What's going on in the Dockerfile
The Dockerfile is just a list of instruction that docker uses to construct the image.
There are more commands but this is a very simple list to get us started
FROM - is the image that our image will be based off of
MAINTAINER - the creator/maintainer of the image
RUN - command to be run and "recorded"
ADD - Add files from the "host" machine to the image
EXPOSE - Ports to expose when the container is running
CMD - command to be run when the container is run
What's the difference between an image and a container?
An image is what is created on `docker build`. It's a series of layers to be transfered around.
A container is what is actually running.
db: image: postgres web: build: . command: sh /run.sh volumes: - .:/docker_madness ports: - "8000:8000" links: - db
What's happening in the fig.yml?
We list out our container names on the first level.
The subsequent levels have information pertaining to each container to be run.
