@restunurafipah One would use Docker to create Docker images. The blueprint or template for a Docker image is called the Dockerfile. Next, the running or executing Docker image is called a container. Here’s a great resource for building a Docker image and running the associated container here. I wish you all the best with your project. Happy Hacking!!!


By “create” do you mean deploy existing images to Kubernetes, building images to be deployed?

If you have already built some images, you can deploy using kubectl. You only need doctl to setup permissions, create a kubernetes cluster, etc.

For creating docker images (of your PHP/Python app), you should do that using docker (or possibly podman).
