Launcher for Python web applications.
The warpdrive project provide the scripts for implementing a build and deployment system for Python web applications using Docker. The scripts can be integrated into a suitable Docker base image to provide a more structured way for incorporating a Python web application into a Docker image, with warpdrive doing all the hard work of co-ordinating the build of the Docker image containing your application. The warpdrive scripts will also handle the startup of the Python web application when the container is run.
As well as basic support for working with Docker directly, the warpdrive project also provides assemble and run scripts suitable for use with the Source-to-Image (S2I) project. This allows a Docker image to be enabled as a S2I builder for constructing Docker images for your application without you needing to even know how to build Docker containers. Any S2I enabled Docker image would also be able to be used as a S2I builder with any Docker based PaaS with S2I support built in, such as OpenShift.
For additional documentation on warpdrive including examples of use see:
For examples of Docker images which incorporate the warpdrive scripts see:
If you would like to try warpdrive with OpenShift, but would like to use the default OpenShift Python images as a base, templates are provided which use the standard Python images, but where the existing S2I scripts will be overridden. To load these templates use the command:
oc create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/GrahamDumpleton/warpdrive/master/openshift/warpdrive-python.json
This will create the following templates in OpenShift:
warpdrive-python27 warpdrive-python33 warpdrive-python34 warpdrive-python35
