Plugin triggers

Plugin triggers (formerly pluginhooks) are a good way to jack into existing Dokku infrastructure. You can use them to modify the output of various Dokku commands or override internal configuration.

Plugin triggers are simply scripts that are executed by the system. You can use any language you want, so long as the script:

  • Is executable
  • Has the proper language requirements installed

For instance, if you wanted to write a plugin trigger in PHP, you would need to have php installed and available on the CLI prior to plugin trigger invocation.

The following is an example for the nginx-hostname plugin trigger. It reverses the hostname that is provided to nginx during deploys. If you created an executable file named nginx-hostname with the following code in your plugin trigger, it would be invoked by Dokku during the normal app deployment process:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

APP="$1"; SUBDOMAIN="$2"; VHOST="$3"

NEW_SUBDOMAIN=`echo $SUBDOMAIN | rev`
echo "$NEW_SUBDOMAIN.$VHOST"

Available plugin triggers

There are a number of plugin-related triggers. These can be optionally implemented by plugins and allow integration into the standard Dokku setup/teardown process.

The following plugin triggers describe those available to a Dokku installation. As well, there is an example for each trigger that you can use as templates for your own plugin development.

The example plugin trigger code is not guaranteed to be implemented as in within dokku, and are merely simplified examples. Please look at the Dokku source for larger, more in-depth examples.

post-config-update

  • Description: Allows you to get notified when one or more configs is added or removed. Action can be set or unset
  • Invoked by: dokku config:set, dokku config:unset
  • Arguments: $APP set|unset key1=VALUE1 key2=VALUE2
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

# TODO

bind-external-ip

  • Description: Allows you to disable binding to the external box ip
  • Invoked by: dokku deploy
  • Arguments: $APP
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Force always binding to the docker ip, no matter
# what the settings are for a given app.

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

echo false

check-deploy

  • Description: Allows you to run checks on a deploy before Dokku allows the container to handle requests.
  • Invoked by: dokku deploy
  • Arguments: $APP $CONTAINER_ID $PROC_TYPE $PORT $IP
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Disables deploys of containers based on whether the
# `DOKKU_DISABLE_DEPLOY` env var is set to `true` for an app

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

  echo -e "\033[31m\033[1mDeploys disabled, sorry.\033[0m"
  exit 1
fi

comands help and commands <PLUGIN_NAME>:help

  • Description: Your plugin should implement a help command in your commands file to take advantage of this plugin trigger. commands help is used by dokku help to aggregate all plugins abbreviated help output. Implementing <PLUGIN_NAME>:help in your commands file gives users looking for help, a more detailed output. 'commands help' must be implemented inside the commands plugin file. It's recommended that PLUGIN_NAME:help be added to the commands file to ensure consistency among community plugins and give you a new avenue to share rich help content with your user.
  • Invoked by: dokku help and commands <PLUGIN_NAME>:help
  • Arguments: None
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Outputs help for the derp plugin

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

case "$1" in
  help | hello:help)
    help_content_func () {
      declare desc="return help_content string"
      cat<<help_content
    hello <app>, Says "Hello <app>"
    hello:world, Says "Hello world"
help_content
    }

    if [[ $1 = "hello:help" ]] ; then
        echo -e 'Usage: dokku hello[:world] [<app>]'
        echo ''
        echo 'Say Hello World.'
        echo ''
        echo 'Example:'
        echo ''
        echo '$ dokku hello:world'
        echo 'Hello world'
        echo ''
        echo 'Additional commands:'
        help_content_func | sort | column -c2 -t -s,
    else

  • Invoked by: dokku git-hook, dokku ps:rebuild
  • Arguments: $APP $REV $REFNAME
  • Example:
#!/bin/bash
# Gives Dokku the ability to support multiple branches for a given service
# Allowing you to have multiple staging environments on a per-branch basis

reference_app=$1
refname=$3
newrev=$2
APP=${refname/*\//}.$reference_app

if [[ ! -d "$DOKKU_ROOT/$APP" ]]; then
  REFERENCE_REPO="$DOKKU_ROOT/$reference_app
  git clone --bare --shared --reference "$REFERENCE_REPO" "$REFERENCE_REPO" "$DOKKU_ROOT/$APP" > /dev/null
fi
plugn trigger receive-app $APP $newrev

retire-container-failed

  • Description: Allows you to run commands if/when retiring old containers has failed
  • Invoked by: dokku deploy
  • Arguments: $APP
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Send an email when a container failed to retire

