  • First, for the Development Dockerfile (or any Dockerfile), there should always be a .dockerignore in the same location as the Dockerfile with content similar to this:

  • strapi-tool-dockerize

    Easy add support for docker to your strapi project

  • Another great alternative to generate the Dockerfile, docker-compose.yaml and all the Docker related files is to use dockerize. This tool will automatically detect your project and help you add docker support via a nice CLI UI. From your project root folder, you need to run the following:

  • helm

    The Kubernetes Package Manager

  • To take our journey one step further, we need the help of a very important tool in the K8s world: Helm. From their website: "Helm helps you manage Kubernetes applications — Helm Charts helps you define, install, and upgrade even the most complex Kubernetes application." Therefore, we need a "helm chart" to improve our deployment.
