Test Salt in Docker
Docker image to test salt states and pillars with a highstate for any hostname. In examples below, $(pwd) is assumed to return salt states root directory, the one with top.sls.
Available docker images
docker pull tomologic/salt-test:centos6 docker pull tomologic/salt-test:debian7 docker pull tomologic/salt-test:debian8 docker pull tomologic/salt-test:ubuntu14.04 docker pull tomologic/salt-test:ubuntu14.10
Run highstate for any hostname
Navigate to your salt states location and run:
docker run -i -v $(pwd):/srv/salt -h hostname.example.com tomologic/salt-test:centos6
Run specific states
The first argument will be passed to state.sls. Navigate to your salt states location and run:
docker run -i -v $(pwd):/srv/salt tomologic/salt-test:centos6 nginx
You can run multiple states at once:
docker run -i -v $(pwd):/srv/salt tomologic/salt-test:centos6 nginx.ssl,postgresql
Use pillar data
To use pillar data as well, mount pillar directory at /srv/pillar with another -v option.
docker run -i -v $(pwd):/srv/salt -v /path/to/pillar:/srv/pillar -h hostname.example.com tomologic/salt-test:centos6
Use grains data
To use grains, mount a grains file at /etc/salt/grains. See http://docs.saltstack.com/en/latest/topics/targeting/grains.html#grains-in-etc-salt-grains
docker run -i -v $(pwd):/srv/salt -v /path/to/grains.example:/etc/salt/grains tomologic/salt-test:centos6
Build your own images
The update.sh script in this repository spreads files to all subdirectories. More graceful way to share files between several dockerfiles is welcome.
This is how you use the Makefile:
make os=centos6 build
