Podlike scripts

Command line shell wrapper scripts for common helpers of Podlike.


A shell script to invoke the template generator command of the application.


  podtemplate FILE [FILE...]

      Loads the given source stack yaml FILEs and
      transforms them using the templates defined in them.

  podtemplate [-h|--help]

      Prints this help string for usage.

By default, the latest version of the image is used, but can be overridden with the PODLIKE_VERSION environment variable.

Install it as:

$ curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rycus86/podlike/master/scripts/podtemplate.sh | tee /usr/local/bin/podtemplate && chmod +x /usr/local/bin/podtemplate

You may need to add sudo in front of tee and chmod, like:

$ curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rycus86/podlike/master/scripts/podtemplate.sh | sudo tee /usr/local/bin/podtemplate && sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/podtemplate


You can also use:

$ podtemplate template ...

This basically ends up doing the same as above.

In the end, the generated results are used for deploying Swarm stacks, so the podtemplate deploy command can come in handy for automation:

$ podtemplate deploy ...  # use `docker stack deploy` args

This sub-command transforms the input templates, then deploys the result stack in Swarm.

Usage:	podtemplate deploy [OPTIONS] STACK

Loads the given templated YAML files, transforms them,
then deploys a new stack or updates an existing stack.

  -c, --compose-file strings   Path to a Compose file
      --prune                  Prune services that are no longer referenced
      --resolve-image string   Query the registry to resolve image digest and supported platforms ("always"|"changed"|"never") (default "always")
      --with-registry-auth     Send registry authentication details to Swarm agents


The template generator runs in a container, with the current working directory mounted and set as the working directory within. Because of this, paths pointing outside of this area will most probably not work, like:

$ podtemplate ../../outside/of/working/area /var/different/absolute/path
