This script syncs the current directory to /home/docker/share on a boot2docker vm.
set -u # prevent unbound variables
set -e # terminate on error
SSH_PORT=$(boot2docker config 2>&1 | awk '/SSHPort/ {print $3}')
# install rsync
boot2docker ssh tce-load -wi rsync
# ensure existance of .rsyncignore
touch .rsyncignore
function boot2docker_sync {
# sync current directory to ~/share on the vm
rsync \
-rlz --force --delete \
--exclude-from=.rsyncignore \
-e "ssh \
-o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null \
-o StrictHostKeyChecking=no \
-i $HOME/.ssh/id_boot2docker \
-p $SSH_PORT" \
./ docker@localhost:/home/docker/share
echo "sync: $(date)"
export -f boot2docker_sync
fswatch -o . | xargs -n1 -I{} boot2docker_sync
$ curl -o
$ sh

To mount your current directroy into a container you need to reference /home/docker/share:

$ docker run -v /home/docker/share:/share busybox ls /share

Use the .rsyncignore file to ignore files or directories you don't want to sync.
