Drone plugin uses Docker-in-Docker to build and publish Docker images to a container registry. For the usage information and a listing of the available options please take a look at the docs.


Build the binaries with the following commands:

export GOOS=linux
export GOARCH=amd64
export CGO_ENABLED=0
export GO111MODULE=on

go build -v -a -tags netgo -o release/linux/amd64/drone-docker ./cmd/drone-docker go build -v -a -tags netgo -o release/linux/amd64/drone-gcr ./cmd/drone-gcr go build -v -a -tags netgo -o release/linux/amd64/drone-ecr ./cmd/drone-ecr go build -v -a -tags netgo -o release/linux/amd64/drone-acr ./cmd/drone-acr go build -v -a -tags netgo -o release/linux/amd64/drone-heroku ./cmd/drone-heroku


Build the Docker images with the following commands:

docker build \
  --label$(date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ") \
  --label org.label-schema.vcs-ref=$(git rev-parse --short HEAD) \
  --file docker/docker/Dockerfile.linux.amd64 --tag plugins/docker .

docker build
--label$(date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ")
--label org.label-schema.vcs-ref=$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
--file docker/gcr/Dockerfile.linux.amd64 --tag plugins/gcr .

docker build
--label$(date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ")
--label org.label-schema.vcs-ref=$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
--file docker/ecr/Dockerfile.linux.amd64 --tag plugins/ecr .

docker build
--label$(date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ")
--label org.label-schema.vcs-ref=$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
--file docker/acr/Dockerfile.linux.amd64 --tag plugins/acr .

docker build
--label$(date -u +"%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:%SZ")
--label org.label-schema.vcs-ref=$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)
--file docker/heroku/Dockerfile.linux.amd64 --tag plugins/heroku .


Notice: Be aware that the Docker plugin currently requires privileged capabilities, otherwise the integrated Docker daemon is not able to start.

docker run --rm \
  -e PLUGIN_TAG=latest \
