Will, this is hugely beneficial. Thanks so much for writing/sharing this!

Awesome work on this! We'll (RelateIQ) update the images soon to the public registry. Do you care if we add this to the readme to our repo with credit to you?

@JohnFiedler No, please do.

Awesome thanks!

Thank you for putting this together!

shykes commented Nov 22, 2013

This is great. Thanks guys for this, I will print one out for myself :)

Would you be open to contributing some of this to the official Docker docs?

@wsargent I was about to ask why you removed the sections covering running a registry, Shipyard, tips, etc.... until I noticed they're all in the blog post. :~)

Both are excellent resources, btw. Thanks for sharing all this! It covered a few bits I still hadn't found time to poke at. Now I'm looking forward to your next post: "using Docker with the Typesafe Stack." :D

very nicely written. Thank you. It's that good that it should be part of the official doc

thanks, that is one hell of cheat sheet! Rock on!

To retrieve the ip address

docker inspect -f '{{ .NetworkSettings.IPAddress }}' <container_name>

wsargent commented Jun 27, 2014

@saulshanabrook I do wish that they would stop changing their URLs around without even a redirect...


wsargent commented Jun 27, 2014

@debrice udpated, thx.

geshan commented Jun 28, 2014

how do I assign a static IP to a docker container??

aronr commented Jul 19, 2014

@geshan One possible way to assign a static IP address to a Docker container, might be via @jpetazzo's pipework shell script.

See the example given by Lukas Pustina, under the subhead "Pipework – More Networks for your Containers" in Docker Networking Made Simple or 3 Ways to Connect LXC Containers.
