about this example

BuildKit is an advanced build toolkit for Docker that improves performance, storage management, and security. This diagram details a Docker build sequence using BuildKit:

  • Command Initiation: Initiates with the docker buildx build command from the terminal to BuildKit.
  • Build Process: Demonstrates the request and response flow for build status, context, and secrets between BuildKit and the Docker daemon.
  • Secure Context Transfer: Shows how build context and secrets are securely transferred during the build.
  • Registry Interaction: Outlines the final stages of obtaining a registry token, pushing the built image to the registry, and the success response.

When to use
  • Optimized Docker Builds: When looking to optimize Docker builds with concurrent and cache-efficient builds using BuildKit.
  • Secure Build Environments: When needing to securely handle build contexts and secrets, ensuring sensitive information is managed properly.
  • CI/CD Pipelines: When integrating advanced Docker build features into Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment pipelines.

How to use
  1. Start editing: Duplicate the example file and double-click on the diagram to make it specific to your Docker build requirements.
  2. Customize diagram: Add or modify nodes, groups, and relationships to match your build process, including custom build arguments and contexts.
  3. Customize layout: Drag elements on the diagram directly on the canvas to create an easily understandable build flow for your team.
  4. Collect feedback: Share the diagram with your team members and stakeholders, using their input to refine and validate the build sequence.
