i’m interested in using a docker container for testing different versions of haxe . so i tried the haxe docker library . As a first time docker user, i managed to run my image, compile some hxml and get the whole stuff.
But i didn’t succeed in running nekotools server and access it on the host via a browser.
does anyone has experience on this?
here is the dockerfile i use.
RUN mkdir -p /usr/src/app
# install dependencies
COPY *.hxml /usr/src/app/
RUN yes | haxelib install all
# compile the project
COPY . /usr/src/app
RUN haxe build.hxml
# run the output when the container starts
#CMD ["neko", "Main.n"]
CMD ["nekotools", "server"]
$ docker build -t dosh
$ docker run --name bim -d -p 40013:2000 dosh
$ curl --verbose http://192.168.99.100:40013/index.n
* Trying 192.168.99.100...
* connect to 192.168.99.100 port 40013 failed: Connection refused
* Failed to connect to 192.168.99.100 port 40013: Connection refused
* Closing connection 0
any help ?
It might be
I think that runs
nekotools "nekotools server" and that you want
CMD ["nekotools", "server"] instead.
sorry, typo in the post . fixed it …
but that’s not the issue
When you run docker ps what interfaces/ports are shown?
That output looks fine. It’s just dawned on me that nekotools server by default only listens on localhost (i.e. local to the container). You will need to add the parameter -h 0.0.0.0
do you mean
$docker run --name bim -d -p 40013:2000 -h 0.0.0.0 dosh
doesnt work neither…
The parameter is for nektools:
nekotools server -h 0.0.0.0
Sorry, my fault for being ambiguous. It’s nekotools server -h 0.0.0.0
thx @ibilon && @anthonyhawes
CMD [“nekotools”, “server” ,"-h", “0.0.0.0”] //in dockerfile
docker run -d --name bim -p 2000:2000 dosh
another question …
how would you manage to have a container running with haxe and a server.
and then compile hxml without relaunching the container ?
Can you spell out in more detail what you are trying to achieve?
recompile and restart server w/o restarting container … or more specific module replacing after file save … HMR … I think
