Docker for Tiki Development


Why Docker

Docker allows you to run the exact same environment on different machines, thus preventing bugs related to using different operating systems (e.g., Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux), different packages versions (e.g., Apache HTTP Server, PHP, MariaDB, ...), and therefore different environments (e.g., development, staging, production). Less time dealing with environment issues = more time developing awesome features!

Start Developing

This guide assumes that you are comfortable with developer tools like bash/sh, docker, dotenv and git. If you are not, and you are only looking for testing Tiki, you can access our online Tiki demos here: https://tiki.org/Demo If you are a developer but are not comfortable with those tools, you can have a look at the Resources part first.

Developing

1. "Do the git thing"

Fork Tiki ( https://gitlab.com/tikiwiki/tiki ) and clone your fork. Tiki is a big repository, so you can decide to clone only the latest history (--depth=1) or only the specific branch you need (--single-branch).

2. Check out the relevant branch

Go into the repository you've just cloned and check out the Tiki version you want to work with:

e.g.:
git checkout 20.x

3. Clone tiki-docker

In that same directory, clone tiki-docker:

git clone git@gitlab.com:tikiwiki/tiki-docker.git laradock


P.S.: you don't have to call that directory laradock, but default sensible settings are using this name. If you want to use your own name, you'll have to edit a few files (-+ .env+-, and docker-compose files).

4. Check out the environment you need

tiki-docker comes with environments for the different versions of Tiki. It will then use the correct PHP, mariadb, elasticsearch, etc... versions.

In your Tiki source, enter the tiki-docker source:

cd laradock


then check out your environment:

git checkout tiki-20.x

5. Custom your variables if necessary

tiki-docker works out of the box, but you can set up your own variables, stored in the included .env file. You may want to edit for example the apache2/nginx http host port, mysql/mariadb database name and credentials, although it is not necessary.

You are encouraged to change the DATA_PATH_HOST variable to a unique project name. This is the place where your data will be stored (mysql/mariadb, elasticsearch, etc...) so that even if your containers are removed, your development data is not. If you use the same DATA_PATH_HOST for different projects, the projects will overwrite each other's data.

6. Start the environment with the services you need

In your tiki-docker source, you can now start your environment with the services of your choices:

docker-compose up -d apache2 mariadb elasticsearch maildev phpmyadmin adminer workspace
etc....

7. Enjoy

You can now access Tiki at http://localhost:PORTNUMBER. The PORTNUMBER will depend of the http host port variable configured in the .env file.

To access your workspace and run composer commands, tiki commands, etc..., in your tiki-docker source, run:

docker-compose exec workspace bash


When you finished developing, you can stop your containers. In your tiki-docker source, run:

docker-compose stop

Tips

Create aliases

Rather than typing every time docker-compose up -d apache2 mariadb..., you might want to create aliases, like for example devup. Same for stopping your containers: devdown, or going into your workspace: devbash.

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
