Short Description
A community source-to-image builder image for MeteorJS modified to be deployed on the Digital Garage
Full Description

NodeJS Builder image

This repository contains the source for building various versions of
the Node.JS application as a reproducible Docker image using

CentOS based builder images with Nodejs binaries from
The resulting image can be run using Docker.

If you are interested in using SCL-based nodejs binaries, try sti-nodejs


To build a simple nodejs example app application using standalone STI:

$ s2i build ryanj/centos7-s2i-nodejs:current pillarjs

Run the resulting image with Docker:

$ docker run -p 8080:8080 pillarjs

Access the application:

$ curl

Repository organization


    • Dockerfile

      CentOS based Dockerfile with 64bit nodejs binaries from

    • Dockerfile.sourcebuild

      CentOS based Dockerfile, nodejs binaries built from source (downloaded from

    • s2i/bin/

      This folder contains scripts that are run by STI:

      • assemble

        Used to install the sources into the location where the application
        will be run and prepare the application for deployment (eg. installing
        modules using npm, etc.)

      • run

        This script is responsible for running the application, by using the
        application web server.

      • usage*

        This script prints the usage of this image.

    • contrib/

      This folder contains a file with commonly used modules.

    • test/

      This folder contains the S2I
      test framework with simple Node.JS echo server.

      • test-app/

        A simple Node.JS echo server used for testing purposes by the S2I test framework.

      • run

        This script runs the S2I test framework.

Environment variables

Application developers can use the following environment variables to configure the runtime behavior of this image:

NAME Description
NPM_RUN Select an alternate / custom runtime mode, defined in your package.json file's scripts section (default: npm run "start")
NODE_ENV NodeJS runtime mode (default: "production")
HTTP_PROXY use an npm proxy during assembly
HTTPS_PROXY use an npm proxy during assembly

One way to define a set of environment variables is to include them as key value pairs in your repo's .s2i/environment file.

Example: DATABASE_USER=sampleUser

NOTE: Define your own "DEV_MODE":

The following package.json example includes a entry. You can define your own custom NPM_RUN scripts in your application's package.json file.

Using Docker's exec

To change your source code in a running container, use Docker's exec command:

$ docker exec -it <CONTAINER_ID> /bin/bash

After you Docker exec into the running container, your current directory is set to /opt/app-root/src, where the source code for your application is located.

Using OpenShift's rsync

If you have deployed the container to OpenShift, you can use oc rsync to copy local files to a remote container running in an OpenShift pod.
