CiviCRM Buildkit Docker Image
Builds a completely self-contained container that runs CiviCRM Buildkit via MySQL, Apache, PHP and SSH in a Debian Stretch container. It manages services using runit.
The civicrm-buildkit directory is available on the host and in the container.
Steps to create
Note: this is not a normal Docker file that pulls an image from the Docker network. It's generally not a good idea to pull code blindly from the Internet.
Instead, create your own base image by running these commands AS ROOT (adjust the timezone if you want):
temp=$(mktemp -d) apt-get install debootstrap export LC_ALL=C && debootstrap --variant=minbase --include=apt-utils,less,iputils-ping,iproute2,vim,locales,libterm-readline-gnu-perl,dnsutils,procps stretch "$temp" http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ echo "America/New_York" > "$temp/etc/timezone" chroot "$temp" /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure --frontend noninteractive tzdata echo "deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main" > "$temp/etc/apt/sources.list.d/security.list" echo "deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main" > "$temp/etc/apt/sources.list.d/update.list" echo "Upgrading" chroot "$temp" apt-get update chroot "$temp" apt-get -y dist-upgrade # Make all servers America/New_York echo "Importing into docker" cd "$temp" && tar -c . | docker import - my-stretch cd echo "Removing temp directory" rm -rf "$temp"
For the remaining steps, I assume you are in the directory containing the Dockerfile.
Copy your ssh public key to your current directory:
cp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub .
This file will be copied to the container's authorized_ids file so you can ssh in without a password.
Next, create the directory that will be mounted in the container and hold the buildkit data.
mkdir -p civicrm
Build the civicrm-buildkit image:
docker build -t civicrm-buildkit ./
Now, create the container and run it:
docker create -v "$(pwd)/civicrm:/var/www/civicrm" -e "DOCKER_UID=$UID" \ -p 2222:22 -p 8001:8001 --name civicrm-buildkit civicrm-buildkit docker start civicrm-buildkit
You have full access to the civicrm-buildkit directory from the host so you can git pull and push as needed.
The basic workflow
- ssh into the container (
ssh -p 2222 www-data@localhost)
- When running for the first time, set things up with:
- run all buildkit commands to create the sites you want:
civibuild create mycivi --type drupal-clean --url http://localhost:8001 --admin-pass admin
- Learn more civibuild commands
- Then, work via your host computer:
- access your sites via a browser on your host computer (http://localhost:8001).
- modify code via your editor on your host computer via the civicrm-buildkit directory
- add git repositories, etc via your host computer
All maintenance tasks should be run while you are in the container via ssh.
Note: if you destroy or --force create, you will lose any un-committed code modifications and un-pushed git commits. Be sure to commit and push first! After re-creating you will need to add your git repositories all over again.
- Destroy and start over:
civibuild create mycivi --force
civibuild destroy mycivi
civibuild create mycivi --type drupal-clean --civi-ver master --url http://localhost:8001 --admin-pass admin
- Update civibuild code:
All tests should be run while you are in the container via ssh.
The testing database will be setup by default.
Run a test with (for example):
cd /var/www/civicrm/civicrm-buildkit/build/mycivi/sites/all/modules/civicrm env CIVICRM_UF=UnitTests phpunit4 ./tests/phpunit/api/v3/CaseTest.php --filter testCaseCreate
