By default, in docker mode:

  • database migrations are enabled and expected in /migrations dir
  • storage type is files and storage path is /data
  • configurations should be mounted to /configs
  • assets files served from /assets dir (since 0.2.0)

If storage is database and migration directory (DB_MIGRATIONS, default is /migrations) contains at least one SQL file (.sql) then migration will be applied automatically using sql-migrate.

For example

docker run -v $(pwd):/migrations:ro -e STORAGE=database -e DB_URL=:memory: -e DB_DIALECT=sqlite3

It also simplifies Kubernetes deployment, since you can use config maps for migrations and mount them as a volume.
