I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong, but every time I try to deploy something with Fly the builder hangs at some point. What might have worked once stops working suddenly, and I just have to retry and retry (and wait and wait…). At this point I’ve learned the trick of destroying the current builder and making a new one, but even that seems to have stopped working.
Is this something others are experiencing? What am I doing wrong?
Just to be sure, is it always errors while the image is being built / pushed?
Oh wow, I just realised what is happening during ‘creating build context’ and wondering why it was uploading so much. Then I added
.git to the .dockerignore and everything suddenly snapped into life.
Jeez. Sorry, lack of docker knowledge did me in.
Hey, no problem! Don’t hesitate to reach out
It sounds like we could prevent this by at least telling the user their context is enormous.
