This is image contains a set of necessary tools for Polymer CLI and Polymer Starter Kit Development so you can get up and running developing with Polymer without installing all the tools on your own computer.
This image is built weekly, with all the latest tools...
- generator-polymer-init-custom-build - This template is a starting point for building apps using Polymer Starter Kit with a custom gulp process leveraging polymer-build, the library powering Polymer CLI.
Build an app with App Toolbox
Using the Polymer Project Documentation:
Initialize & serve your project from a template =============================================== 1. Create a new project folder to start from $ mkdir my-app $ cd my-app 2. Initialize your project with an app template $ docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli polymer init polymer-2-starter-kit 3. Serve your project $ docker run --name polymer-project -d -p 8081:8081 -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli polymer serve -H 0.0.0.0 and just point your browser to port 8081 4. When you're done serving your project $ docker rm -f polymer-project
How to use this image?
Go to your Polymer project folder, then execute:
docker run --name polymer-project -d -p 8081:8081 -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli polymer serve -H 0.0.0.0
(It looks like the ports have changed from 8080 to 8081)
Once it's up and running, just point your browser to port 8081...
docker run command is long, and if you're going to be using it often, I would suggest creating/adding an alias for it in your .bash_profile or .bashrc, like:
alias polymer="docker run --name polymer-project --rm -p 8081:8081 -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli polymer "
and then you can just use
polymer along with the Polymer CLI commands, like:
polymer init starter-kit
to initialize a Polymer project from the starter-kit or one of other several templates, or
polymer serve -H 0.0.0.0
to run a development server that you can reach at port 8081
Polymer-CLI includes a number of tools for working with Polymer and Web Components:
- init - Initializes a Polymer project from one of several templates
- build - Builds an application-style project
- lint - Lints the project
- serve - Runs a development server
- test - Runs tests with web-component-tester
Tools included in this image:
This image includes:
* LTS version (4.x) of Node.js * git * gulp * Bower * Polymer CLI * generator-polymer-init-custom-build
And you can make alias for them too to work with your project with something like:
alias git-docker="docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli git " alias npm-docker="docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli npm " alias node-docker="docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli node " alias bower-docker="docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app jefferyb/polymer-cli bower " alias gulp-docker="docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/home/polymer/app -p 5000:5000 jefferyb/polymer-cli gulp "
and then, for example, you can use:
git-docker clone https://github.com/PolymerElements/polymer-starter-kit.git npm-docker install or npm-docker update bower-docker install or bower-docker update gulp-docker serve
and just point your browser to port 5000 to get started with Polymer Starter Kit.
Container Shell Access
docker exec command allows you to run commands inside a Docker container. The following command line will give you a bash shell inside your Polymer project container:
docker exec -it polymer-project bash
If you want to connect as root (for example to install a package), then execute:
docker exec -it -u root polymer-project bash
it seems node needs to be upgraded, now I get "Polymer CLI requires at least Node v6. You have v4.8.3.": am I correct?
