    Imagine you created a abp Angular startup template tiered or non teired and you want to run it immediatly on Docker

    what Dockerfiles and docker-compose files you would need?

    Hello @buaziz,

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    For all the apps, its good to have DbMigrator project dockerized. (Either let visual studio create a dockerfile for you or you can write your own)

    For angular, there are 2 ways to dockerize. One of them is using caching and restoring npm packages inside container. Other one is building the dist outiside the container and only copy the dist in the dockerfile.

    For non-tiered backend, you need to dockerize HttpApi.Host project. For tiered backend, you need to dockerize both HttpApi.Host and IdentityServer projects.

    I hope it was helpful.

    Thanks @gterdem for your help.

    the next problem is to have a dynamic environment for angular for docker-compose.

    I solved this by using the below

    change to this

    import { Config } from '@abp/ng.core';
    const clientbaseUrl = 'ANGULAR_CLIENT_URL_BASE';
    const hostbaseUrl = 'API_HOST_URL_BASE';
    export const environment = {
      production: true,
      application: {
        name: 'demo',
      oAuthConfig: {
        issuer: hostbaseUrl,
        redirectUri: clientbaseUrl,
        clientId: 'Demo_App',
        responseType: 'code',
        scope: 'offline_access Demo',
      apis: {
        default: {
          url: hostbaseUrl,
          rootNamespace: 'MYPROJECT.Demo',
    } as Config.Environment;

    add Dockerfile to angular with this

    ### STAGE 1: Build ###
    FROM node:12.18.3-alpine AS build
    WORKDIR /app
    COPY package.json yarn.lock ./
    RUN yarn install
    COPY . .
    RUN yarn build --prod
    ### STAGE 2: Run ###
    FROM nginx as final
    ## Remove default nginx website
    RUN rm -rf /usr/share/nginx/html/*
    COPY --from=build /app/dist/myproject /usr/share/nginx/html
    COPY --from=build /app/ /
    CMD ["sh", ""]

    add file to angular root

    #!/usr/bin/env sh
    find '/usr/share/nginx/html' -name '*.js' -exec sed -i -e 's,ANGULAR_CLIENT_URL_BASE,'"$ANGULAR_CLIENT_URL_BASE"',g' {} \;
    find '/usr/share/nginx/html' -name '*.js' -exec sed -i -e 's,API_HOST_URL_BASE,'"$API_HOST_URL_BASE"',g' {} \;
    nginx -g "daemon off;"

    and now I can use these in my docker-compose file

        # restart: always
          - ANGULAR_CLIENT_URL_BASE=http://localhost:4200
          - API_HOST_URL_BASE=https://localhost:44366

    this took many hours to solve :(
