Question

How to deploy Docker container using .do/deploy.template.yaml

I believe your documentation on the different between app.yaml and .do/deploy.template.yaml is lacking.

I believe your page explaining how to add the deploy button, is totally confusing it show examples for the deploy.template.yaml file, but links to the documentation for the app.yaml https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/app-platform/how-to/add-deploy-do-button/

Why are your customers having to explain this to you?

Okay, can you explain if it is possible to launch a docker container, using this file somehow: .do/deploy.template.yaml

Thank you

I realize this is not very clear. .do/app.yaml is an unofficial path commonly used to store app specs in git repos, however, it is not used by App Platform at all.

deploy.template.yaml follows the exact same syntax as a regular App Spec, except it is nested under a spec: key. As an example, here is a deploy button template for a Dockerfile service:

spec:
  name: sample-dockerfile
  services:
  - name: dockerfile-service
    dockerfile_path: Dockerfile
    git:
      branch: main
      repo_clone_url: https://github.com/digitalocean/sample-dockerfile.git
