Ansible – 1- Setting up environments

We will setup the ansible workspace in AWS we need to create one  ‘ansible-host’ and two node

If you dont setup AWS vpc you can use(dev-prod) cloudformation template

Lets create the machines

OS: Ubuntu 16.04

connect to ‘ansible-host’ and install the ansible

ubuntu@ip-200-30-136-143:~$ ansible –version

Perfect! we successfully installed the ansible!






MacOsx Docker Start and Stop


#!/usr/bin/env bash

case $1 in
    echo $'usage: docker-start\n\nStarts Docker ( on macOS and waits until the Docker environment is initialized.'
    exit 0
(( $# )) && { echo "ARGUMENT ERROR: Unexpected argument(s) specified. Use -h for help." >&2; exit 2; }

[[ $(uname) == 'Darwin' ]] || { echo "This function only runs on macOS." >&2; exit 2; }

echo "-- Starting, if necessary..."

open -g -a || exit

# Wait for the server to start up, if applicable.  
while ! docker system info &>/dev/null; do
  (( i++ == 0 )) && printf %s '-- Waiting for Docker to finish starting up...' || printf '.'
  sleep 1
(( i )) && printf '\n'

echo "-- Docker is ready."


#!/usr/bin/env bash

case $1 in
    echo $'usage: docker-stop\n\nStops Docker ( on macOS.'    
    exit 0
(( $# )) && { echo "ARGUMENT ERROR: Unexpected argument(s) specified. Use -h for help." >&2; exit 2; }

[[ $(uname) == 'Darwin' ]] || { echo "This function only runs on macOS." >&2; exit 2; }

echo "-- Quitting, if running..."

osascript - <<'EOF' || exit
tell application "Docker"
  if it is running then quit it
end tell

echo "-- Docker is stopped."
echo "Caveat: Restarting it too quickly can cause errors."

Setting up Docker Private Registry

create a folder which name is docker-private-registry

then install docker compose

pip install docker-compose

then create the docker-compose.yml

image: registry
– STORAGE_PATH=/registry
– registry-stuff:/registry
– “5000:5000”

run the compose file with

docker-compose up

then you will see the blank page when you visit http://localhost:5000

private registry is done but i found the nice ui for registry


How To Dockerize Jenkins

create a sample directory  with mkdir jenkinsci and create a new Dockerfile

cd jenkinsci

touch Dockerfile


FROM jenkins:2.0

USER root
RUN apt-get update \
&& apt-get install -y sudo \
&& rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*
RUN echo “jenkins ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL” >> /etc/sudoers

USER jenkins
COPY plugins.txt /usr/share/jenkins/plugins.txt
RUN /usr/local/bin/ /usr/share/jenkins/plugins.txt

then create a plugins.txt file for jenkins plugins


save it then build the jenkins image

sudo docker build -t jenkinsci .

now we must to run container

sudo docker run -d -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
-v $(which docker):/usr/bin/docker -p 8080:8080 jenkinsci

by the way we mapped docker socket ,binary  for running docker commands in container

this command will return container job id. Dont clear the console!

when you visit the http://localhost:8080 you will see the jenkins default login screen


you can find the administator password with

docker logs <job_id>


Jenkins initial setup is required. An admin user has been created and a password generated.
Please use the following password to proceed to installation:


You can continue the next steps then you will see the Jenkins Home screen, then we must the test docker command with docker-test project

  • Create a Freestyle Project
  • Add shell build step then save it
  • sudo docker run hello-world

  • Run the build and look at the build logs

run the build.


Well, you dockerized jenkins 🙂 awesome!  In next chapter we will integrate jenkins volume
