Dockerfile creates a sandboxed, runnable Nikola environment based on the latest official Arch
package produced by the Nikola team. This works in docker even if your
host system is not running Arch.
This is tested with the following software:
- Nikola 7.7.2
- docker 1.8.0 (running on Ubuntu 14.04)
Since it's main dependency is docker, it should run on any platform with docker installed (e.g. Windows, OS X). It may or may not work with earlier versions of docker. To install docker on your system, see the official docker installation instructions.
To build the docker image:
$ docker build -t rbrewer123/nikola github.com/rbrewer123/docker_nikola
You can see your new image with this command:
$ docker images
go script from github like this:
$ git clone https://github.com/rbrewer123/docker_nikola
Now update the
docker_nikola/nikola script to use your correct
gid. This avoids problems with
files being owned by root or other permissions problems that often occur
when using docker in this manner.
nikola from within the container, simply run the
$ docker_nikola/nikola help
The only limitation I know of so far is using Nikola`s
I'm using Nikola with Amazon S3, and the
s3cmd I use to deploy my site
is not within the Nikola container. Since it's a single command to deploy
my site, I have that within a separate shell script.
