Short Description
Docker image for basic read-only git repo access over HTTP
Full Description

Super-basic Git over HTTP

This Dockerfile setup builds a Fedora 21 server with HTTP, and sets up /var/www/git as the base dir to serve using the git-http-backend.

How to build this

$ git clone
$ cd githttp
$ docker build . -t githttp

How to run this

This docker image expects you to bind mount a volume on the host to /var/www/git on the running container. For instance, if the git repos that you want to serve live at /home/fedora/repos, you would run this docker image with the following command:

$ docker run -d -p 8888:80 --name=githttp -v /home/fedora/repos:/var/www/git githttp

NOTE: In order for this to work, you need to set a configuration value in the git repo(s) that you want to serve:

$ cd /path/to/repo/dir
$ git config http.receivepack true

How to access repos hosted by this docker container

If you followed the example above, then this container is available at port 8888 on your docker host. So assuming you have a repo called "foo" in the directory that ypu bind mounted to var/www/git, you should be able to run:

$ git clone http://<docker_host>:8888/foo
Docker Pull Command
