Using docker-compose in Dockerfile

To create a docker image for a tileserver i want to include the generation of the tilemaps via into the build process.

For that i would need to “RUN docker-compose” during the image build process.

    CMD make start-tileserver

    Trying to build this dockerfile seems to succefully install docker-compose
    but starting docker-compose via the bash script results in the following error

    Couldn't connect to Docker daemon at http+docker://localunixsocket - is it running?
    If it's at a non-standard location, specify the URL with the DOCKER_HOST environment variable.

    You are getting this error because docker daemon is not running inside your container. So you need to have a connection with any host that running docker daemon and specified DOCKER_HOST env variable. I suggest you link your container with another docker-in-docker container( Take a look into one of the existing docker-in-docker solutions out there.

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
