docker-events

Create an event emitter from dockerode's events response

Overview

Docker exposes an event API, allowing one to monitor the happenings of a Docker host. dockerode allows for consumption of this API, albeit in a very raw form. docker-events does a bit of work for you, turning the raw API of dockerode into something a little more high-level by parsing the response stream and pushing things out of an EventEmitter.

API

DockerEvents (constructor)

var emitter = new DockerEvents({
  docker: new Dockerode(options),
});

start

emitter.start();

stop

emitter.stop();

#connect

emitter.on("connect", function() {
  console.log("connected to docker api");
});

#disconnect

emitter.on("disconnect", function() {
  console.log("disconnected to docker api; reconnecting");
});

#_message

emitter.on("_message", function(message) {
  console.log("got a message from docker: %j", message);
});

#create

emitter.on("create", function(message) {
  console.log("container created: %j", message);
});

#start

emitter.on("start", function(message) {
  console.log("container started: %j", message);
});

#stop

emitter.on("stop", function(message) {
  console.log("container stopped: %j", message);
});

#die

emitter.on("die", function(message) {
  console.log("container died: %j", message);
});

#destroy

emitter.on("destroy", function(message) {
  console.log("container destroyed: %j", message);
});
