If you have to distribute a Zola based web site through Docker, it's easy to do with a multi-stage build.
Here is an example that builds the current folder, and put the result in a docker image that will be served by static-web-server, a minimalist web server written in rust.
Of course, you may want to replace the second stage with another static web server like Nginx or Apache.
FROM ghcr.io/getzola/zola:v0.17.1 as zola COPY . /project WORKDIR /project RUN ["zola", "build"] FROM ghcr.io/static-web-server/static-web-server:2 WORKDIR / COPY --from=zola /project/public /public
To build your website as a docker image, you then run:
docker build -t my_website:latest .
To test your site, just run the docker image and browse http://localhost:8000
docker run --rm -p 8000:80 my_website:latest
Note that, if you want to be able to use your docker image from multiple locations, you'll have to set
