Basic Dockerfile following installation steps fails with "Could not locate Gemfile"
I tried to install your plugin using an original redmine docker image, and your instructions, converted to docker commands. It does not work for me. As I know nothing about ruby, gemfiles, ..., I cannot debug the issue myself. I asked on Stackoverflow first, but got no reply so far. Here is the link to my SO question:
And a copy of the question:
Trying to install a plugin in redmine, using docker. I'm new to redmine, and just know the docker basics. I have no knowledge of Ruby, so idk how those Gemfiles installations work.
I'm trying to install "Issue recurring". The installation instructions for the plugin look straightforward:
su - redmine
git -C /var/lib/redmine/plugins/ clone https://github.com/cryptogopher/issue_recurring.git
RAILS_ENV=production rake redmine:plugins:migrate
So I tried to translate that into a Dockerfile:
RUN mkdir -p /var/lib/redmine/plugins/
RUN chown -R redmine:redmine /var/lib/redmine
#su - redmine
RUN git -C /var/lib/redmine/plugins/ clone https://github.com/cryptogopher/issue_recurring.git
RUN bundle install
#RAILS_ENV=production rake redmine:plugins:migrate
ENV RAILS_ENV production
RUN rake redmine:plugins:migrate
But what I get is:
Step 7/9 : RUN bundle install
---> Running in 1139cd4ccb43
Could not locate Gemfile
The command '/bin/sh -c bundle install' returned a non-zero code: 10
Am I doing something wrong here, or is there a bug in the plugin? Being inexperienced in Ruby, I cannot tell. I tried running "bundle install" in "/var/lib/redmine/plugins/" and "/var/lib/redmine/plugins/issue-recurring/" too, but same result.

EDIT: I've researched the subject somewhat. From my newly found understanding, "bundle install" expects a "Gemfile" somewhere. There doesn't seem to be a Gemfile anywhere in you git repo, so how is it even meant to work, with or without Docker? Also, that would explain the error message, which seems to be literally the problem.

Redmine plugins are not required to have their own Gemfile (though they can have one if needed). I suspect that there is no Gemfile inside Redmine installation directory - /var/lib/redmine. This one is required. Try to
ls /var/lib/redmine/Gemfile* to check if it is available.
In case there are still problems, please let me know what is the source of docker image you're using.
