Full Description

docker-mysql

A docker image for running a mysql server instance that also supports python and SQLAlchemy.
This is one of the docker images used for development at Trya.

It is based on the mysql image provided by CenturyLink.

Usage

Run a container exposing port 3306 to the host and changing default root password:

 $ docker run -d -p 3306:3306 -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=mysecretpwd lec00q/mysql

The default workdir is /tmp/db.

Setup a new database schema

You can use python scripts to setup a new schema.

For example, suppose that you have a python script named dbclasses.py which exploits SQLAlchemy. That script is in a local directory named /home/lec00q/database. Let's mount that directory as a volume:

$ docker run --name mysql -p 3306:3306 -v /home/lec00q/database:/tmp/db -e MYSQL_DATABASE=mydb lec00q/mysql

Note that we have also created a new database called mydb.
While the container is running, you may run the script using docker exec:

$ docker exec mysql python -c "import dbclasses; db_classes.initialize('mydb')"

Environment variables

  • MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: The password for the root user. Defaults to a blank password
  • MYSQL_DATABASE: A database to automatically create. If not provided, does not create a database.
  • MYSQL_USER: A user to create that has access to the database specified by MYSQL_DATABASE.
  • MYSQL_PASSWORD: The password for MYSQL_USER. Defaults to a blank password.
