Deploying a Blog with Jekyll, Gearship, Github, Docker Cloud/Hub, and DigitalOcean
Let's walk through how to do a deployment of a jekyll blog.
First make sure you have jekyll and gearship installed globally.
gem install jekyll gem install gearship
Create a new app
Create a jekyll blog and go to the folder
jekyll new gearship-example-blog cd gearship-example-blog
Create a new Dockerfile in the project root with the system we want docker to configure for our project.
See Dockerfile for code.
Create a jekyll_serve.sh file
#!/bin/bash set -e bundle exec jekyll serve --drafts --incremental --host 0.0.0.0
Create a Github repository for the project
- Go to github/new and create a new repo.
- Copy the remote repository url from the next page.
Use a GUI like GitKraken or the terminal to create the new repo:
$ git init $ git add $ git commit -m "First commit" $ git remote add origin [paste the copied url] $ git push origin master
Create a Docker Cloud automated build repository
- Go to Docker Cloud and create a new repository
- Name the repository the same name as on Github
- Link the Github repo in Build Settings
Create a droplet on DigitalOcean
Take note of the IP.
Push to Github to trigger build
git push origin master
Deploy To Server
Once docker Docker Cloud reports that the build was successful you can deploy to your
gearship deploy 22.214.171.124
