From a recent docker conference, I learned about Docker App Packages. I’m pretty excited about these, as it makes it much simpler to build an application as a stack.
However, I also prefer deploying with Portainer, and Portainer would need modifications to support them. Specifically, it would need to:
- Support pulling a .dockerapp image repo as an dockerapp (instead of ‘just’ as a regular image - convention is the .dockerapp extension on the repo name)
- Add a stack deployment UI - another tab - that allows using a .dockerapp (either pre-pulled or by name), and then showing the parameters UI, including allowing you to upload/paste and alternative parameters.yml. (Dynamically showing them as textboxes similar to AWS CloudFormation would be nice, but more complex and carries a level of risk.)
- Stack monitoring/display enhancements to view these.
Has there been any internal discussion on this feature yet?
