Nepomuk Seiler actually tweeted about this awhile back, but I didn’t realize until today how easy it was to do.
First off make sure you already have docker running. I am using OSX, so I used boot2docker and followed these instructions. If you don’t always read all the instructions I like do, then check out these two tips for running boot2docker on OSX:
Then follow the README.md instructions here: https://github.com/muuki88/sbt-native-packager-examples/tree/master/play-2.3
// setting a maintainer which is used for all packaging types</pre> maintainer:= “Your Name”
// exposing the play ports dockerExposedPorts in Docker := Seq(9000, 9443)
// run this with: docker run -p 9000:9000 <name>:<version> </pre>
Then build it: <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate" title="">sbt docker:publishLocal</pre>
Then run it! (replace the “play-2-3” with your name from the build.sbt, and the “1.0-SNAPSHOT” with your version) <pre class="brush: plain; title: ; notranslate" title="">docker run -p 9000:9000 play-2-3:1.0-SNAPSHOT</pre>
Once it is running, use the DOCKER_HOST IP to access it like: http://192.168.59.103:9000
I have yet to try it, but I image you can just copy the target/docker to you docker server and run it as well.
I also need to figure out how to run the the Play!Framework with different configuration files.
