Full Description

Original repo

Go to the original repository for the stable versions. This one is temporarily hosting beta versions of ember-cli v2.x.y, at least until the stable version comes out and the original repo is updated.

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

This image was originally based on: geoffreyd/ember-cli (hat tip)

This image contains everything you need to have a working development environment for ember-cli. The container's working dir is /myapp so that you can setup a volume mapping your project dir to /myapp in the container.

ember-cli v2.3.0 + node 5.5.0 + npm 3.3.12 + bower 1.7.2 + phantomjs 2.1.3 + watchman 4.3.0

How to use - Easy Way

Clone the ember-cli-docker-template project from github which already has everything all setup to start using this image. It also conveniently sets up aliases for the ember, bower, and npm commands so that you don't need to type docker-compose run --rm <command>. Instead, you can simply type the command just as if it was running locally instead of in a docker container.

How to use - Hard Way

The harder way is to manually setup a project to use this container via docker-compose.

  1. Create new project dir and add a docker-compose.yml file similar to the following:

    ember: &defaults
      image: danlynn/ember-cli:1.13.13
        - .:/myapp
      <<: *defaults
      entrypoint: ['/usr/local/bin/npm']
      <<: *defaults
      entrypoint: ['/usr/local/bin/bower', '--allow-root']
      <<: *defaults
      command: server --watcher polling
        - "4200:4200"
        - "35729:35729"
  2. Create an ember app in the current dir:

     docker-compose run --rm ember init
  3. Start the ember server:

    $ docker-compose up

    This launches the ember-cli server on port 4200 in the docker container. As you make changes to the ember webapp files, they will automagically be detected and the associated files will be recompiled and the browser will auto-reload showing the changes.

    Note that if you get an error something like

    server_1 | Error: A non-recoverable condition has triggered.  Watchman needs your help!
    server_1 | The triggering condition was at timestamp=1450119416: inotify-add-watch(/myapp/node_modules/ember-cli/node_modules/bower/node_modules/update-notifier/node_modules/latest-version/node_modules/package-json/node_modules/got/node_modules/duplexify/node_modules/readable-stream/doc) -> The user limit on the total number of inotify watches was reached; increase the fs.inotify.max_user_watches sysctl
    server_1 | All requests will continue to fail with this message until you resolve
    server_1 | the underlying problem.  You will find more information on fixing this at
    server_1 |

    Then watchman is running out of resources trying to track all the files in a large ember app. To increase the fs.inotify.max_user_watches count to something that is more appropriate for an ember app, stop your docker-compose server by hitting ctrl-c (or docker-compose stop server if necessary) then execute the following command:

    $ docker run --rm --privileged --entrypoint sysctl danlynn/ember-cli:1.13.13 -w fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288

    Note that this will affect all containers that run on the current docker-machine from this point forward because fs.inotify.max_user_watches is a system-wide setting. This shouldn't be a big deal however, so go ahead and give it a try. Then start the docker-compose service again with

    $ docker-compose up
  4. Launch the ember webapp:

    You will need to first determine the IP of the docker container:

    $ docker-machine ip
    $ boot2docker ip

    Next open that ip address in your browser on port 4200:

Command Usage

The ember, bower, and npm commands can be executed in the container to effect changes to your local project dir as follows. You basically put a "docker-compose run --rm" in front of any of the 3 commands and pass the normal command options as usual.


docker-compose run --rm npm install
docker-compose run --rm bower install bootstrap
docker-compose run --rm ember generate model user
Docker Pull Command
