Procfiles and `.aptible.yml`
To provide a Procfile or a
.aptible.yml when using Direct Docker Image Deploy, you need to include these files in your Docker image at a pre-defined location:
Procfilemust be located at
.aptible.ymlmust be located at
Both of these files are optional. Review the documentation for Procfiles and
.aptible.yml for more information.
Creating a suitable Docker Image
Here is how you can create those files in your Dockerfile, assuming you have files named
.aptible.yml at the root of your Docker build context:
RUN mkdir /.aptible/ ADD Procfile /.aptible/Procfile ADD .aptible.yml /.aptible/.aptible.yml
Note that if you are using
docker build . to build your image, then the build context is the current directory.
Aptible also supports providing these files through a Companion Git Repository.
However, this approach is much less convenient, so we strongly recommend including the files in the Docker image instead.
