How to register DockerImage to DockerHub


I didn't have an image of Ruby 2.3.1 running on CentOS with Docker, so I made this.

It says something like this

  • How to install Docker for mac
  • How do I create a Dockerfile?
  • Install using a Dockerfile created in the local environment
  • Registering a Dockerfile to the DockerHub
  • Registering a Dockerfile with DockerHub and Github

Install Docker for mac
Hit the Get Docker for Mac button to download the DMG file.
Double-click on the downloaded file to install it.

It takes quite a long time to install, and if you have an existing Docker, it takes even longer because of the migration process.

If you have installed from Docker Toolbox, you need to remove the old Docker because it consumes almost the same size of disk space when you migrate.

Here's how to remove it:

Create a Dockerfile

# set base OS image
FROM centos:latest

# set Ruby installed Dir

# install packeges for installing Ruby
RUN yum update -y &&\frzessor
    yum install -y install epel-release && \fnDroid
    yum install -y bzip2 make which wget tar git nodejs \frzessor
    gcc patch readline-devel zlib-devel \b1}
    libyaml-devel openssl-devel \frzero
    gdbm-devel ncurses-devel libxml-devel
RUN yum clean all

# install Ruby with ruby-build
RUN mkdir $RUBY_DIR &&\fnDroid
    cd $RUBY_DIR && \fnDroid
    git clone && \fnDroid
    $RUBY_DIR/ruby-build/ &&\frz
    cd $RUBY_DIR/ruby-build && . /bin/ruby-build $RUBY_VERSION $RUBY_INSTALL && \fnDroid
    rm -rf $RUBY_DIR/ruby-build
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create a Docker Image from a Dockerfile

The image name is given with the -t option.
If you don't use your account name/image name, you can't upload it to DockerHub.

Go to the directory where the Dockerfile is and run the following command (don't forget the period at the end)

> docker build -t konyu/centos_ruby .
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

It takes a lot of time, so be careful.

Make sure the Docker image is made

If you have a repository called centos_ruby, it works

> docker images
konyu/centos_ruby latest 78ed661736e3 3 minutes ago 550.4 MB
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Create a container from a Docker image

Launching a container with an image

> docker run -it --rm centos_ruby bash
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

-it container startup, login with shell at startup
--rm Discard the container when it is exiting the container

Check Ruby version and OS version

> ruby -v
ruby 2.3.1p112 (2016-04-26 revision 54768) [x86_64-linux]
> cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Subscribe to DockerHub

Register an account in DockerHub

There are two ways to push an image from here locally, and one that works with Github.
Share each method.
I recommend the Github collaboration described later.

How to push an image from the local

Logging into DockerHub from the command line

> docker login
Login with your Docker ID to push and pull images from Docker Hub. If you don't have a Docker ID, head over to to create one.
Username: Account name
Password: Password

Pushing an image to DockerHub

> docker push konyu/centos_ruby:latest
The push refers to a repository []
c789971294c7: Pushed
94e172a9994f: Pushed

Working with Github (recommended!)

Hosting the target Dockerfile on Github
Registering a repository with Dockerfile on Github

Go to DockerHub and press the "Create automated build" button.

Choose a repository that works with Github and works with DockerHub

Select "Build Settings" from the target DockerHub repository and press the Trigger button below

If you hit the Build Details tab, you'll see that the Dockerfile has been compiled

Let's use the DockerImage from DockerHub

Run docker run with the image name in DockerHub.

docker run --rm -it konyu/centos7-ruby23
Unable to find image 'konyu/centos7-ruby23:latest' locally

I'm hooked.

CentOS core was too minimal and I got hooked

  • I couldn't upload a file with paperclip unless I installed the file command.
  • No crond.
