Tryton Dockerfile

This Dockerfile will run the steps required to build a working image of Tryton. The build is based on the ubuntu base image provided by docker.


Fetch the repository from docker

docker pull openlabs/tryton

Create a new container using the image

docker run -d -P 8000 openlabs/tryton
  • The -d option indicates that the container should be run in daemon mode.
  • The -p option and it's value 8000 instructs docker to bind TCP port 8000 of the container to a dynamically allocated TCP port on all available interfaces of the host machine. See ports documentation for a more detailed explanation on how the port exposed by the container is bound to the host running the docker container.

To find the port that tryton in now bound to

docker ps

The output in the PORTS column should look like>8000/tcp. You should now be able to connect to tryton on the port 49153. (Note: Substitute the port number with what is displayed on your docker host.)

SSH into the container (Deprecated)

The container originally did support SSH but was subsequently removed. Read Why

Running from docker container

You can access the docker container and work from within it.::

docker run -i -t openlabs/tryton /bin/bash

On execution of the command a new prompt within the container should be available to you. Remember that trytond (default service) is not started automatically for you when you access the container in this manner. To start trytond, run::

trytond -c /etc/trytond.conf

More details

This is a minimalistic Docker container for Tryton which could be used in both production and developemnt. Further step if you intend on using this as a base image is below.

Extending this image

This docker image is a minimal base on which you should extend and write your own modules. The following example steps would be required to say make your setup work with postgres and install the sale module.

# Trytond 3.4 with Sale module and Postgres

FROM openlabs/tryton:3.4
MAINTAINER Sharoon Thomas <>

# Setup psycopg2 since you want to connect to postgres
# database
RUN apt-get -y -q install python-dev libpq-dev
RUN pip install psycopg2

# Setup the sale module since it is a required for this
# custom setup
RUN pip install 'trytond_sale>=3.4,<3.5'

# Copy new trytond.conf from local folder to /etc/trytond.conf
# The new trytond also has credentials to connect to the postgres
# server which is accessible elsewhere
ADD trytond.conf /etc/trytond.conf

This example can be downloaded as a gist.
