Socker = Sitecore
❤️ Docker (now with Visual Studio 2017)
This is the continuation of https://github.com/pbering/Socker where the new Docker integration in Visual Studio 2017 is used instead.
Is is now possible to run Sitecore completely in Docker natively, you don't have to mess around with databases, IIS or anything, you don't even have to have SQL Server or IIS installed on your machine.
This repository shows how a solution could be wired up for development with the following features:
- Databases is persisted between restarts
- Serialization and log folders are mounted with volumes.
and also the Visual Studio 2017, out-of-the-box docker features like:
- Remote debugging, auto attaching to running containers with F5
- Build, re-build, clear builds/stops/starts compose services (containers)
- New in Visual Studio 2017 15.5: By default, Visual Studio will automatically pull, build, and run the necessary container images in the background when you open a project that has Docker support. You can disable this via the Automatically start containers in background setting in Visual Studio.
- Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
- Docker for Windows
- Visual Studio 2017 15.5 or later
NOTE: Base images are build and consumed locally in this example, but in a real life scenario you would also push to an remote private repository like hub.docker.com, quay.io or an internal one, so that images can be shared within your organization. Unfortunately it has to be private repositories due to Sitecore licensing terms so we can't share images in the community.
Using Sitecore 8.2 rev. 161221
Copy Sitecore 8.2 rev. 161221.zip into "/images/sitecore-82rev161221"
Copy license.xml into "/images/sitecore-82rev161221/Sitecore/Data"
docker build -t sitecore:8.2.161221 .\images\sitecore-82rev161221
Copy database files from Sitecore 8.2 rev. 161221.zip into "/data/databases"
- Open solution...
- Make sure the "docker-compose" project is your startup project
- CTRL+F5 to run or set breakpoint and F5, Visual Studio will open your default browser automatically when the containers are ready
- To continuously update changes from your web project output to the running container, you need to start the watcher script (you can get the container id/name from the build output or
docker container ps):
docker exec CONTAINER powershell watch
NOTE: Latest Docker tooling in Visual Studio overrides ENTRYPOINT (see https://github.com/Microsoft/DockerTools/issues/9) so it is not possible to start the watcher script automatically when the container starts anymore.
To stop everything again just hit "Build -> Clear".
