container

Description

Specify a container image to build or pull from a remote registry. You may also optionally specify services to deploy, tasks or tests to run inside the container.
Note that the runtime services have somewhat limited features in this module type. For example, you cannot specify replicas for redundancy, and various platform-specific options are not included. For those, look at other module types like helm or kubernetes.
Below is the full schema reference. For an introduction to configuring Garden modules, please look at our Configuration guide.
The first section contains the complete YAML schema, and the second section describes each schema key.
container modules also export values that are available in template strings. See the Outputs section below for details.

Complete YAML Schema

The values in the schema below are the default values.
# The schema version of this config (currently not used).
apiVersion: garden.io/v0
​
kind: Module
​
# The type of this module.
type:
​
# The name of this module.
name:
​
# Specify how to build the module. Note that plugins may define additional keys on this object.
build:
# A list of modules that must be built before this module is built.
dependencies:
- # Module name to build ahead of this module.
name:
​
# Specify one or more files or directories to copy from the built dependency to this module.
copy:
- # POSIX-style path or filename of the directory or file(s) to copy to the target.
source:
​
# POSIX-style path or filename to copy the directory or file(s), relative to the build directory.
# Defaults to the same as source path.

​
# Maximum time in seconds to wait for build to finish.
timeout: 1200

# For multi-stage Dockerfiles, specify which image to build (see
# https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/build/#specifying-target-build-stage---target for details).

# A description of the module.
description:
​
# Set this to `true` to disable the module. You can use this with conditional template strings to disable modules
# based on, for example, the current environment or other variables (e.g. `disabled: ${environment.name == "prod"}`).
# This can be handy when you only need certain modules for specific environments, e.g. only for development.
#
# Disabling a module means that any services, tasks and tests contained in it will not be deployed or run. It also
# means that the module is not built _unless_ it is declared as a build dependency by another enabled module (in which
# case building this module is necessary for the dependant to be built).
#
# If you disable the module, and its services, tasks or tests are referenced as _runtime_ dependencies, Garden will
# automatically ignore those dependency declarations. Note however that template strings referencing the module's
# service or task outputs (i.e. runtime outputs) will fail to resolve when the module is disabled, so you need to make
# sure to provide alternate values for those if you're using them, using conditional expressions.
disabled: false
​
# Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or globs that should be regarded as the source files for this module. Files that
# do *not* match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to
# filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.
#
# Note that you can also _exclude_ files using the `exclude` field or by placing `.gardenignore` files in your source
# tree, which use the same format as `.gitignore` files. See the [Configuration Files
# guide](https://docs.garden.io/using-garden/configuration-overview#including-excluding-files-and-directories) for
# details.
#
# Also note that specifying an empty list here means _no sources_ should be included.
#
# If neither `include` nor `exclude` is set, and the module has a Dockerfile, Garden
# will parse the Dockerfile and automatically set `include` to match the files and
# folders added to the Docker image (via the `COPY` and `ADD` directives in the Dockerfile).
#
# If neither `include` nor `exclude` is set, and the module
# specifies a remote image, Garden automatically sets `include` to `[]`.
include:
​
# Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or glob patterns that should be excluded from the module. Files that match these
# paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events,
# and when staging builds.
#
# Note that you can also explicitly _include_ files using the `include` field. If you also specify the `include`
# field, the files/patterns specified here are filtered from the files matched by `include`. See the [Configuration
# Files guide](https://docs.garden.io/using-garden/configuration-overview#including-excluding-files-and-directories)
# for details.
#
# Unlike the `modules.exclude` field in the project config, the filters here have _no effect_ on which files and
# directories are watched for changes. Use the project `modules.exclude` field to affect those, if you have large
# directories that should not be watched for changes.
exclude:
​
# A remote repository URL. Currently only supports git servers. Must contain a hash suffix pointing to a specific
# branch or tag, with the format: <git remote url>#<branch|tag>
#
# Garden will import the repository source code into this module, but read the module's config from the local
# garden.yml file.
repositoryUrl:
​
# When false, disables pushing this module to remote registries.
allowPublish: true
​
# A list of files to write to the module directory when resolving this module. This is useful to automatically
# generate (and template) any supporting files needed for the module.
generateFiles:
- # POSIX-style filename to read the source file contents from, relative to the path of the module (or the
# ModuleTemplate configuration file if one is being applied).
# This file may contain template strings, much like any other field in the configuration.
sourcePath:
​
# POSIX-style filename to write the resolved file contents to, relative to the path of the module source directory
# (for remote modules this means the root of the module repository, otherwise the directory of the module
# configuration).
#
# Note that any existing file with the same name will be overwritten. If the path contains one or more
# directories, they will be automatically created if missing.
targetPath:
​
# By default, Garden will attempt to resolve any Garden template strings in source files. Set this to false to
# skip resolving template strings. Note that this does not apply when setting the `value` field, since that's
# resolved earlier when parsing the configuration.
resolveTemplates: true
​
# The desired file contents as a string.
value:
​
# A map of variables scoped to this particular module. These are resolved before any other parts of the module
# configuration and take precedence over project-scoped variables. They may reference project-scoped variables, and
# generally use any template strings normally allowed when resolving modules.
variables:
​
# Specify a path (relative to the module root) to a file containing variables, that we apply on top of the
# module-level `variables` field.
#
# The format of the files is determined by the configured file's extension:
#
# * `.env` - Standard "dotenv" format, as defined by [dotenv](https://github.com/motdotla/dotenv#rules).
# * `.yaml`/`.yml` - YAML. The file must consist of a YAML document, which must be a map (dictionary). Keys may
# contain any value type.
# * `.json` - JSON. Must contain a single JSON _object_ (not an array).
#
# _NOTE: The default varfile format will change to YAML in Garden v0.13, since YAML allows for definition of nested
# objects and arrays._
#
# To use different module-level varfiles in different environments, you can template in the environment name
# to the varfile name, e.g. `varfile: "my-module.${environment.name}.env` (this assumes that the corresponding
# varfiles exist).
varfile:
​
# Specify build arguments to use when building the container image.
#
# Note: Garden will always set a `GARDEN_MODULE_VERSION` argument with the module version at build time.
buildArgs: {}
​
# Specify extra flags to use when building the container image. Note that arguments may not be portable across
# implementations.
extraFlags:
​
# Specify the image name for the container. Should be a valid Docker image identifier. If specified and the module
# does not contain a Dockerfile, this image will be used to deploy services for this module. If specified and the
# module does contain a Dockerfile, this identifier is used when pushing the built image.
image:
​
# Specifies which files or directories to sync to which paths inside the running containers of hot reload-enabled

