buildah-add — Add the contents of a file, URL, or a directory to a container.

Synopsis

buildah add [options] container src [[src ...] dest]

Description

Adds the contents of a file, URL, or a directory to a container's working directory or a specified location in the container.  If a local source file appears to be an archive, its contents are extracted and added instead of the archive file itself.  If a local directory is specified as a source, its contents are copied to the destination.

Options

--chown owner:group
Sets the user and group ownership of the destination content.
--quiet
Refrain from printing a digest of the added content.

Example

buildah add containerID '/myapp/app.conf' '/myapp/app.conf'

buildah add --chown myuser:mygroup containerID '/myapp/app.conf' '/myapp/app.conf'

buildah add containerID '/home/myuser/myproject.go'

buildah add containerID '/home/myuser/myfiles.tar' '/tmp'

buildah add containerID '/tmp/workingdir' '/tmp/workingdir'

buildah add containerID ' ⟨https://github.com/projectatomic/buildah/blob/master/README.md'⟩ '/tmp'

buildah add containerID 'passwd' 'certs.d' /etc
