Docker for Rails

18th of December, 2016 14:00

"Docker" - is a technology that allows you to package your application in an isolated container. No matter what - a web server, your program on Rails or MySQL database. With ¬ęDocker" you can skip installation and configuration of the required software on the local machine. You shouldn't worry that it might break something on your local machine or doesn't start at all. Just pull the container with MySQL, start it - and it works.

 - Fabrizio Soppelsa, Docker developer.

On recent Ruby meetup from Mobidev we discussed many interesting themes, among them was Docker (video is in Russian, see English slides below):

What's inside:

  • which tasks Docker performs;
  • how to create your first container for Ruby on Rails application;
  • what is docker-compose;
  • how to build and launch you environment (Postgres, Redis, Sidekiq, RoR) in a minutes.

And of course slides:
