Beaker library to use docker hypervisor

How to use this wizardry

This gem that allows you to use hosts with docker hypervisor with beaker.

Beaker will automatically load the appropriate hypervisors for any given hosts file, so as long as your project dependencies are satisfied there's nothing else to do. No need to require this library in your tests.

In order to use a specific hypervisor or DSL extension library in your project, you will need to include them alongside Beaker in your Gemfile or project.gemspec. E.g.

# Gemfile
gem 'beaker', '~> 4.0'
gem 'beaker-docker'
# project.gemspec
s.add_runtime_dependency 'beaker', '~> 4.0'
s.add_runtime_dependency 'beaker-docker'

Nodeset Options

The following is a sample nodeset:

HOSTS:
  el8:
    platform: el-8-x86_64
    hypervisor: docker
    image: centos:8
    docker_cmd: '["/sbin/init"]'
    # Run arbitrary things
    docker_image_commands:
      - 'touch /tmp/myfile'
    dockeropts:
      Labels:
        thing: 'stuff'
      HostConfig:
        Privileged: true
  el7:
    platform: el-7-x86_64
    hypervisor: docker
    image: centos:7
    # EL7 images do not support nested systemd
    docker_cmd: '/usr/sbin/sshd -D -E /var/log/sshd.log'
CONFIG:
  docker_cap_add:
    - AUDIT_WRITE

Privileged containers

Containers are run in privileged mode by default unless capabilities are set.

If you wish to disable privileged mode, simply set the following in your node:

dockeropts:
  HostConfig:
    Privileged: false

Cleaning up after tests

Containers created by this plugin may not be destroyed unless the tests complete successfully. Each container created is prefixed by beaker- to make filtering for clean up easier.

A quick way to clean up all nodes is as follows:

podman rm -f $( podman ps -q -f name="beaker-*" )

Working with podman

If you're using a version of podman that has API socket support then you should be able to simply set DOCKER_HOST to your socket and connect as usual.

You also need to ensure that you're using a version of the docker-api gem that supports podman.

You may find that not all of your tests work as expected. This will be due to the tighter system restrictions placed on containers by podman. You may need to edit the dockeropts hash in your nodeset to include different flags in the HostConfig section.

See the HostConfig portion of the docker API for more information.

Spec tests

Spec test live under the spec folder. There are the default rake task and therefore can run with a simple command:

bundle exec rake test:spec

Acceptance tests

There is a simple rake task to invoke acceptance test for the library:

bundle exec rake test:acceptance
