Getting Started

Get the image via

    $ docker pull networld/docker-webapp

    or build from source

    $ IMAGE_NAME=networld/docker-webapp
    $ docker build --rm -t ${IMAGE_NAME} .

Start a container with:

    $ docker run --rm -p -d -v /path/to/ruby_on_rails_app:/webapp ${IMAGE_NAME}
    $ curl # Test with curl or even better your favorite browser

Boot Script

If available the script under the root directory of the web application is executed during boot time (/webapp/ This script can be used to setup additional components or tasks, e.g. adding cronjobs or starting background workers.

Important: Assure that the script is idempotent. That means if executed multiple times it does not change the result. Also keep in mind that the script is executed on each boot and before the web server nginx is started.
