jib-container

Modules are deprecated and will be removed in version 0.14. Please use action-based configuration instead. See the 0.12 to Bonsai migration guide for details.

Description

Extends the container type to build the image with Jib. Use this to efficiently build container images for Java services. Check out the jib example to see it in action.

The image is always built locally, directly from the source directory (see the note on that below), before shipping the container image to the right place. You can set build.tarOnly: true to only build the image as a tarball.

By default (and when not using remote building), the image is pushed to the local Docker daemon, to match the behavior of and stay compatible with normal container actions.

When using remote building with the kubernetes provider, the image is synced to the cluster (where individual layers are cached) and then pushed to the deployment registry from there. This is to make sure any registry auth works seamlessly and exactly like for normal Docker image builds.

Please consult the Jib documentation for how to configure Jib in your Gradle or Maven project.

To provide additional arguments to Gradle/Maven when building, you can set the extraFlags field.

Important note: Unlike many other types, jib-container builds are done from the source directory instead of the build staging directory, because of how Java projects are often laid out across a repository. This means build dependency copy directives are effectively ignored, and any include/exclude statements and .gardenignore files will not impact the build result. _Note that you should still configure includes, excludes and/or a .gardenignore to tell Garden which files to consider as part of the Build version hash, to correctly detect whether a new build is required.**

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.

jib-container modules also export values that are available in template strings. See the Outputs section below for details.

# 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 `scan.exclude` field in the project config, the filters here have _no effect_ on which files and
# directories are watched for changes. Use the project `scan.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>

    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).

    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:
#
# * `.yaml`/`.yml` - YAML. The file must consist of a YAML document, which must be a map (dictionary). Keys may
# contain any value type. YAML format is used by default.
# * `.env` - Standard "dotenv" format, as defined by [dotenv](https://github.com/motdotla/dotenv#rules).
# * `.json` - JSON. Must contain a single JSON _object_ (not an array).
#
# _NOTE: The default varfile format was changed 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).

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

false

No

build.extraFlags[]

build > extraFlags

Specify extra flags to pass to maven/gradle when building the container image.

TypeRequired

array[string]

No

local

If set to true, Garden will run the build command, services, tests, and tasks in the module source directory, instead of in the Garden build directory (under .garden/build/).

Garden will therefore not stage the build for local modules. This means that include/exclude filters and ignore files are not applied to local modules, except to calculate the module/action versions.

If you use use build.dependencies[].copy for one or more build dependencies of this module, the copied files will be copied to the module source directory (instead of the build directory, as is the default case when local = false).

Note: This maps to the buildAtSource option in this module's generated Build action (if any).

TypeDefaultRequired

boolean

false

No

description

A description of the module.

TypeRequired

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.

TypeDefaultRequired

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 [].

TypeRequired

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 scan.exclude field in the project config, the filters here have no effect on which files and directories are watched for changes. Use the project scan.exclude field to affect those, if you have large directories that should not be watched for changes.

TypeRequired

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.

TypeRequired

gitUrl | string

No

Example:

repositoryUrl: "git+https://github.com/org/repo.git#v2.0"

allowPublish

When false, disables pushing this module to remote registries via the publish command.

TypeDefaultRequired

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.

TypeDefaultRequired

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 ConfigTemplate configuration file if one is being applied). This file may contain template strings, much like any other field in the configuration.

TypeRequired

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.

TypeRequired

posixPath

Yes
