Drone CI with Podman

Installing Podman

Install the podman and podman-docker packages. E.g. on a Debian based System:

apt install podman podman-docker
pip3 install podman-compose
registries = ['quay.io', 'docker.io']

Configuring Drone CI

Drone CI uses a mapping of the Docker Socket. This mapping has to be changed so that Drone CI thinks that Podman is our Docker instance.

systemctl status podman.socket
- '/run/podman/podman.sock:/var/run/docker.sock'
sudo podman run -d \
-e DRONE_RPC_PROTO="https" \
--restart always \
--name runner \
-v /run/podman/podman.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
