I’m currently running my personal website on Joomla, which is great but way too much for my purposes. Over the years, it has become really convoluted and I have installed plugins and started to use stuff just because it’s there… I have been wanting to simplify things for a long time and a couple of months ago stumbled over Ghost. Quite funny, actually… I started to play with Docker and installed Portainer for orchestration and Ghost is one template that comes with Portainer.
Anyways, I have been running a test instance and playing with it for a few months and so far like it. I got a bit into handlebar and successfully started modifying a theme for me.
My next step would be to create a custom container image which would include some things like ghost-image-purge and an alternative storage connector. For that I could use a little help as I’m still a bit new to Docker. I tried stitching something together from some docs of the cloudinary connector. I’m looking more at S3 or Google Drive, though. But basically, I’m trying to understand how stuff can be included through a Dockerfile. So far my Dockerfile looks like that:
FROM ghost:latest USER root RUN npm install -g --production --loglevel verbose --no-save ghost-purge-images
I’d be grateful for some help with integrating the S3 and/or the Google Drive connector as well as some background on how to include plugins through a Dockerfile.
