Converting an image
These instructions has been designed to work with the following environments:
- OS X 10.14+, Ubuntu 20.04 or Windows
- Have Docker installed and Docker service available. If you don't have Docker installed follow these instructions
- Gvmkit-build installed (see instructions)
You can use npx and pipx tools to run gvmkit-build without installation.
Golem images are based on Docker images, which means that it is required to have a Docker image to be able to convert it to a Golem image. We will include a simple Dockerfile just to show how the tool and its commands work for demonstration purposes, and you are free to create your own Dockerfile.
Building your Docker image
Dockerfile file with the following content:
FROM debian:latest VOLUME /golem/input /golem/output WORKDIR /golem/work
Now build a Docker image tagged
golem-example using the above Dockerfile.
docker build . -t golem-example
Converting Docker image to a Golem image
The examples below show how to convert the Docker image tagged
golem-example to a
.gvmi file in the current directory.
Converting and publishing your image at once (hash-based)
This example explains how to convert and publish an image that will be identified by its hash. The examples assume you have a Docker image tagged
golem-example already created.
Note if the image was already converted to
.gvmi format, it will only be pushed.
gvmkit-build golem-example --push --nologin
The hash is found in the
image link line of the console output:
-- image link (for use in SDK): 99e40c2168cef0231dde2ed7ed74ebb607f25d8ed4bf9fe537f8da7b
