Replacing Travis CI with Docker




Since my paid Travis CI subscription has expired and I don’t intend to renew it, I wanted to see if I could use Docker containers to build and deploy my blog instead. It turns out to be an easy exercise, and I can even reuse my cibuild script to do exactly the same workflow as I did with Travis CI.

I used the official Jekyll and Ryan’s alpine-surge-bash Docker images. As of writing, Ryan has over 50K+ pulls and it’s actively maintained. And even if the alpine-surge-bash image is no longer supported, I can easily build one from his Dockerfile.

Here’re the steps I took:

$ cd source # my Jekyll blog
$ docker run --rm -it -v `pwd`:/srv/jekyll -p 4000:4000 jekyll/jekyll bundle exec jekyll s --force_polling
$ docker run --rm -it -v `pwd`:/srv/jekyll jekyll/jekyll bundle exec sh /srv/jekyll/script/cibuild
$ docker run -it --rm andthensome/alpine-surge-bash surge token
$ docker run --rm -it -v `pwd`/_site/:/srv -e SURGE_LOGIN=[email] \
    -e SURGE_TOKEN=[token] andthensome/alpine-surge-bash surge -p /srv/

Did you do it differently? Share with me how you did it!
