concourse-docker locally on Ubuntu.
git clone https://github.com/concourse/concourse-docker
Change to the
Generate keys for your local linux Concourse environment.
Run Concourse. If you see an error regarding
Version in "./docker-compose.yml" is unsupported then edit
docker-compose.yml and change the
2, or whatever is appropriate for your
docker-compose version installed.
Note that I am using the real IP address for my machine. This is necessary. Also, note the credentials being set here.
CONCOURSE_EXTERNAL_URL=http://192.168.1.103:8080 \ CONCOURSE_BASIC_AUTH_USERNAME=concourse \ CONCOURSE_BASIC_AUTH_PASSWORD=changeme \ docker-compose up
Open a new terminal window/tab.
Download the Concourse Linux cli tool from your local instance now that it is running. The cli is called
curl \ -o fly \ "http://localhost:8080/api/v1/cli?arch=amd64&platform=linux"
fly executable and put it in your
chmod +x fly && sudo cp fly /usr/local/bin/
Log in to your Concourse instance using
fly. The credentials are what we specified above when we started Concourse. The username is
concourse and the password is
fly -t lite login --concourse-url http://localhost:8080
This step should be unecessary, but if the cli and server are ever out of sync, this can change
fly to the appropriate version.
fly -t lite sync
Create a sample, empty, pipeline.
Install your empty pipeline in Concourse.
fly \ -t lite \ set-pipeline \ -p my-pipeline \ -c my-pipeline.yml
Unpause your empty pipeline since it is paused by default when it is created.
fly \ -t lite \ unpause-pipeline \ --pipeline my-pipeline
Create a simple task for Concourse. You could put this task file anywhere, but we will use the current directory for now. Create a file named
my-task.yml in the current directory. Include the
--- at the top of the file.
--- platform: linux image_resource: type: docker-image source: repository: debian tag: latest inputs: - name: scripts run: path: scripts/my-script.sh
Create a scripts directory.
mkdir -p scripts
Create a simple bash script named
my-script.sh inside the
#!/usr/bin/env bash set -x date ls /
chmod +x my-script.sh
fly \ -t lite \ execute \ --config my-task.yml \ --input scripts=./scripts
You should see your script run. Congratulations! You have just created a basic Concourse task on Linux.
