Building Nginx-LE

Switches

The build command takes a number of switches.

image

The required --image switch sets the docker image/tag name (repo/image:version) for the image.
e.g. --image=noojee/nginx-le:1.0.0
The switch can be abbreviated to -i.

update-dcli

The optional flag --update-dcli causes the build to pull the latest version of dart/dcli rather than using the docker cache instance.
You only need to add this switch if you have an existing build and you need to update the dcli/dart version.

debug

The optional flag --debug outputs additional build information.
The flag can be abbreviated to -d.
