Interactive shell using Docker Compose
To create an interactive shell using Docker Compose, you can specify the command to run in the container as an interactive shell. Here's an example
docker-compose.yml file that launches an interactive shell container:
version: '3' services: myservice: image: myimage tty: true stdin_open: true command: sh
In this example, the
myservice container is launched with the
myimage image, and the
stdin_open options are set to
true to enable an interactive shell. The
command option is set to
sh to run a shell as the default command.
You can then launch the container and start an interactive shell by running:
This will start the container and attach your terminal to it, allowing you to enter commands in the interactive shell.
Note that if the container is running a long-lived process, such as a web server, you may need to use a tool like
docker exec to start an interactive shell in the running container. To do this, you can run:
docker exec -it <container-name-or-id> sh
This will start a new shell session in the running container, which you can use to run commands interactively.
