MongoDB Local ReplicaSet
Sometimes you need a replica set in your local environment (perhaps you want to use the oplog). But it's somewhat involved to spin up a series of mongo containers and provide the correct configuration. This docker image will create a self-contained 3 node replica set (that is, all three nodes are running in one container).
THIS IS ONLY USEFUL FOR LOCAL DEVELOPMENT
You need to know the following:
User info is configured on the admin database:
Each instance exposes a port, all listening on 0.0.0.0 interface:
The container will create one volume at
/data, but you can mount one or more to your host at these paths:
REPLICA SET NAME
You can customize the replica set name by providing
REPLICA_SET_NAME environment variable. default name is:
If you mount something into
/data/db1, the container will not go through it's initialization process, but it will also assume that you have mounted all 3 volumes -- so mount all 3 or none. You can customize the username/password by providing
PASSWORD environment variables (but you probably don't need to).
docker run -d --name mongo -v $(pwd)/data:/data boucher/mongo-local-replicaset