​
# Annotations to attach to the service _(note: May not be applicable to all providers)_.
#
# When using the Kubernetes provider, these annotations are applied to both Service and Pod resources. You can
# generally specify the annotations intended for both Pods or Services here, and the ones that don't apply on

#
# A local path or path on the node that's running the container, to mount in the container, relative to the
# module source path (or absolute).
hostPath:
​
# The name of a _volume module_ that should be mounted at `containerPath`. The supported module types will
# depend on which provider you are using. The `kubernetes` provider supports the [persistentvolumeclaim
# module](./persistentvolumeclaim.md), for example.
#
# When a `module` is specified, the referenced module/volume will be automatically configured as a runtime
# dependency of this service, as well as a build dependency of this module.
#
# Note: Make sure to pay attention to the supported `accessModes` of the referenced volume. Unless it supports
# the ReadWriteMany access mode, you'll need to make sure it is not configured to be mounted by multiple
# services at the same time. Refer to the documentation of the module type in question to learn more.
module:
​
# If true, run the task's main container in privileged mode. Processes in privileged containers are essentially
# equivalent to root on the host. Defaults to false.
privileged:
​
# POSIX capabilities to add to the running task's main container.
addCapabilities:
​
# POSIX capabilities to remove from the running task's main container.
dropCapabilities:

description

A description of the module.
Type
Required
string
No

disabled

Set this to true to disable the module. You can use this with conditional template strings to disable modules based on, for example, the current environment or other variables (e.g. disabled: ${environment.name == "prod"}). This can be handy when you only need certain modules for specific environments, e.g. only for development.
Disabling a module means that any services, tasks and tests contained in it will not be deployed or run. It also means that the module is not built unless it is declared as a build dependency by another enabled module (in which case building this module is necessary for the dependant to be built).
If you disable the module, and its services, tasks or tests are referenced as runtime dependencies, Garden will automatically ignore those dependency declarations. Note however that template strings referencing the module's service or task outputs (i.e. runtime outputs) will fail to resolve when the module is disabled, so you need to make sure to provide alternate values for those if you're using them, using conditional expressions.
Type
Default
Required
boolean
false
No

include[]

Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or globs that should be regarded as the source files for this module. Files that do not match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.
Note that you can also exclude files using the exclude field or by placing .gardenignore files in your source tree, which use the same format as .gitignore files. See the Configuration Files guide for details.
Also note that specifying an empty list here means no sources should be included.
If neither include nor exclude is set, and the module has a Dockerfile, Garden will parse the Dockerfile and automatically set include to match the files and folders added to the Docker image (via the COPY and ADD directives in the Dockerfile).
If neither include nor exclude is set, and the module specifies a remote image, Garden automatically sets include to [].
Type
Required
array[posixPath]
No
Example:
include:
- Dockerfile
- my-app.js

exclude[]

