Podman : Use Dockerfile2021/03/22

Use Dockerfile and create Container images automatically.
It is also useful for configuration management for Container images.
[1] For example, Create a Dockerfile that Nginx is installed and started.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi Dockerfile
# create new

FROM centos:stream8
MAINTAINER ServerWorld <admin@srv.world>

RUN dnf -y install nginx
RUN echo "Dockerfile Test on Nginx" > /usr/share/nginx/html/index.html

CMD ["/usr/sbin/nginx", "-g", "daemon off;"]

# build image ⇒ docker build -t [image name]:[tag] .

[root@dlp ~]#
podman build -t srv.world/centos-nginx:latest .

STEP 1: FROM centos:stream8
STEP 2: MAINTAINER ServerWorld <admin@srv.world>
--> ebbbd7990da
STEP 3: RUN dnf -y install nginx


STEP 6: CMD ["/usr/sbin/nginx", "-g", "daemon off;"]
STEP 7: COMMIT srv.world/centos-nginx:latest
--> 857fd2f5a02

Dockerfile Test on Nginx
The format of Dockerfile is [INSTRUCTION arguments] .
Refer to the following description for INSTRUCTION.
FROM It sets the Base Image for subsequent instructions.
MAINTAINER It sets the Author field of the generated images.
RUN It will execute any commands when Docker image will be created.
CMD It will execute any commands when Docker container will be executed.
ENTRYPOINT It will execute any commands when Docker container will be executed.
LABEL It adds metadata to an image.
EXPOSE It informs Docker that the container will listen on the specified network ports at runtime.
ENV It sets the environment variable.
ADD It copies new files, directories or remote file URLs.
COPY It copies new files or directories.
The differences of [ADD] are that it's impossible to specify remote URL and also it will not extract archive files automatically.
VOLUME It creates a mount point with the specified name and marks it as holding externally mounted volumes from native host or other containers
USER It sets the user name or UID.
WORKDIR It sets the working directory.
