Create a homestead docker container for your development env. ( files taken from laravel settler: provision.sh (modified) + serve.sh )
Install docker && docker compose
please refer to these tutorials:
- install docker (https://docs.docker.com/installation/ubuntulinux/)
- install docker compose (fig alternative) (https://docs.docker.com/compose/install/)
Build the homestead image
git clone https://github.com/shincoder/homestead-docker.git cd homestead-docker docker build -t shincoder/homestead .
Launch your containers
There are only two containers to run. web container ( includes everything except your database ), and mariadb container.
sudo docker-compose up -d
this will build the image, and start it.
SSH into the container (password: secret):
ssh -p 2222 homestead@localhost
Add a virtual host
Assuming you mapped your apps folder to
/apps (you can change mappings in the docker-compose.yml file, it's prefered to use absolute paths), you can do:
cd / && ./serve.sh myapp.dev /apps/myapp/public
In the host, update
/etc/hosts to include your app domain:
Everything should work - enjoy !!!
Our web container starts nginx, php5-fpm, redis, beanstalk. and has gruntjs, gulp, bower.
some relevant ports have been added to docker-compose.yml ( livereload standard port, karma server port ), change them if you need to.
- Use docker's local IP address to connect to your database, it's usually 172.17.42.1,
ifconfigin your terminal to make sure you got the correct IP address.
