Hi all! I’m preety new at docker and docker-compose.
I’m working with docker for windows and triying to expose a single properties file from my docker container to my host.
But the container allways make a directory.
It’s some way to create a file instantead a directory?
I’m using this declaration:
If I can’t expose a single file as volume, can I copy that file into the folder when the container is starting?
Not supported in Docker for Windows. Only folder mappings are supported.
Nope. But, you can copy a file into a running container after its started: docker cp /path/to/local/file container:/path/in/container. If you put into consideration that docker containers are disposable by design, I wouldn’t waste time on docker cp, as the change will be lost when the container needs to be re-created (e.g. for an image update).
Why don’t you map the whole configs folder from the host to the container? At least this would be more reliable.
I’m just triying to automatize the configuration for this aplication.
Sadly, the main configurations are in the root folder of the app, so, if I expose that, I expose all the app in the folder.
So, maybe the best aproach is make an ‘custom image’ when all the configs are copied to the container, right?
