A command-line tool to help generate tags and push Docker images to a registry. Simplifies deployment of Docker images from CI services such as Travis CI.

In a single command, docker-ci-deploy can:

  • Change the tags on images
  • Add version information to image tags
  • Add registry addresses to image tags
  • Push tags to a registry

The best way to try out docker-ci-deploy is to give it a spin with the --dry-run flag and observe all the docker commands that it would invoke:

> $ docker-ci-deploy --version 2.7.13 --version-semver --version-latest \
      --registry registry:5000 --dry-run \
      praekeltorg/alpine-python \
      praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild

docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7.13
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:latest
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7.13-onbuild
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7-onbuild
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2-onbuild
docker tag praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7.13
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:latest
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7.13-onbuild
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2.7-onbuild
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:2-onbuild
docker push registry:5000/praekeltorg/alpine-python:onbuild

If you want to make your commands even shorter, the docker-ci-deploy command is also available as just dcd, and most options have a short form:

> $ dcd -V 3.6.0 -S -L -r registry:5000 --dry-run alpine-python

docker tag alpine-python registry:5000/alpine-python:3.6.0
docker tag alpine-python registry:5000/alpine-python:3.6
docker tag alpine-python registry:5000/alpine-python:3
docker tag alpine-python registry:5000/alpine-python:latest
docker push registry:5000/alpine-python:3.6.0
docker push registry:5000/alpine-python:3.6
docker push registry:5000/alpine-python:3
docker push registry:5000/alpine-python:latest

Use the -h/--help option to see all available options.

Installation

pip install docker-ci-deploy==0.2.0

The script is self-contained and has no dependencies. It can be run by simply executing the main file.

Usage

The script can tag an existing image and push the new tags to a registry.

There is one required argument: the image to push.

Pushing an image

docker-ci-deploy my-image:latest

This will simply push the image my-image:latest to the default registry (https://hub.docker.com).

Tagging

docker-ci-deploy --tag alpine --tag $(git rev-parse --short HEAD) my-image:latest

This will result in the tags my-image:alpine and my-image:eea981f (for example) being created and pushed (Note: the original tag my-image:latest is not pushed).

Version tags

docker-ci-deploy --tag alpine --version 1.2.3 my-image

This will result in the tag my-image:1.2.3-alpine being created and pushed. If a version is already present in the start of a tag, it will not be added. For example, in the above example if --tag 1.2.3-alpine were provided, the image would still be tagged with 1.2.3-alpine, not 1.2.3-1.2.3-alpine.

You can also push the tags without the version information so that they are considered the "latest" tag:

docker-ci-deploy --version 1.2.3 --version-latest my-image

This will result in the tags my-image:1.2.3 and my-image:latest being pushed.

NOTE: The --version and --version-latest options used to be known as --tag-version and --tag-latest, respectively. These old option names will continue working for the current release but will be removed soon.

Semantic version tags

docker-ci-deploy --tag alpine --version 1.2.3 --version-semver my-image

This will result in the tags my-image:1.2.3-alpine, my-image:1.2-alpine, and my-image:1-alpine being created and pushed. If part of the version is already present in the start of a tag, it will not be added. For example, in the above example if --tag 1.2-alpine were provided, the image would still be tagged with 1.2.3-alpine, not 1.2.3-1.2-alpine.

This works by stripping pieces from the front of the version string using the regex [.-]?\w+$. This means that version strings with some text in them are also supported. For example, a tag such as 8.7.1-jessie will produce the tags/tag prefixes 8.7.1-jessie, 8.7.1, 8.7, and 8.

An optional "precision" value can be set using the --semver-precision option. This sets the minimum precision of the generated versions. For example, by passing --version 1.2.3 --version-semver --semver-precision 2, the versions 1.2.3 and 1.2 are generated but not 1.

Note that this will not tag a version 0 unless the --semver-zero option is also used.

This can be used in combination with --version-latest.

NOTE: The --version-semver option used to be known as --tag-version. This old option name will continue working for the current release but will be removed soon.

Custom registry

docker-ci-deploy \
  --tag alpine --tag $(git rev-parse --short HEAD) \
  --registry my-registry.example.com:5000 \
  my-image:latest

This will result in the tags my-registry.example.com:5000/my-image:alpine and my-registry.example.com:5000/my-image:eea981f being created and pushed.

NOTE: The reference grammar for Docker image tags (as of Docker 1.13.0) is not strict enough to distinguish between a registry address and an image name component in all cases. For example, the tag praekeltorg/alpine-python could refer to the image with name alpine-python stored in the registry with hostname praekeltorg or it could be an image called praekeltorg/alpine-python stored in the default registry. docker-ci-deploy will first just prepend the registry address to the tag and only attempt to remove an existing registry address from the tag if the new tag is invalid.

Multiple images

You can provide multiple images to docker-ci-deploy and it will tag and push all of them:

docker-ci-deploy --tag $(git rev-parse --short HEAD) my-image my-other-image

This will result in the tags my-image:eea981f and my-other-image:eea981f being created and pushed.

Debugging

Use the --dry-run and --verbose parameters to see what the script will do before you use it. For more help try docker-ci-deploy --help.

Travis CI

The script could be used in any CI service that provides access to the standard Docker CLI but was developed with Travis in mind.

For Travis CI this config should get you started pushing images to Docker Hub:

services: docker
language: python
env:
  global:
    - DOCKER_USER=janedoe
    - secret: <encrypted> # DOCKER_PASS=pa$$word

before_install:
  - pip install docker-ci-deploy

script:
  - docker build -t janedoe/my-image .

before_deploy:
  - docker login -u "$DOCKER_USER" -p "$DOCKER_PASS"
deploy:
  provider: script
  script: docker-ci-deploy --tag $(git rev-parse --short HEAD) --tag latest janedoe/my-image
