Bring Drag & Drop to Dash with Dashboard Engine. 💫 Learn how at our next webinar!

Deployment with docker

Hello everyone,
I have a simple one pager dashboard which has been done with Dash plotly.
everything is working fine on localhost.
it seems there are no intuitive resources for deploying dash app via Docker.
the only useful link that I have seen in the forum is [this ] (Deployment on Docker) link which is outdated and uses dash 1.

any helps is much appreciated.
thanks

Hi,

Which error are you having?

I’m no expert in this but this is how i have mine setup in docker.

Dockerfile

FROM ubuntu:latest 

WORKDIR /app
COPY . /app

ENV PYTHONDONTWRITEBYTECODE 1
ENV PYTHON UNBUFFERED 1

RUN apt-get update \
    && apt-get upgrade -y python3-pip \
    && apt-get install -y python3.8 wget curl \
    && pip3 install -r requirements.txt \
    && apt autoremove -y

EXPOSE 8050

ENTRYPOINT [ "gunicorn", "--config", "gunicorn_config.py", "index:server" ]

gunicorn_config.py

bind = "0.0.0.0:8050"
workers = 3
timeout = 120

app.py

from dash import dash
import dash_bootstrap_components as dbc

app = dash.Dash(__name__, 
    external_stylesheets=[dbc.themes.BOOTSTRAP], 
    suppress_callback_exceptions=True)

My index.py file has a server = app.server reference in it.

Hope this helps!

But with different methods I got different errors.
