So you got PhotonOS running in your DC! Awesome. Now you’ve been playing around with Cloud Native Apps, and came across habitat and want to give it a shot. Here’s my notes on how I got a habitat .hart package, as a docker container, running in a Photon end point.

I’m going to use my habitat-jenkins as the demo.

First go ahead and clone the repo and build the .hart locally in your hab studio:

$ git clone
$ cd habitat-jenkins
$ hab studio enter
[1][default:/src:0]# build
[2][default:/src:0]# hab start YOURORIGIN/jenkins-war # verify everything comes up
[3][default:/src:0]# hab pkg export docker YOURORIGIN/jenkins-war # export to a container
[4][default:/src:0]# logout # leave the studio
$ docker run -p 8080:8080 -it YOURORIGIN/jenkins-war:latest # run container

Now lets get the container over to the PhotonOS box:

$ docker save jjasghar/jenkins-war:latest > jenkins.tar
$ scp jenkins.tar root@PHOTONHOST://root/ # this can be where ever, but demowise...
$ ssh root@PHOTONHOST
root@PHOTONHOST [ ~ ]# docker load < jenkins.tar
de4244ee79bb: Loading layer [==================================================>] 431.6 MB/431.6 MB
Loaded image: YOURORIGIN/jenkins-war:latest
root@PHOTONHOST [ ~ ]# logout

Ok, lets verify everything is what we expect.

$ export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://PHOTONHOST:2375
$ docker images --all

After this, you can run something like:

$ docker run -d -p 8080:8080 YOURORIGIN/jenkins-war:latest
$ docker logs dbd600327638f247fd5851c8b7cdbf08a2c09b12908cc38bdeb51b0060d37b7c # to get the API key
