Building your image

Now that a fully assembled image definition file has been constructed it is time to try building it. As mentioned previously we will use podman to build this image; for other build engines see here

$ cekit build podman

This will output various logs (extra detail is possible via the verbose -v option).

cekit -v build podman

It is possible to use podman to list the new image e.g.

$ podman images
