How do you script a Dockerfile?

A Dockerfile is a file of same name with no extension. It typically contains three parts or steps in which a container shall be built.

  1. Specify a base Image
  2. Instructions on how to build and deploy the application onto the base Image
  3. A Startup command to specify how the container should behave once started
