A Buildout recipe to generate a Dockerfile for Birdhouse applications.

Project description


birdhousebuilder.recipe.docker is a Buildout recipe to generate a Dockerfile for Birdhouse applications.

Birdhousebuilder recipes are used to build Web Processing Service components of the Birdhouse project. All Birdhousebuilder recipes need an existing Anaconda installation.


The recipe requires that Anaconda is already installed. It assumes that Anaconda is installed at the default location in your home directory ~/anaconda. Otherwise you need to set the Buildout option anaconda-home.

The recipe will generate a Dockerfile for your application. You can find the Dockerfile in the root folder of the application.

The recipe depends on birdhousebuilder.recipe.conda.

Supported options

This recipe supports the following options:


Buildout option with the root folder of the Anaconda installation. Default: $HOME/anaconda.


The docker image name. Default is ubuntu.


The docker image version. Default is latest.


The name of the maintainer.

Example usage

The following example buildout.cfg generates a Dockerfile for Ubuntu 14.04:

parts = docker

anaconda-home = /home/myself/anaconda

recipe = birdhousebuilder.recipe.docker
image-name = ubuntu
image-version = 14:04
maintainer = Generated by MyApp
