Docker Compose for Swarm Mode
Drop in replacement for docker-compose that works with swarm mode introduced in Docker 1.12 (and converter to Kubernetes format).
Docker 1.12 with its new Swarm mode has been out for a while, but Docker Compose - the great tool for running multi-container configurations - still (1.5+ months after Docker release) doesn't support it.
The only thing they offer is generating a DAB file from your
docker-compose.yml and deploying it to Docker.
However DAB doesn't support a lot of
docker-compose.yml stuff and deploying it to Docker is an experimental feature that is not supported yet in the latest 1.12.1 release.
So you should either stick with the previous version of Docker or throw out all your docker-compose files and run a bunch of long
docker service ... commands.
Neither option looked good to me so, as a temporary solution (I still hope Docker Compose with swarm mode support will be released soon), I've created a script that parses a
docker-compose.yml file, generates
docker service ... commands for you and runs them.
After some stability and network issues with Docker swarm mode we've decided to try our luck with Kubernetes.
Several existing compose-to-kubernetes translation tools have failed on our compose files, so I decided to quick add such functionality to docker-compose-swarm-mode.
docker-compose-swarm-mode is available on PyPI.
pip install docker-compose-swarm-mode
Or just download the
Or use Docker image ddrozdov/docker-compose-swarm-mode, e.g.:
docker run --rm -ti -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /some/dir/with/compose/files:/compose ddrozdov/docker-compose-swarm-mode -f /compose/docker-compose.yml --dry-run up
The script tries its best to support the CLI of the original Docker Compose so just use it as you would use Docker Compose.
--dry-run option if you'd first like to check what
docker commands are to be executed.
The script currently doesn't support all docker-compose commands, options, and
yml keys. It just supports what I've needed in my projects so far.
See the usage help with
-h flag and try the script with your
docker-compose.yml, it'll tell you if there are unsupported keys.
In case you need something that is not supported yet, feel free to create an issue and/or submit a pull request.

Convert to Kubernetes format (since 2.0.0)
The script can also be used to convert compose files to Kubernetes resource specifications:
docker-compose-swarm-mode -f docker-compose.yml -p project convert > kubernetes.yml
Currently only the things under top-level
services key are converted.
For each compose's service one Kubernetes Service and one Deployment are generated.
Support for some keys is not yet implemented (see TODOs in the code).
Keys that are silently ignored because they are not supported by Kubernetes:
