Docker Images geopython/pygeoapi:latest and versions are available on DockerHub .

Each Docker Image contains a default configuration default.config.yml with the project’s test data and WFS3 datasets.

You can override this default config via Docker Volume mapping or by extending the Docker Image and copying in your config.

See an example for the geoapi demo server for the latter method. Depending on your config you may need specific backends to be available.

Running - Basics

By default this Image will start a pygeoapi Docker Container using gunicorn on internal port 80.

To run with default built-in config and data:

docker run -p 5000:80 -it geopython/pygeoapi run
# or simply
docker run -p 5000:80 -it geopython/pygeoapi

then browse to http://localhost:5000

You can also run all unit tests to verify:

docker run -it geopython/pygeoapi test

Running - Overriding the default config

Normally you would override the default.config.yml with your own pygeoapi config. This can be effected best via Docker Volume Mapping.

For example if your config is in my.config.yml:

docker run -p 5000:80 -v $(pwd)/my.config.yml:/pygeoapi/local.config.yml -it geopython/pygeoapi

But better/cleaner is to use docker-compose. Something like:

version: "3"
    image: geopython/pygeoapi:latest
      - ./my.config.yml:/pygeoapi/local.config.yml

Or you can create a Dockerfile extending the base Image and COPY in your config:

FROM geopython/pygeoapi:latest
COPY ./my.config.yml /pygeoapi/local.config.yml

See how the demo server is setup (here)

Running - Running on a sub-path

By default the pygeoapi Docker Image will run from the root path /. If you need to run from a sub-path and have all internal URLs correct you need to set SCRIPT_NAME environment variable.

For example to run with my.config.yml on http://localhost:5000/mypygeoapi:

docker run -p 5000:80 -e SCRIPT_NAME='/mypygeoapi' -v $(pwd)/my.config.yml:/pygeoapi/local.config.yml -it geopython/pygeoapi

browse to http://localhost:5000/mypygeoapi

Or within a docker-compose.yml full example:

version: "3"
    image: geopython/pygeoapi:latest
      - ./my.config.yml:/pygeoapi/local.config.yml
      - "5000:80"
     - SCRIPT_NAME=/pygeoapi

See pygeoapi demo service for an full example.
