Zephyr Docker Images

We have 2 images:

  • CI Image: This is the image used in CI, we try to keep this self-contained. The image only has the minimal set of software needed for CI operation.
  • Developer Image: Based on the base CI image, we provide additional tools that can be used for development anywhere.

Developer Docker Image

This docker image can be built with

docker build -f Dockerfile.user --build-arg UID=$(id -u) --build-arg GID=$(id -g) -t zephyr-build:v<tag> .

and can be used for development and building zephyr samples and tests, for example:

docker run -ti -v <path to zephyr workspace>:/workdir zephyr-build:v<tag>

Then, follow the steps below to build a sample application:

cd samples/hello_world
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DBOARD=qemu_x86 ..
make run

The image is also available on docker.io, so you can skip the build step and directly pull from docker.io and build:

docker run -ti -v $HOME/Work/zephyrproject:/workdir \
docker.io/zephyrprojectrtos/zephyr-build:latest

The environment is set and ready to go, no need to source zephyr-env.sh.

We have two toolchains installed:

  • Zephyr SDK
  • GNU Arm Embedded Toolchain

To switch, set ZEPHYR_TOOLCHAIN_VARIANT.

Further it is possible to run native POSIX samples that require a display and check the display output via a VNC client. To allow the VNC client to connect to the docker instance port 5900 needs to be forwarded to the host, for example:

docker run -ti -p 5900:5900 -v <path to zephyr workspace>:/workdir zephyr-build:v<tag>

Then, follow the steps below to build a display sample application for the native POSIX board:

cd samples/display/cfb
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DBOARD=native_posix -GNinja ..
ninja run

The result can be observed by connecting a VNC client to localhost at port 5900, the default VNC password is zephyr.

For example on a Ubuntu host system:

vncviewer localhost:5900
