Short Description
A small Packer+Ansible Image for packer building images utilizing Ansible configuration management!
Full Description


This image aims to provide a usable packer image with ansible slipstreamed
inside for easy utilization of Ansible Local/Remote builders!

A few notes:

  • I've based off the most official Packer image, hashicorp/packer
  • This utilizes Alpine Linux which means its more nimble ;)
  • The entrypoint has been reset to the Docker default /bin/sh/ -c so this
    image is more standardized for things like gitlab-runner or other
  • I'll maintain tags which specify both packer+ansible versions, although I will
    only update this as I need to for myself and my uses. Pull Requests are very
    welcome and will be responded to as quickly as possible!


Given you bind mount a directory ami_build which has your packer.json
and related ansible scripts, something like this should work.

docker run -v /home/user/ami_build:/build -ti -e AWS_ACCESS_KEY=blah
-e AWS_SECRET_KEY=blah inanimate/packer-ansible "packer build packer.json"
