Dockerized Directus with S3 support

  • Create a new database or bring your own
  • Easy S3 support. Just add environment variables to docker-compose.yml.
  • Utilizes custom nginx config.
  • php-fpm 5.6, mariadb 10.1 and nginx 1.10

The goal of this is to easily create a high-performing, headless content API, with a GUI and CDN support. One that can be launched and configured easily so that you can focus on more important things. This is still a work in progress.

The core of this is Directus.

Directus is a powerful and intuitive CMS for managing SQL databases with custom architectures. Built around a robust and extensible API, this decoupled content management framework is perfect for websites, apps, or multi-client projects.

It assumes you're familiar with docker-machine and docker-compose.

The best way to use this is to mount a local storage volume or add S3 credentials to send files there.

The nginx and fpm containers are provided separately for flexibility, but there's a sample docker-compose.yml file that's provided which should have everything you need to get up and running quickly. They are also built automatically on Docker Hub using this repo at iamdb/nginx-directus-docker and iamdb/fpm-directus-docker.


To get this up and running is really easy.

Just run:

docker-compose up

It will build and start all of the containers. It may take a while the first time. The fpm container has a lot to build. If they all build and start correctly, the fpm container will wait for the database host and port to become available. Once it is, and if Directus isn't already installed and all of the admin variables and the site title variable are present, a new installation using that information will be created.