Specify a list of POSIX-style paths or glob patterns that should be excluded from the module. Files that match these paths or globs are excluded when computing the version of the module, when responding to filesystem watch events, and when staging builds.
Note that you can also explicitly include files using the include field. If you also specify the include field, the files/patterns specified here are filtered from the files matched by include. See the Configuration Files guide for details.
Unlike the modules.exclude field in the project config, the filters here have no effect on which files and directories are watched for changes. Use the project modules.exclude field to affect those, if you have large directories that should not be watched for changes.
Type
Required
array[posixPath]
No
Example:
exclude:
- tmp/**/*
- '*.log'

repositoryUrl

A remote repository URL. Currently only supports git servers. Must contain a hash suffix pointing to a specific branch or tag, with the format: #<branch|tag>
Garden will import the repository source code into this module, but read the module's config from the local garden.yml file.
Type
Required
gitUrl | string
No
Example:
repositoryUrl: "git+https://github.com/org/repo.git#v2.0"

allowPublish

When false, disables pushing this module to remote registries.
Type
Default
Required
boolean
true
No

generateFiles[]

A list of files to write to the module directory when resolving this module. This is useful to automatically generate (and template) any supporting files needed for the module.
Type
Default
Required
array[object]
[]
No

generateFiles[].sourcePath

​generateFiles > sourcePath
POSIX-style filename to read the source file contents from, relative to the path of the module (or the ModuleTemplate configuration file if one is being applied). This file may contain template strings, much like any other field in the configuration.
Type
Required
posixPath
No

generateFiles[].targetPath

​generateFiles > targetPath
POSIX-style filename to write the resolved file contents to, relative to the path of the module source directory (for remote modules this means the root of the module repository, otherwise the directory of the module configuration).
Note that any existing file with the same name will be overwritten. If the path contains one or more directories, they will be automatically created if missing.
Type
Required
posixPath
Yes

generateFiles[].resolveTemplates

​generateFiles > resolveTemplates
By default, Garden will attempt to resolve any Garden template strings in source files. Set this to false to skip resolving template strings. Note that this does not apply when setting the value field, since that's resolved earlier when parsing the configuration.
Type
Default
Required
boolean
true
No

generateFiles[].value

​generateFiles > value
The desired file contents as a string.
Type
Required
string
No

variables

A map of variables scoped to this particular module. These are resolved before any other parts of the module configuration and take precedence over project-scoped variables. They may reference project-scoped variables, and generally use any template strings normally allowed when resolving modules.
Type
Required
object
No

varfile

Specify a path (relative to the module root) to a file containing variables, that we apply on top of the module-level variables field.
The format of the files is determined by the configured file's extension:
  • .env - Standard "dotenv" format, as defined by dotenv.
  • .yaml/.yml - YAML. The file must consist of a YAML document, which must be a map (dictionary). Keys may contain any value type.
  • .json - JSON. Must contain a single JSON object (not an array).
NOTE: The default varfile format will change to YAML in Garden v0.13, since YAML allows for definition of nested objects and arrays.
To use different module-level varfiles in different environments, you can template in the environment name to the varfile name, e.g. varfile: "my-module.${environment.name}.env (this assumes that the corresponding varfiles exist).
Type
Required
posixPath
No
Example:
varfile: "my-module.env"

buildArgs

Specify build arguments to use when building the container image.
Note: Garden will always set a GARDEN_MODULE_VERSION argument with the module version at build time.
Type
Default
Required
object
{}
No

extraFlags[]

Specify extra flags to use when building the container image. Note that arguments may not be portable across implementations.
Type
Required
array[string]
No

image

Specify the image name for the container. Should be a valid Docker image identifier. If specified and the module does not contain a Dockerfile, this image will be used to deploy services for this module. If specified and the module does contain a Dockerfile, this identifier is used when pushing the built image.
Type
Required
string
No

hotReload

Specifies which files or directories to sync to which paths inside the running containers of hot reload-enabled services when those files or directories are modified. Applies to this module's services, and to services with this module as their sourceModule.
Type
Required
object
No

hotReload.sync[]

​hotReload > sync
Specify one or more source files or directories to automatically sync into the running container.
Type
Required
array[object]
Yes

hotReload.sync[].source

POSIX-style path of the directory to sync to the target, relative to the module's top-level directory. Must be a relative path. Defaults to the module's top-level directory if no value is provided.
Type
Default
Required
posixPath
"."
No
Example:
hotReload:
...
sync:
- source: "src"

hotReload.sync[].target
