GoCD development environment in docker

This is development environment for GoCD built using Dojo and official scripts used by the CI agents at

This image allows to build and test GoCD. It can be used to build your fork or locally test a PR.


  1. Install docker, if you haven't already.
  2. Install Dojo, it is a self-contained binary, so just place it somewhere on the PATH. On Linux:
wget -O dojo${DOJO_VERSION}/dojo_linux_amd64
sudo mv dojo /usr/local/bin
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/dojo
  1. Checkout and cd into gocd project directory, then start docker container:
git clone
cd gocd
dojo --image=kudulab/gocd-dojo

This will enter a docker container with all tools needed for building gocd. Your local copy of gocd is in current directory /dojo/work.

In order to build GoCD, you can use gradlew, for example to build debian packages and generic zip distribution:

./gradlew clean serverPackageDeb agentPackageDeb agentGenericZip versionFile

You will find the artifacts in installers/target/distributions.
