Installing AWS CLI with Dockers

  • Setting up Docker container with help of plain Docker-Image.
  • Installing simple softwares like GIT & JDK on container.
  • Installing softwares like sudo, curl, zip, unzip, python3 and python3.8-venv, aws-cli, sam-cli onto our container.
  • Generating custom image with work(i.e. softwares installed) being saved.
  • Pushing the custom image to our public DockerHub repository.
docker image pull ubuntu
docker container run -it ubuntu
apt-get update && apt-get install git
apt-get update && apt-get install -y openjdk-8-jdk
javac -version
docker container commit -a “Ubuntu + JDK + Git image” 98 ubuJdkGitAdityaImage
docker container ls -a
docker container rm <container_id>
docker images
docker container run -itd <NAME_OF_DOCKER_IMAGE>
docker container run -itd <DOCKER_IMAGE_ID>
  • We had ran the container with “-i” option which means interactive mode.
  • We had ran the container with “-t” option which means, we shall connect to the container’s terminal as well.
  • We had ran the container with “-d” option which means, we shall run this container in detached mode.
  • In the fresh container that we just launched, observe that both GIT & JDK are already installed, as we did the same in it’s previous container from which we formed this image.
docker container ps -a
docker container exec -it <CONTAINER_ID> bash
apt update && apt upgrade
apt install curl
apt install sudo
apt-get install zip
apt-get install unzip
apt-get install python3
apt install python3.8-venv
curl "" -o ""
sudo ./awscli-bundle/install -i /usr/local/aws -b /usr/local/bin/aws
aws --version
docker cp 9090f8d966d0:/
unzip -d sam-installation
sudo ./sam-installation/install
sam --version
docker container ps -a
docker container commit -a "ubun+jdk+git+aws_sam docker image" 9090f8d966d0 ubu-with-aws-enhanced-image-by-aditya
docker images
docker login
docker image tag 80ae6e7c21e9 adityagoel123/ubuwithawsdockimage
docker images
docker image push adityagoel123/ubuwithawsdockimage
