Short Description
Image for CI tests of ionic app
Full Description


A ionic 1/2 image to be used with Gitlab CI

Inspired by:


  • Node
  • Npm or Yarn
  • Ionic
  • Cordova
  • Android sdk and build tools
  • Ready to run Google Chrome Headless for e2e tests
  • Ruby
  • Scss-lint support


docker run -ti --rm -p 8100:8100 -p 35729:35729 marcoturi/ionic

If you have your own ionic sources, you can launch it with:

docker run -ti --rm -p 8100:8100 -p 35729:35729 -v /path/to/your/ionic-project/:/myApp:rw marcoturi/ionic


With this alias:

alias ionic="docker run -ti --rm -p 8100:8100 -p 35729:35729 --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb -v ~/.gradle:/root/.gradle -v \$PWD:/myApp:rw marcoturi/ionic ionic"

Due to a bug in ionic, if you want to use ionic serve, you have to use --net host option :

alias ionic="docker run -ti --rm --net host --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb -v ~/.gradle:/root/.gradle -v \$PWD:/myApp:rw marcoturi/ionic ionic"

Know you need gradle for android, I suggest to mount ~/.gradle into /root/.gradle to avoid downloading the whole planet again and again

you can follow the ionic tutorial (except for the ios part...) without having to install ionic nor cordova nor nodejs on your computer.

ionic start myApp tabs
cd myApp
ionic serve
# If you didn't used --net host, be sure to chose the ip address, not localhost, or you would not be able to use it

open http://localhost:8100 and everything works.

Android tests

You can test on your android device, just make sure that debugging is enabled.

cd myApp
ionic cordova platform add android
ionic cordova build android
ionic cordova run android


  • The application is not installed on my android device
    • Try docker run -ti --rm -p 8100:8100 -p 35729:35729 --privileged -v /dev/bus/usb:/dev/bus/usb -v \$PWD:/myApp:rw marcoturi/ionic adb devices your device should appear
  • The adb devices show nothing whereas I can see it when I do adb devices on my computer
    • You can't have adb inside and outside docker at the same time, be sure to adb kill-server on your computer before using this image
