Short Description
Debian jessie image with a statically built docker client binary
Full Description

This image contains debian:jessie base image with added wget and vim and a statically built docker binary (taken from boot2docker). Use this image to build a disposable docker build environment on CoreOS, avoiding the pollution of the CoreOS host.

Mount the host's docker server socket into the image:

# docker run -it --rm -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock communitycloud/docker-builder

Now we can work with the host's docker server:

root@042c9197b157:/# docker images

Once the image boots, we have access to the host docker server and images. Any images built or ran from the disposable build environment will be stored and run on the host.

The workflow is thus:

  • Run a new disposable docker builder
  • Build the binary if needed by apt-getting necessary files, etc.
  • Build the docker image
  • Test the image by running containers from the disposable environment
  • Push the docker image to the repository
  • Dispose the environment.
  • The image will already be available on the host, since the environment was mapped to its docker server through the socket.
