Building Docker Containers for PDAL¶
pdal/dependencies:latest– PDAL’s dependencies for Travis builds
pdal/pdal:latest– Latest PDAL release branch
pdal/pdal:1.5– PDAL 1.5 maintenance branch
pdal/pdal:1.6– PDAL 1.6 maintenance branch
PDAL’s public use Docker containers are built using Alpine Linux,
but the containers that PDAL’s `Travis`_ infrastructure uses
are built upon Ubuntu. The `Dependences`_ container
corresponds to where ever the
dependencies tag of the PDAL
source tree at https://github.com/PDAL/PDAL resides
The PDAL dependencies Docker container is used by Travis Continuous Integration testing by Travis. It is built using the Dockerfile at https://github.com/PDAL/PDAL/blob/master/scripts/docker/dependencies/Dockerfile
pdal/dependencies:latest image is regenerated by force-pushing a tag of
the SHA you wish to use to have DockerHub build.
git tag -f dependencies git push origin refs/tags/dependencies -f
The dependencies container is currently built upon Ubuntu Xenial. When the next Ubuntu LTS is released, the PDAL project will likely move to it.
A PDAL container corresponding to the last major release is automatically
created and maintained with every commit to the active release branch. For
1.6-maintenance branch will have a corresponding
pdal/pdal:1.6 container made with every commit on DockerHub. Users are
encouraged to use these containers for testing, bug confirmation, and deployment
Latest (or master)¶
For convenience, pdal/pdal:latest corresponds to the latest release-branch, automatically built from the 1.x-maintenance branch as new commits are pushed to it.
You should be using the Maintenance Docker container for any production-oriented operations. latest may change version as a new PDAL release is made, but specifically versioned Docker containers will continue to be available.
$ git tag -f docker-master $ git push origin refs/tags/docker-master -f
