Using Custom Docker Images on Bitbucket Build Pipeline

Posted on Tue 28 November 2017 in docker • Tagged with docker, ci

Usually setting up the build dependencies is a major part of each build job. Thankfully, Atlassian's Bitbucket Pipelines, the new CI platform that integrates into Bitbucket, supports custom docker images.

To configure the build pipeline, you create bitbucket-pipeline.yml . This one uses our custom image (built below) and triggers builds whenever a releases-* tag is pushed.

image: tonymet/
      - step:
            - make sync_down_images
            - make s3_upload

That first line is the magic part -- you can run ANY public docker image from dockerhub (and private ones as well with further setup).

Creating TGZ artifacts from Docker Images to Enable Service Migrations

Posted on Tue 14 March 2017 in docker • Tagged with travis, ci, docker

A common migration pattern when moving to docker includes running some systems (e.g. dev, staging or a prod canary) on your docker image while the production app is still running your traditional tgz artifacts (e.g. your node app with node_modules)

Let's create a travis build that creates two artifacts: (1) your docker image and (2) a tgz from the docker container.

Let's assume you have a basic dockerfile with your app.js and a package.json. The key is that the app is built into /usr/src/app

FROM node:4

RUN mkdir -p /usr/src/app
