Google Cloud Platform - Python Runtime Docker Image
This repository contains the source for the
gcr.io/google_appengine/python docker base image. This image can be used as the base image for running applications on Google App Engine Flexible, Google Container Engine, or any other Docker host.
This image is based on Debian Jessie and contains packages required to build most of the popular Python libraries. For more information about this runtime, see the documentation.
When using App Engine Flexible, you can use the runtime without worrying about docker by specifying
runtime: python in your
runtime: python vm: true entrypoint: gunicorn -b :$PORT main:app runtime_config: # You can also specify 2 for Python 2.7 python_version: 3
If you want to use this runtime as a base and customize it, you can generate a Dockerfile using the
gcloud preview app gen-config --custom
You can then modify the
.dockerignore as needed for you application.
Container Engine & other Docker hosts.
For other docker hosts, you'll need to create a
Dockerfile based on this image that copies your application code, installs dependencies, and declares an command or entrypoint. For example:
FROM gcr.io/google_appengine/python # Create a virtualenv for dependencies. This isolates these packages from # system-level packages. RUN virtualenv /env # Setting these environment variables are the same as running # source /env/bin/activate. ENV VIRTUAL_ENV /env ENV PATH /env/bin:$PATH # Copy the application's requirements.txt and run pip to install all # dependencies into the virtualenv. ADD requirements.txt /app/requirements.txt RUN pip install -r /app/requirements.txt # Add the application source code. ADD . /app # Run a WSGI server to serve the application. gunicorn must be declared as # a dependency in requirements.txt. CMD gunicorn -b :$PORT main:app
