decking

A Docker helper to create, manage and run clusters of containers

decking—simplified management for clusters of Docker containers

Decking aims to simplify the creation, organsation and running of clusters of Docker containers in a way which is familiar to developers; by reading information from a decking.json package file on a project by project basis.

[sudo] npm install -g decking

While the project is under development the best place to find the most up-to-date documentation is decking.io.

  • Add --as CLI option to suport arbitrary group aliases
  • Add ready container parameter to signal when service has started
  • Add --tag CLI option when building images
  • No more copying Dockerfiles around when building images
  • Fix bad image builds silently exiting leaving 'ghost' containers
  • Add context image parameter to allow arbitrary build context directories
  • Add --context CLI option to allow arbitrary runtime build context directories
  • decking create no longer starts then stops containers (much faster)
  • Add support for cpu shares container option
  • Add support for memory limit container option
  • Much better output for non TTY environments (e.g. CI)
  • Much better error handling
  • Fix crashing when containers go away while running decking attach
