In a hurry? No sweat! Here’s a quick start to using ufo that takes only a few minutes. For this example, we will use a sinatra app from tongueroo/hi. The first
ufo init command sets up the ufo directory structure in your project. The second
ufo ship command deploys your code to an AWS ECS service.
gem install ufo git clone https://github.com/tongueroo/hi.git cd hi ufo init --app=hi --image=tongueroo/hi ufo ship hi-web
ufo ship hi-web command does the following:
- Builds the Docker image and pushes it to a registry
- Builds the ECS task definitions and registry them to ECS
- Updates the ECS Service
You should see something similar to this:
$ ufo init --app=hi --image=tongueroo/hi Setting up ufo project... create .env create .ufo/settings.yml create .ufo/task_definitions.rb create .ufo/templates/main.json.erb create .ufo/variables/base.rb create .ufo/variables/development.rb create .ufo/variables/production.rb create Dockerfile create bin/deploy append .gitignore Starter ufo files created. $ ufo ship hi-web Building docker image with: docker build -t tongueroo/hi:ufo-2017-09-10T15-00-19-c781aaf -f Dockerfile . .... Software shipped! $
Congratulations! You have successfully deployed code to AWS ECS with ufo. It was really that simple 😁
Note: This quick start does require that you have a docker working on your environment. For docker installation instructions refer to to the official docker installation guide.