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x
APP="$1"; HOSTNAME=$(hostname -s)

mail -s "$APP containers on $HOSTNAME failed to retire" ops@example.com

tags-create

  • Description: Allows you to run commands once a tag for an application image has been added
  • Invoked by: dokku tags:create
  • Arguments: $APP $IMAGE_TAG
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Upload an application image to docker hub

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x
APP="$1"; IMAGE_TAG="$2"; IMAGE=$(get_app_image_name $APP $IMAGE_TAG)

IMAGE_ID=$(docker inspect --format '{{ .Id }}' $IMAGE)
docker tag -f $IMAGE_ID $DOCKER_HUB_USER/$APP:$IMAGE_TAG
docker push $DOCKER_HUB_USER/$APP:$IMAGE_TAG

tags-destroy

  • Description: Allows you to run commands once a tag for an application image has been removed
  • Invoked by: dokku tags:destroy
  • Arguments: $APP $IMAGE_TAG
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Remove an image tag from docker hub

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x
APP="$1"; IMAGE_TAG="$2"

some code to remove a docker hub tag because it's not implemented in the CLI....

uninstall

  • Description: Used to cleanup after itself.
  • Invoked by: dokku plugin:uninstall
  • Arguments: $PLUGIN
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Cleanup up extra containers created

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

PLUGIN="$1"

[[ "$PLUGIN" = "my-plugin" ]] && docker rmi -f "${PLUGIN_IMAGE_DEPENDENCY}"

To avoid uninstalling other plugins make sure to check the plugin name like shown in the example.

update

  • Description: Can be used to run plugin updates on a regular interval. You can schedule the invoker in a cron-task to ensure your system gets regular updates.
  • Invoked by: dokku plugin:update.
  • Arguments: None
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Update the herokuish image from git source

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

cd /root/dokku
sudo BUILD_STACK=true make install

user-auth

This is a special plugin trigger that is executed on every command run. As Dokku sometimes internally invokes the dokku command, special care should be taken to properly handle internal command redirects.

Note that the trigger should exit as follows:

  • 0 to continue running as normal
  • 1 to halt execution of the command

The SSH_USER is the original ssh user. If you are running remote commands, this user will typically be dokku, and as such should not be trusted when checking permissions. If you are connected via ssh as a different user who then invokes dokku, the value of this variable will be that user's name (root, myuser, etc.).

The SSH_NAME is the NAME variable set via the sshcommand acl-add command. If you have set a user via the dokku-installer, this value will be set to admin. For installs via debian package, this value may be default. For reference, the following command can be run as the root user to specify a specific NAME for a given ssh key:

sshcommand acl-add dokku NAME < $PATH_TO_SSH_KEY

Note that the NAME value is set at the first ssh key match. If an ssh key is set in the /home/dokku/.ssh/authorized_keys multiple times, the first match will decide the value.

  • Description: Allows you to deny access to a Dokku command by either ssh user or associated ssh-command NAME user.
  • Invoked by dokku
  • Arguments: $SSH_USER $SSH_NAME $DOKKU_COMMAND
  • Example:
#!/usr/bin/env bash
# Allow root/admin users to do everything
# Deny plugin access to default users
# Allow access to all other commands

set -eo pipefail; [[ $DOKKU_TRACE ]] && set -x

SSH_USER=$1
SSH_NAME=$2
shift 2
[[ "$SSH_USER" == "root" ]] && exit 0
[[ "$SSH_NAME" == "admin" ]] && exit 0
[[ "$SSH_NAME" == "default" && $1 == plugin:* ]] && exit 1
exit 0
