Configuring CFML Docker containers through environment variables
Containers have become the cornerstone of modern development, but hardcoded configurations can complicate deployment and limit their usefulness. There’s no need to lock yourself in to local-only development, clutter your deployment pipeline with multiple configurations, or worst of all … expose secret keys and passwords in your git repos!
Let’s discover together how we can create flexible configurations, distribute our projects reliably and securely among a myriad of environments and throughout our application’s lifecycle. We’ll take a look at the different environment variables used in Docker images for Adobe Coldfusion, Lucee and Commandbox, as well as creating our own!
