Sinker

Go Report Card GitHub release

logo

sinker syncs container images from one registry to another. This is useful in cases when you rely on images that exist in a public container registry, but need to pull from a private registry.

Images can be sync'd either by using The image manifest or via the command line.

See the example folder for more details on the produced files.

Installation

go install github.com/plexsystems/sinker@latest

Releases are also provided in the releases tab on GitHub.

The image manifest

The target section

target:
  host: mycompany.com
  repository: myteam

The target section is where the images will be synced to. The above yaml would sync all images to the myteam repository hosted at mycompany.com (mycompany.com/myteam/...)

The images section

target:
  host: mycompany.com
  repository: myteam
sources:
- repository: coreos/prometheus-operator
  host: quay.io
  tag: v0.40.0
- repository: super/secret
  tag: v0.3.0
  auth:
    username: DOCKER_USER_ENV
    password: DOCKER_PASSWORD_ENV
- repository: nginx
  digest: sha256:bbda10abb0b7dc57cfaab5d70ae55bd5aedfa3271686bace9818bba84cd22c29

Optional host defaults to Docker Hub

In both the target and sources section, the host field is optional. When no host is set, the host is assumed to be Docker Hub.

Auth

All auth is handled by looking at the clients Docker auth. If the client can perform a docker push or docker pull, sinker will be able to as well.

Optionally, the auth section allows you to set the names of environment variables that will be used for creating basic auth to the registry. This could be useful in pipelines where auth is stored in environment variables.

Sync behavior

If the target registry supports nested paths, the entire source repository will be pushed to the target. For example, the prometheus-operator would be pushed to:

mycompany.com/myteam/coreos/prometheus-operator:v0.40.0

Registries that support nested paths: Azure Container Registry (ACR), Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR), Google Container Registry (GCR)

If the target registry does not support nested paths, only the base path of the source will be pushed to the target registry. For example, the prometheus-operator would be pushed to:

mycompany.com/myteam/prometheus-operator:v0.40.0

Registries that do not support nested paths: Docker Hub, GitHub Container Registry, Quay.io

Demo

An example run of the sinker pull command which pulls all images specified in the image manifest.
