Storing and distributing docker Images

  • As of now we can build docker images for the application by creating a Dockerfile
    • right base image
    • steps to install / configure your application
    • ports used by application
    • commands to start/run your app
  • Workflow: Preview
  • Now Lets realize this workflow for gameoflife
  • Whenever a new version of commited a new Docker image can be generated. Dockerfile is created generally in the source-code archive. Refer Here
  • Whenever the code is commited we can generate a Dockerimage with a new tag. This tag is build locally on some machine, but it should be made available to others (In Enteprise means other members, In public means anyone)
  • Lets get Started with using a Default Registry called as DockerHub
  • Lets build the docker image
docker image build -t gameoflife:07112020 .
  • Now create a tag that matches repository name
docker image tag gameoflife:07112020 qualitythought/gameoflife:07112020


  • Now lets execute
docker login # Enter docker hub credentials
