Okteto: Using docker-compose

Okteto can understand and interpret docker-compose files into kubernetes objects. Let us understand with an example

❯ tree
.
├── Dockerfile
├── app.py
├── docker-compose.yaml
├── okteto.yml
└── requirements.txt

❯ cat Dockerfile
FROM python:3.11.0a6-alpine3.15

WORKDIR /code

COPY requirements.txt /code
RUN pip install -r requirements.txt --no-cache-dir
COPY . /code

EXPOSE 5000

CMD python app.py

❯ cat docker-compose.yaml
services:
  redis:
     image: redislabs/redismod
     ports:
       - '6379:6379'
  web:
    build: .
    ports:
      - "5000:5000"
    volumes:
      - .:/code
    depends_on:
      - redis

❯ cat app.py
from flask import Flask, jsonify
from redis import Redis

app = Flask(__name__)
redis = Redis(host='redis', port=6379)

@app.route('/')
def hello():
    redis.incr('hits')
    counter = str(redis.get('hits'),'utf-8')
    return { "message": "This webpage has been viewed {} time(s)".format(counter)}

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run(host="0.0.0.0", debug=True)cat requirements.txt

redis

Let us instantiate with okteto init

❯ okteto init
 i  Using default @ kind-macbook as context
 ✓  Okteto manifest (okteto.yml) deploy and build configured successfully
 ?  Do you want to configure your development containers? [y/n]: y
 ✓  Development container 'redis' configured successfully
 ✓  Development container 'redisinsight' configured successfully
 ✓  Okteto manifest (okteto.yml) configured successfully
 i  Run 'okteto up' to activate your development container

Update the generated okteto.yaml

Activate DEV container and test

❯ okteto up
 i  Using default @ kind-macbook as context
 i  Development environment 'docker-compose' already deployed.
 i  To redeploy your development environment run 'okteto deploy' or 'okteto up [devName] --deploy'
 ✓  Development container 'web' selected
 i  Images were already built. To rebuild your images run 'okteto build' or 'okteto deploy --build'
 ✓  Images successfully pulled

TODO
  • Volume mounts
  • Conditions leading to init containers?
