How to install php-redis extension using the official PHP Docker image approach?

I want to build my PHP-FPM image with

extension based on the official PHP Docker image, for example, using this Dockerfile: php:5.6-fpm.

The docs say that I can install extensions this way, installing dependencies for extensions manually:

FROM php:5.6-fpm
# Install modules (iconv, mcrypt and gd extensions)
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y \
libfreetype6-dev \
libjpeg62-turbo-dev \
libmcrypt-dev \
libpng12-dev \
&& docker-php-ext-install iconv mcrypt \
&& docker-php-ext-configure gd --with-freetype-dir=/usr/include/ --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/include/ \
&& docker-php-ext-install gd
CMD ["php-fpm"]

Without Docker I installed it with
apt-get install php5-redis
. But how can I install it using the approach above?

Answer Source

I've found two ways to install php-redis extension for official php-fpm Docker image. Here they are:

The first way is to compile redis from sources and install.

RUN curl -L -o /tmp/redis.tar.gz \
    && tar xfz /tmp/redis.tar.gz \
    && rm -r /tmp/redis.tar.gz \
    && mv phpredis-2.2.7 /usr/src/php/ext/redis \
    && docker-php-ext-install redis

docker-php-ext-install script is included in php-fpm image and can compile extensions and install them.

The second way you can do it is with PECL.

As TimWolla answered, you can do it with PECL, but in my case, PECL isn't installed by default.

RUN pecl install -o -f redis \
&&  rm -rf /tmp/pear \
&&  echo "" > /usr/local/etc/php/conf.d/redis.ini
