super simple build services for docker container images

Over the course of the past three days I build many dozens of containers. I have not been using any container build service like [OSBS][1] for that. Finally, I got tired of checking for the correct docker build command in my history and implemented the super simple build service – ssbs.

It consists of two parts:

  • a LABEL within the Dockerfile and
  • a shell alias

The LABEL

I have put LABEL Build docker build --rm --tag goern/wordpress-centos7-atomicapp . in my docker file. And this shell alias to evaluate it alias docker-build='$(grep LABEL Dockerfile | grep Build | cut -d " " -f 3- )'.
