[Archivesspace_Users_Group] ArchivesSpace & Docker - experiences?

Hi Joshua,

The archivesspace-build repo is very old and should really be deprecated before too long. It's based on early work we did at LYRASIS. I'm not too familiar with the other repo but it's using very old components so would just be a starting point.

We use:



Which we keep up to date.

I've been intending to propose a Dockerfile added to the core ArchivesSpace repository (starting with a pull request) to setup an automated build from release tags and from the master branch for the latest code at Docker Hub. Then you'd be able to pull like:

docker pull ...

archivesspace/archivesspace # :latest



This would be a good thing for everyone (who's interested in using Docker =) ... and invisible to anyone who isn't.

Hey all-

I know there are a few instances of using Docker to containerize ArchivesSpace, but I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on their experience with that setup? The proposed setup here at Dartmouth would only include the app, not the mysql db at this point. We'd also be planning on *not* incorporating the index as part of the master image.

The AS+Docker bits that I've seen are:


but there's obviously not any commentary on how this worked out in a production setup.

I'm going to try this out on my local setup but thought I'd see if anyone wanted to chime in.
