A short introduction to the use case:
I am using a
docker container to run my
go tests using
go test ./.... This can be achieved easily using
docker exec <container> /bin/sh -c "go test ./...". Unfortunately
go test ./... runs across all subdirectories and I'd like to exclude one (the vendor directory).
The advised solution for this is using the following command:
go test $(go list ./... | grep -v '<excluded>', somehow this leaves me with the following result:
docker run golang:1.6.2-alpine /bin/sh -c "go test " (I have tested this on both run and exec, but they probably use the same core).
When I ssh into the container using
docker exec -it <container_id> /bin/sh and run the exact same command, it works like a charm.
It seems that executing shell commands trough the docker exec/run does not support any commands nested with
