Docker build and test environment


Please refer to embox wiki:


Build step is not required for regular usage, it's dedicated to image developers. If you want to develop/extend this image, you can clone this repo, adjust Dockerfile and build your own image with next command

docker build -t my-emdocker .


The command above will create image suitable to use, but not so good to be published because it's size. During time of development it became really uncomfortable to watch on layers size, manually squashing them. So external tool for squashing used:

For regular use, consider using It will squash all layers from source image starting from head and ending at first MAINTAINER layer, so base images will be safe. Old image will be untouched, squashed image will get own tag. Synopsis is


Defaults are OK to construct real image, published on default source image is my-emdocker and squashed image tag is embox/emdocker:latest.

If you've built my-emdocker and willing to republish embox/emdocker, then just type

$ ./
$ docker push embox/emdocker:latest

Note that unsquashed image is still published as embox/emdocker:latest-dev via Docker Hub automated build capabillity.


Image have some tricks to make build and debug embox pleasure.

  1. embox root directory passed as /embox mount, allowing to edit files via prefered way on host computer. However, new files created by build process should like as it were created on host. Container's user created on container start, taking uid/gid from embox mountpoint. So new files created by build process have same uid/gid, as host user.
  2. user's bashrc makes cd to embox project directory. So, ssh or docker exec commands have less to type.
