Full Description

Dockerised Gitman

Source of the docker image redmatter/gitman.

Documentation on gitman can be found at

Inspiration and entrypoint logic from php composer.

How to use it?

In what ever way you use it, you will have to setup a volume with your project content; the easiest way to do that is by
setting up your current working directory. i.e by passing in the docker run option --volume=$(pwd):/project.

Safest way to run it

Here is the safest way to run it; with the same privileges as your user. i.e by passing in the docker run option
--user=$(id -u):$(id -g)

The entrypoint script can take all gitman commandline options.

docker run --rm -it \
    --user="$(id -u):$(id -g)" \
    --volume="$(pwd):/project" \

Customisations via environment variable


default: /project

If you fancy setting up the project volume to be somewhere other than /project, you will need to set this variable up.


default: /tmp

This is the folder that gitman uses for caching git repos.
