Features

  • Images for Plone 5 and Plone 4
  • Enable add-ons via environment variables

Usage

Start a single Plone instance

This will download and start the latest Plone 5 container, based on Debian.

$ docker run -p 8080:8080 plone

This image includes EXPOSE 8080 (the Plone port), so standard container linking will make it automatically available to the linked containers. Now you can add a Plone Site at http://localhost:8080 - default Zope user and password are admin/admin.

Start Plone within a ZEO cluster

Start ZEO server

$ docker run --name=zeo plone zeoserver

Start 2 Plone clients

$ docker run --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8100 -p 8081:8080 plone
$ docker run --link=zeo -e ZEO_ADDRESS=zeo:8100 -p 8082:8080 plone

Start Plone in debug mode

You can also start Plone in debug mode (fg) by running

$ docker run -p 8080:8080 plone fg

Add-ons

You can enable Plone add-ons via the PLONE_ADDONS environment variable

$ docker run -p 8080:8080 -e PLONE_ADDONS="eea.facetednavigation Products.PloneFormGen" plone
