Build a Docker containerΒΆ

The procedure to build the docker container is the same as the for building cloud VMs.

Before running tox -e ansible -- --extra-vars "build_hosts=docker" though, initialise the base Docker container by running the playbook-docker.yml via:

$ tox -e docker

Once provisioned, stop the container (to wipe the /tmp folder), then you can create a new image from the container by:

$ docker commit -a "Author Name" -m "Container provisioned by ansible" qm_instance organisation/quantum-mobile:20.11.2a

If you have a Docker Hub account then you can also upload your image:

$ docker login -u username -p password
$ docker push organisation/quantum-mobile:20.11.2a
