Create a homestead docker container for your development env. ( files taken from laravel settler: provision.sh (modified) + serve.sh )
Install docker && docker compose
please refer to these tutorials:
- install docker (https://docs.docker.com/installation/ubuntulinux/)
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh
- install docker compose (https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/)
curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.6.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Pull homestead image
docker pull shincoder/homestead:php7.0
Clone && Edit docker-compose.yml
git clone https://github.com/shincoder/homestead-docker.git
docker-compose.yml then edit the file with you own
paths and ports.
Start your containers
There are only two containers to run. web container ( includes everything except your database ),
and mariadb container.
sudo docker-compose up -d
SSH into the container (password: secret):
ssh -p 2222 homestead@localhost
Add a virtual host
Assuming you mapped your apps folder to
/apps (you can change mappings in the docker-compose.yml file,
it's prefered to use absolute paths), you can do:
cd / && ./serve.sh myapp.dev /apps/myapp/public
In the host, update
/etc/hosts to include your app domain:
Our web container starts nginx, php-fpm, redis, beanstalk. and has gruntjs, gulp, bower...etc
some relevant ports have been added to docker-compose.yml ( livereload standard port, karma server port ),
change them if you need to.
- Use docker's local IP address to connect to your database.
ifconfigto find the IP used (usually 172.17.0.1).
- Databases: by default mariadb is used as a database, but you are free to use any database you want: choose from these excellent images by Tutum: tutum/mysql or tutum/postgresql, they expose different environment variables, so don't forget to update your docker-compose file accordingly.
