Docker container used to compile Dynomite.
Full Description

Build Dynomite

The build-dynomite container provides a clean, reusable and immutable build environment in which to compile Dynomite.

Compiling Dynomite has two discrete steps:

  1. Build the build-dynomite Docker image (automated via DockerHub)
  2. Compile Dynomite

Compile Dynomite

Run the build-dynomite container to compile Dynomite.


build-dynomite supports optional flags:

  • -v tag-version: Specify a tagged release to build based on GitHub tags. If -v is not used then the dev branch is used for the build. Specifying -v without a tag-version will result in a build error.
  • -d [mode]: Default mode is production which disables logging. debug mode which causes dynomite to output debug level logs. Possible values: debug, log. production.
  • -t target: Specify a make build target.

Current production build

docker run -it --rm -v $PWD:/src dynomitedb/build-dynomite -F 0.5.8 -d production

Build tagged version

Build Dynomite using a tagged version. For example, to build the tagged release v0.5.8 execute the command below.

docker run -it --rm -v $PWD:/src dynomitedb/build-dynomite -v v0.5.8

Build fake version

You can build Dynomite using a fake version. A fake version builds the HEAD of the dev branch, yet uses the fake version for the .deb package.

For example, to build a fake version of 0.5.8 execute the command below.

Notice how the fake version does not use a v prefix. This is deliberately different from a tagged release.

docker run -it --rm -v $PWD:/src dynomitedb/build-dynomite -F 0.5.8

Build dev branch

Build Dynomite using the dev branch.

docker run -it --rm -v $PWD:/src dynomitedb/build-dynomite

Build debug binary

Create a debug build.

docker run -it --rm -v $PWD:/src dynomitedb/build-dynomite -d debug

Manually build the build-dynomite image

The build-dynomite Docker image is automatically built via DockerHub at

The instructions below allow you to manually build the build-dynomite image, if required.

Clone the docker-build-dynomite repo from Github.

mkdir -p ~/repos/ && cd $_

git clone

cd into the build-dynomite directory.

cd ~/docker-build-dynomite

Create the build-dynomite image.

docker build -t dynomitedb/build-dynomite .
