NOTE: Our images are excellent for test driving Plone, checking add-ons or as a base for development/theming.
We don't recommended them for production!

Plone

Plone is a free and open source content management system built on top of the Zope application server.

Features

  • Images for Plone 5.x and Plone 4.x
  • Enable add-ons via environment variables
  • Choose between Debian or Alpine based images
  • Built-in RelStorage support, configurable via environment variables (requires Plone 5.2+)
  • Built-in LDAP/AD support via pas.plugins.ldap (requires Plone 5.1+)

NOTE: Python 2 based Docker images are no longer supported by the Docker Official Images
If you need Python 2, you can use plone/plone:5-python2 instead of plone:5-python2.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

Prerequisites

Make sure you have Docker installed and running for your platform. You can download Docker from https://www.docker.com.

Usage

Choose either single Plone instance or ZEO cluster.

NOTE: It is inadvisable to use following configurations for production.

Standalone Plone instance

Plone standalone instances are best suited for testing Plone and development.

Download and start the latest Plone 5 container, based on Debian.

docker run -p 8080:8080 plone

This image includes EXPOSE 8080 (the Plone port), standard container linking will make it automatically available to the linked containers.

You can add a Plone Site at http://localhost:8080 - default Zope user and password are admin/admin.

By using the tags listed above a Plone container with a different version can be downloaded and started.

The following command starts a Plone 4.3 container, based on Alpine.

docker run -p 8080:8080 plone:4.3-alpine

Plone as ZEO cluster

ZEO cluster are best suited for production setups, you will need a loadbalancer.

Start ZEO server in the background

docker run -d --name=zeo plone zeo

Start 2 Plone clients (also in the background)

docker run -d --name=instance1 --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8081:8080 plone
docker run -d --name=instance2 --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8082:8080 plone

Start Plone in debug mode

You can also start Plone in debug mode (fg) by running

docker run -p 8080:8080 plone fg

Debug mode may be used with ZEO

docker run --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8080 -p 8080:8080 plone fg

For more information on how to extend this image with your own custom settings, adding more add-ons, building it or mounting volumes, please refer to our documentation.

Supported environment variables

The Plone image uses several environment variable that allow to specify a more specific setup.

For basic usage

  • ADDONS - Customize Plone via Plone add-ons using this environment variable
  • ZEO_ADDRESS - This environment variable allows you to run Plone image as a ZEO client.
  • SITE - Add Plone with this id to Data.fs on first run. If NOT provided, you'll have to manually add a Plone Site via web UI
  • VERSIONS - Use specific versions of Plone Add-on or python libraries

Run Plone and install two addons (eea.facetednavigation and collective.easyform).

docker run -p 8080:8080 -e SITE="mysite" -e ADDONS="eea.facetednavigation collective.easyform" plone

To use specific add-ons versions:

 -e ADDONS="eea.facetednavigation collective.easyform" -e VERSIONS="eea.facetednavigation=13.3 collective.easyform=2.1.0"

RestAPI:

docker run -p 8080:8080 -e SITE=plone plone

curl -H 'Accept: application/json' http://localhost:8080/plone

For advanced usage

Plone:

  • PLONE_ADDONS, ADDONS - Customize Plone via Plone add-ons using this environment variable
  • PLONE_SITE, SITE - Add Plone with this id to Data.fs on first run. If NOT provided, you'll have to manually add a Plone Site via web UI
  • PLONE_VERSIONS, VERSIONS - Use specific versions of Plone Add-on or python libraries
  • PLONE_PROFILES, PROFILES - GenericSetup profiles to include when SITE environment provided.
  • PLONE_ZCML, ZCML - Include custom Plone add-ons ZCML files
  • PLONE_DEVELOP, DEVELOP - Develop new or existing Plone add-ons
  • BUILDOUT_EXTENDS - Add configuration files that buildout should extend
  • FIND_LINKS - Add custom find-links to the buildout configuration
  • SOURCES - Add custom sources to the buildout configuration

To add custom sources, the SOURCES env var needs to be a string containing a comma-separated list of sources. This is different from the other environment variables described above, which are space-separated.

For example:

 -e SOURCES="plone.restapi = git https://github.com/plone/plone.restapi,plone.staticresources = git https://github.com/plone/plone.staticresources"

ZEO:

  • ZEO_ADDRESS - This environment variable allows you to run Plone image as a ZEO client.
  • ZEO_READ_ONLY - Run Plone as a read-only ZEO client. Defaults to off.
  • ZEO_CLIENT_READ_ONLY_FALLBACK - A flag indicating whether a read-only remote storage should be acceptable as a fallback when no writable storages are available. Defaults to false.
  • ZEO_SHARED_BLOB_DIR - Set this to on if the ZEO server and the instance have access to the same directory. Defaults to off.
  • ZEO_STORAGE - Set the storage number of the ZEO storage. Defaults to 1.
  • ZEO_CLIENT_CACHE_SIZE - Set the size of the ZEO client cache. Defaults to 128MB.
  • ZEO_PACK_KEEP_OLD - Can be set to false to disable the creation of *.fs.old files before the pack is run. Defaults to true.

CORS:

  • CORS_ALLOW_ORIGIN - Origins that are allowed access to the resource. Either a comma separated list of origins, for example http://example.net,http://mydomain.com or *. Defaults to http://localhost:3000,http://127.0.0.1:3000

  • CORS_ALLOW_CREDENTIALS - Indicates whether the resource supports user credentials in the request. Defaults to true
  • CORS_EXPOSE_HEADERS - A comma separated list of response headers clients can access, for example Content-Length,X-My-Header. Defaults to Content-Length,X-My-Header
  • CORS_ALLOW_HEADERS - A comma separated list of request headers allowed to be sent by the client, for example X-My-Header. Defaults to Accept,Authorization,Content-Type,X-Custom-Header
  • CORS_MAX_AGE - Indicates how long the results of a preflight request can be cached. Defaults to 3600

RELSTORAGE:

  • RELSTORAGE_ADAPTER_OPTIONS - A comma separated list of RelStorage adapter options to set for the plone instance (using plone.recipe.zope2instance). This is required in order to use RelStorage.

All other available environment variables match exactly with RelStorage settings, according to the following table and the settings specification available on the docs.
