In this scenario, you'll learn how to create pod using YAML. We will also run Flask python application as a kubernetes pod.

In this scenario, you learned how to build image using Dockerfile and create pods using YAML.

Kubernetes Pods with YAML

Step 1 of 4

Step 1 - Create Docker Image

In this step, we will create docker image. To complete this step, you need to complete following tasks:

Task : Create Dockerfile

To complete this task, you need to copy the following code:

FROM ubuntu
RUN apt-get update
RUN apt-get --yes install python python-pip
RUN pip install flask
COPY app.py /opt/app.py
ENTRYPOINT FLASK_APP=/opt/app.py flask run --host=

This tells Docker to:

  • Build an image starting with the ubuntu image.
  • Install the Python dependencies.
  • Copy app.py into the path /opt in the image.
  • EXPOSE web server via port 5000
  • Using the ENTRYPOINT to specify starting command to the container.

Task : Run Docker Build

Using the docker build command to build the image. You can give the image a friendly name by using the -t <image_name> option.

To complete this task you need to execute the following code: docker build --tag flask:latest .
