Control the context of your docker builds.

Project Description

Control the context of your docker builds.

Dockerfactory makes docker build easier by using a config file (Dockerfactory.yml) instead of command line arguments to build. Dockerfactory.yml also lets you specify the build context so you can pick and choose the exact directories or files that get added to your Docker build context.


# Automatically tag built images
tag: six8/dockerfactory
# Can override the Dockerfile
dockerfile: ./
# Most `docker build` parameters work (use '_' instead of '-')
force_rm: True
memory: 100m
  # Relative directories are relative to Dockerfactory.yml
  # Must specify current directory if you want it. Dockerfactory
  # does not assume you want the current directory.
  .: /
  # Dockerfactory allows paths outside of current directory

See docker build for full set of parameters.


You can either install as a Python package with pip install dockerfactory or run as a docker image.

docker run -it --rm \
    -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
    -v ${PWD}:/project \
    six8/dockerfactory:0.1 \
Dockerfactory building:
  With command: docker build --force-rm --memory 100m --no-cache --tag six8/dockerfactory:0.1 -
  With Dockerfile: /project/Dockerfile
  With context:
    - /project: /
