I'm not a Ruby/JRuby programmer and I find it quite difficult to get all the necessary build tools in place to build and test my modifications that I'm doing to some of the existing Logstash plugins.
Another user created a topic here that had no replies: Developing a Logstash plugin within Docker
So is there already like an existing docker image/Dockerfile that can be used that has all the necessary tools in place to quickly build and unit test plugins?
Getting everything to work as outlined at How to write a Logstash input plugin | Logstash Reference [7.12] | Elastic is simply way too much effort if you're not doing this kind of development on a day to day basis.
If not, then below is the Dockerfile that I have created, that is based off the official elastic Logstash 7.12.0 image:
FROM elastic/logstash:7.12.0 USER root # Install rvm and ruby 2.7.2 directly from downloaded binary, which doesn't require rebuild RUN gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6956105BD0E739499BDB \ && curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io -o /tmp/rvm.sh \ && cat /tmp/rvm.sh | bash -s stable --ruby=2.7.2 # Necessary for path to ruby 2.7.2 SHELL ["/bin/bash", "-c"] # rvm install jruby will install openjdk RUN source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm \ && rvm install jruby \ && export JAVA_HOME=$(readlink -f /etc/alternatives/jre_openjdk) \ && gem install bundler \ && rm /tmp/rvm.sh RUN yum -y update \ && yum install -y git \ && yum clean all \ && git clone https://github.com/elastic/logstash-devutils \ && export JAVA_HOME=$(readlink -f /etc/alternatives/jre_openjdk) \ && source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm \ && rvm use jruby \ && pushd logstash-devutils \ && export LOGSTASH_PATH=/usr/share/logstash \ && bundle install \ && popd
Then the above Dockerfile can be built using like:
docker build . -t logstash-plugin-builder
And then the image can be used as follow, where the plugin src is in the src folder:
docker run --rm -it -v $(pwd)/src:/tmp/src logstash-plugin-builder bash
And then inside the shell of that image, run the below commands, which will build, test and make a .gem file:
export JAVA_HOME=$(readlink -f /etc/alternatives/jre_openjdk) export LOGSTASH_PATH=/usr/share/logstash source /usr/local/rvm/scripts/rvm rvm use jruby cd /tmp/src bundle install bundle exec rspec --seed=11325 gem build *.gemspec
I had to use ruby 2.7.2, since ruby 3.0.0 via rvm didn't manage to install.
