the Docker image locally, please switch from using image to using the build section in the docker-compose.yml file and run the follwing command:

docker-compose build

Further Configuration

The image provided here contains an example configuration. To allow the local editing of configuration files you can bind mount the Goobi configuration directory /opt/digiverso/goobi/config to a local directory containing the configuration files, see the comments in docker-compose.yml. The image currently does not contain any Goobi plugins. You can bind mount the plugins directory (/opt/digiverso/goobi/plugins) to a local directory containing compiled Goobi plugins.
