Container for Alpine Linux + Python3 + AWS-CLI
This image serves as the base container for applications / services that require AWSCLI from the terminal or use Boto3 programmatically using Python3, includes Pip and a few tools like eb cli for managing Elastic Beanstalk, and cfn-lint cfn-flip, and sceptre for cloudformation.
The image is tagged respectively for the following architectures,
- x86_64 (retagged as the
non-x86_64 builds have embedded binfmt_misc support and contain the qemu-user-static binary that allows for running it also inside an x86_64 environment that has it.
Get the Image
Pull the image for your architecture it's already available from Docker Hub.
# make pull docker pull woahbase/alpine-awscli:x86_64
If you want to run images for other architectures, you will need to have binfmt support configured for your machine. multiarch, has made it easy for us containing that into a docker container.
# make regbinfmt docker run --rm --privileged multiarch/qemu-user-static:register --reset
Without the above, you can still run the image that is made for your architecture, e.g for an x86_64 machine..
This images already has a user
alpine configured to drop
privileges to the passed
PGID which is ideal if its used
to run in non-root mode. That way you only need to specify the
values at runtime and pass the
-u alpine if need be. (run
in your terminal to see your own
Mount your aws configuration inside the container at
/home/alpine/.aws, and run the command
aws under the user
alpine. You can also mount any directory (default: the current
/home/alpine to launch scripts from
make starts a shell.
# make docker run --rm -it \ --name docker_awscli --hostname awscli \ -e PGID=1000 -e PUID=1000 \ -u alpine \ -v data:/home/alpine --workdir /home/alpine \ woahbase/alpine-awscli:x86_64 \ bash
Stop the container with a timeout, (defaults to 2 seconds)
# make stop docker stop -t 2 docker_awscli
Removes the container, (always better to stop it first and
only when needed most)
# make rm docker rm -f docker_awscli
Restart the container with
# make restart docker restart docker_awscli
Get a shell inside a already running container,
# make debug docker exec -it docker_awscli /bin/bash
set user or login as root,
# make rdebug docker exec -u root -it docker_awscli /bin/bash
To check logs of a running container in real time
# make logs docker logs -f docker_awscli
If you have the repository access, you can clone and build the image yourself for your own system, and can push after.
git clone https://github.com/woahbase/alpine-awscli cd alpine-awscli
You can always skip installing make but you will have to type the whole docker commands then instead of using the sweet make targets.
You need to have binfmt_misc configured in your system to be able to build images for other architectures.
Otherwise to locally build the image for your system.
ARCH defaults to
x86_64, need to be explicit when building
for other architectures.]
# make ARCH=x86_64 build # sets up binfmt if not x86_64 docker build --rm --compress --force-rm \ --no-cache=true --pull \ -f ./Dockerfile_x86_64 \ --build-arg DOCKERSRC=woahbase/alpine-python3:x86_64 \ --build-arg PGID=1000 \ --build-arg PUID=1000 \ -t woahbase/alpine-awscli:x86_64 \ .
To check if its working..
# make ARCH=x86_64 test docker run --rm -it \ --name docker_awscli --hostname awscli \ -e PGID=1000 -e PUID=1000 \ woahbase/alpine-awscli:x86_64 \ aws --version
And finally, if you have push access,
# make ARCH=x86_64 push docker push woahbase/alpine-awscli:x86_64
