Now that links are deprecated in docker-compose.yml (and were able to use the new networking feature to communicate between containers), we've lost a way to explicitly define dependencies between containers. How can we, now, tell our mysql container to come up first, before our API-server container starts up (which connects to mysql via the dns entry myapp_mysql_1 in docker-compose.yml?

Let’s assume that we have an nginx container depends on php container you can use volume_from as of now 


  image: nginx


    - "42080:80"


    - ./config/docker/nginx/default.conf:/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf:ro


    - php



  build: config/docker/php


    - "42022:22"


    - .:/var/www/html

  env_file: config/docker/php/.env.development

By this approach the volumes of php are exposed to nginx which is not a desired one but until depends_on feature is introduced.

There is a proposal to introduce "depends_on" in the new networking feature introduced by Docker.

The feature depends_on could be used to order the container start-up.
