defstudio/dock is an autonomous docker development configurator


Requirements **dock** is a laravel-zero system packed in a .phar file, that uses docker and docker-compose in order to build a development environment. In order to work properly it needs a working installation of: - php (^7.3) - docker - docker-compose
Installation **dock** does not require installation, simply download the binary file from [here]( or type this from your project folder: ```bash wget --no-cache ```
Building an environment in order to build a development environment, **dock** uses a "recipe" system that configure the proper services for the development target. the first step is .env file initialization: ```bash php dock init ``` the system will let you choose a list of recipes: ![recipes-prompt]( and a configuration wizard will start, if available: ![recipe wizard]( the process will end up with an `env` file and a `src` folder in your project root: ``` Project Root |-- dock |-- .env |-- src/ ```
Building and starting docker containers after an `.env` file is created (manually or by running the `php dock init` command) the development environment can be bring to life: ```bash php dock start --build ``` the process can take quite a few minutes, so stop for a coffe (or better, a beer), it will end up with a confirmation in your terminal: ![startup completed]( your development system is up and running!
Update dock executable **dock** embeds a self update command that checks current version against the last released version and auto updates itself: ```bash php dock self-update ``` ![command-self-update](


dock offers a few commands to mantain and manage the development environment.

Note that additional command can be added by the active recipe, for more information please check each recipe documentation

Show documentation (php dock) by typing `php dock` command a list with all available commands will be displayed
Init command (php dock init) the initialization wizard can be started at any time with the `php dock init --force` command note that in order to load the changes the environment should be shut down with the `php dock stop` command
Log a service (php dock log) with the `php dock log` command, a service selection prompt will be displayed and will let the user choose a service for showing its live log: ![log]( to bypass the prompt, the service name can be given as parameter for the command, es. `php dock log nginx`
Log all services (php dock log:all) a condensed log for all services can be displayed with the `php dock log:all` command: ![log all](
Log into a service shell (php dock shell) it is useful, sometimes, to log into a specific container, with the `php dock shell` commands it is possible to select the service to log into: ![shell command]( to bypass the prompt, the service name can be given as parameter for the command, ie. `php dock log php`
Display active containers statistics (php dock stats) **dock** embeds docker's `stats` command to display containers memory, cpu, i/o data into its own `php dock stats` command
List running containers (php dock list:containers) with the `php dock list:containers` command, **dock** will display the list of all running containers in the system ![list containers](
List available hosts (php dock list:hosts) usually you will bind your services to a custom hostname, in order to simplify the addressing during development. this means that the OS _hosts_ file should be updated to include the mapping between these hostnames and the local ip address. to obtain a list of the hostnames defined by the build process, type `php dock list:hosts` in your terminal: ![list containers]( in this example, you should append this entries to your _hosts_ file ``` laravel.ktm mysql.laravel.ktm mail.laravel.ktm ```
List available URLs (php dock list:urls) like the `list:urls` command, with `php dock list:urls` **dock** can display the list of available urls defined during the build process: ![list containers](
Start a Lazydocker instance (php dock lazydocker) Starts a [Lazydocker]( instance, a simple terminal UI for docker and docker-compose

Tips and Tricks

  • instead of writing php dock [command] you can setup a console alias for dock: alias dock="php dock", so it will be enough to type dock [command]

  • to make the dock alias persistent between reboots, add alias dock=./dock at the end of your ~/.bashrc file
