Re: Suggested ways for deploying odoo through docker-odoo-project

When you work in dev locally, you wouldn't really need to COPY the files in the docker image, as, as you say, there is the volume.
However, as soon as you want to deploy, you should not use the git repository anymore.
The workflow we use is to build the image in CI (hence the COPY), run the tests in a container started from the new image, when tests are successful, the image is pushed to a registry. From there, the image can be deployed to test/staging/production environments.

Hi folks,

I’m currently using camptocamp’s docker-odoo-project and akretion’s ak tool for local development and testing. It works like charm, thank you guys for building the great tools.

I have one question though.  Why do we need either use on-build base image or COPY instruction in our own Dockerfile to copy the files and folders into container while we’ve already set the volume like `./odoo:/odoo` in the `docker-compose.yml` file. Is it a redundant job, or did I miss any point here? My guess is that when we copy everything in the container, we can build our own project specific docker image to be used in deployment process. This leads to my second question. How can we use the docker-odoo-project for deployment process? Simple ideas, suggestions or a sophisticated container orchestrating solutions are all welcomed, Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards,
