Representing Dockerfiles in RDF

by Riccardo Tommasini, Ben De Meester, Pieter Heyvaert, Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens, and Emanuele Della Valle

Containers – lightweight, stand-alone software executables – are everywhere. Industries exploit container managers to orchestrate complex cloud infrastructures and researchers in academia use them to foster reproducibility of computational experiments. Among existing solutions, Docker is the de facto standard in the container industry. In this paper, we advocate the value of applying the Linked Data paradigm to the container ecosystem’s building scripts, as it will allow adding additional knowledge, ease decentralized references, and foster interoperability. In particular we defined a vocabulary Dockeronto that allows to semantically annotate Dockerfiles.
