Tips

⭐️ Read mdBook version from file

How to sync a mdBook version between a Docker Compose and a GitHub Actions workflow via .env file.

Write a MDBOOK_VERSION to the .env file like the following and push it to a remote branch.

MDBOOK_VERSION=0.4.10

Next, add a step to read a mdBook version from the .env file.

    - name: Read .env
      id: mdbook-version
      run: |
        . ./.env
        echo "::set-output name=MDBOOK_VERSION::${MDBOOK_VERSION}"

    - name: Setup mdBook
      uses: peaceiris/actions-mdbook@v1
      with:
        mdbook-version: '${{ steps.mdbook-version.outputs.MDBOOK_VERSION }}'

Here is a docker-compose.yml example.

version: '3'

services:
  mdbook:
    container_name: mdbook
    image: "peaceiris/mdbook:v${MDBOOK_VERSION}"
    # image: "peaceiris/mdbook:v${MDBOOK_VERSION}-rust"  # Large image including Rust compiler
    stdin_open: true
    tty: true
    ports:
      - 3000:3000
      - 3001:3001
    volumes:
      - ${PWD}:/book
    command:
      - serve
      - --hostname
      - '0.0.0.0'
