I’m thinking of using Docker to build my dependencies on a Continuous Integration (CI) server, so that I don’t have to install all the runtimes and libraries on the agents themselves.
To achieve this I would need to copy the build artifacts that are built inside the container back into the host. Is that possible?
In order to copy a file from a container to the host, you can use the command
docker cp <containerId>:/file/path/within/container /host/path/target
Here’s an example:
$ sudo docker cp goofy_roentgen:/out_read.jpg .
Here goofy_roentgen is the container name I got from the following command:
$ sudo docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES 1b4ad9311e93 bamos/openface "/bin/bash" 33 minutes ago Up 33 minutes 0.0.0.0:8000->8000/tcp, 0.0.0.0:9000->9000/tcp goofy_roentgen
You can also use (part of) the Container ID. The following command is equivalent to the first
$ sudo docker cp 1b4a:/out_read.jpg .
