Concourse Pipeline to Build a Docker Image Automatically on Git Commit

In this tutorial we will build a ci pipeline using concourse to build and push a image to dockerhub automatically, whenever a new git commit is made to the master branch.

Our Project Setup

Our Directory Tree:

1

$ find .
./Dockerfile
./ci
./ci/pipeline.yml
./README.md
./docker-tunnel

The project used in this example is not important, but you can check it out at https://github.com/ruanbekker/docker-remote-tunnel

Our Pipeline

A visual to see how the pipeline will look like in concourse:

Our pipeline definition will consist of 3 resources, github repo, dockerhub image and a slack resource to inform use whether a build has completed.

Then we are specifying that the job should be triggered on a git commit for the master branch, build and push to our dockerhub repo.

Our pipeline definition ci/pipeline.yml:

Note that our secret information is templatized and saved in our local credentials.yml which should never be stored in version control:

1

slack_notification_url: https://api.slack.com/aaa/bbb/ccc
dockerhub_user: myuser
dockerhub_password: mypasswd
github_private_key: |-
        -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
        some-secret-data
        -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY------

Set the Pipeline:

Now that we have our pipeline definition, credentials and application code (stored in version control), go ahead and set the pipeline, which will save the pipeline configuration in concourse:

1
2
# pipeline name: my-docker-app-pipeline
$ fly -t scw sp -n main -c pipeline.yml -p my-docker-app-pipeline -l credentials.yml

Now the pipeline is saved on concourse but in a paused state, go ahead and unpause the pipeline:

1
$ fly -t scw up -p my-docker-app-pipeline

Test your Pipeline

Make a commit to master and head over to concourse and look at it go:
