I get asked all the time, “Are you planning on building a docker image?” This question is one that I get asked a lot, and I think it is because there is no one single correct answer to this question.
Docker is an open source way for developers to develop and run their own applications. Docker allows you to store applications on a network of computers, which makes it easy to share your applications, but it also allows you to run them on multiple computers at the same time. This is great for large applications that need to be fast, but it can also be used for small applications that need to be less complex.
Docker is currently growing at a healthy rate and so far is the most popular container image on the internet (and one of the most popular for Linux). It’s also a very flexible way to develop and run your applications once you’re ready to go.
This article is a primer on how Docker is used in the development of your containers. This is not a complete guide for how Docker has all the benefits of a container, but it is a great starting point.
Docker is a way to run applications as a collection of small, lightweight containers, that you can easily spin up and tear down. When you do this you can start new apps, or use existing ones to save space and time. This article is the most basic introduction to Docker that I have ever written, and it includes a complete, well-organized guide to setting up a development environment on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.
The reason Docker isn’t included in the development environment is because we don’t want to run any apps on top of the container. We just want to run our own app, and get it running.
You can have a look at the rest of the Docker documentation here.
This article is more than a simple tutorial on how to set up Docker on Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows. You can also get a look at the tutorial from the Docker Guide: How to Use Docker on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
You can use the Docker hub to run a container from your laptop or desktop. It does this by having a Docker daemon running in a container. This daemon will start a container, and then run a program inside of that container. A good example is the image of our own container called “docker-compose” which is our development environment on Windows. You can get a look at the rest of the Docker documentation here.
The Docker guide has a lot of good stuff about setting up a local development environment, but I wanted to focus on docker-compose because it is a very popular one. I really like that it’s a lightweight environment that is simple to setup and use. It’s very easy to configure, and there are many ways to customize it to your own needs. And, well, I think it’s one of the best containers out there.
