Testing Container for Rancher
Full Description

#Container MVP

A miniminal viable product for running containers in production. This repo contains the contents of the
dockerfile and demo app which visually demonstrates a multihost, multi-AZ, multicontainer solution with the
ability to interact with an external database as defined by a config file.


The dockerfile defined here will need to be used in conjuction with rancher-compose. Rancher compose will allow
you to interact with rancher through the cli. Grab rancher-compose from their github repo.
Rancher will provide service discovery, container orchestration, an orchestration platform, and a plethora of other services.


Define an env file as templated by env-example, or simply make a copy of env-example.
cp env-example env

Modify the env file with valid values.

Run the rancher-compose command to spin up a stack of containers.

Note as a Prereq to using rancher-compose you should set a couple of env vars

Set the url that Rancher is on

$ export RANCHER_URL=

Set the access key, i.e. username

$ export RANCHER_ACCESS_KEY=<username_of_key>

Set the secret key, i.e. password

$ export RANCHER_SECRET_KEY=<password_of_key>

Creating and starting a service with environment variables and picking a stack

$ rancher-compose -f docker-compose.yml -p mvp up -d

To change the scale of an existing service

$ rancher-compose -p mvp scale web=5
