As per title. I would like to configure automated builds on Docker Hub, as specified here.

My build context (the build context is a repository containing a Dockerfile) is hosted in GitLAB.

  • FWIW, the Docker Hub section of the docs you pointed to is listed in the Superseded products and tools section (on the leftside navbar), is it wise trying to build a new solution based on it? Oct 18, 2017 at 0:01

  • @DanCornilescu Thanks for the heads-up. I'm confused now as to what is the official way of automatically building and publishing an image from a public github repo.

This feature is not supported as the issue in the link says.

They promised it for late 2016 but now at 2017 the issue is still open.

One comment was to look for gitlab CI, which might be my best guess of workaround for now, waiting the Docker Hub version to come.

  • Yes there seems to be a way to push into a private registry hosted in gitlab itself. That looks neat.
