Super Mario on SAP Cloud Platform

Update 2018-09-20: Please read disclaimer at the bottom regarding copyrights.


So the little guy in blue overalls, red cap, mustache and a with a constant need for ‘shrooms decided to join the SAP Cloud Platform party! Originally my work here was to prove the combined strength of Github, Docker and SAP Cloud Platform , but as it turns out, it’s also quite entertaining.

Somehow, not everyone are convinced about the prior mentioned tools. Therefore, maybe a game is what it would take to get these guys on the believer side?

One single command get’s it running on Cloud Foundry. One.

The fine print would then contain the requirements that you have an SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry account (trial or productive), that you have downloaded the command line interface and have logged in to your org and space. If this was new to you – go here.

So if you have this in place – one single command in your command prompt will get the build from docker, put the container in you Cloud Foundry space and start the whole thing.

What are the magical words, you ask?

cf push mario --docker-image pengbai/docker-supermario/ -m 512M --random-route


My point with this post is not to get you into playing games. It’s that using Docker with SAP Cloud Platform is really a beautiful thing!

      It looks awesomely sweet!!! Where should I have to write this command down?

      Please guide me on the location of the file 🙂

      cf push mario --docker-image shuuse/mario_sap_scp_cf -m 512M --random-route

      Hi Simen,

      This is a nice one!!The potential to use the power of docker along with CF opens up the whole new world.

      Just wondering if I can run a docker Jenkins image in my trial CF.

      Like below may be:

      cf push myjenkins --docker-image jenkins/jenkins -m 2048M --random-rout

      Not sure... any idea??!!

      Hi Shibaji,

      Setting up Jenkins will take some tweaking of parameters to get it running - not sure if SAP CP CF gives you access to what you need here.

      I really don't think the trial accounts is logical place to run Jenkins, as it is a personal space that should only be used for sandboxing and personal training and no real development. Chances are you will spend a lot of time to set it up and have a really bad ROI on you time spent.
