Zip-file support in ADD


(Wnoorduin) #1

When you use a tar ball, or a tar,gz file to an image with ADD, it uncompress and untars them, which is great. For a project I am doing right now, there is only a zip file available, and currenlty, Docker just copies the file and does noing with it. Now I know:

unzip && tar cfz thing.tar.gz .

(or something like that) is your friend, but my question is: Can you add support for zips to Docker

(Ranjandas) #2


There is already a feature/enhancement request raised for docker.

You may take a look at this project too.
