What is a manifest file?
A manifest file allows you to be more explicit about your stack composition and control settings that are not usually available through the user interface or Cloud 66 toolbelt. The file describes the setup of the components that run your stack.
This is a sample manifest.yml to tell Cloud 66 to provision one server for a Docker stack to run your services.
production: docker: configuration: version: 1.12.6 servers: server: unique_name: dockernodea region: us-east-1 size: m3.medium vendor: aws key_name: Default
What is service configuration?
Service configuration allows you to be more explicit about your Docker services and control settings that are not usually available through the user interface or Cloud 66 toolbelt. These settings describe the setup of your services, and these are just some examples of the service configurations you can make:
- Defining build and deploy commands
- Specifying a central logging folder
- Setting port definitions for your containers
- Mount volumes into your containers
- Set dependencies between your containers
