    Simplistic solution of why can't I reach my docker containers by name? problem. Continuously update hosts file (/etc/hosts) with docker container names and aliases and watch for changes.

    Installation 🔨

    $ npm install -g whales-names
    

    Usage 📘

    $ whales-names
    Synchronizing docker container hostnames in hosts file.
    

    Afterwards you are going to see a new section in the end of your /etc/hosts file:

    ...
    
    # whales-names begin
    172.21.88.220	dfbf5d96df3e node1 
    172.21.94.104	79468a158d1e node2
    172.21.89.244	0c9b251458f4 db
    # whales-names end
    
    

    You can end it with simple Ctrl+C. Errors, if any are going to be printed on the console.

    Elevated privileges ⚠️

    Due to file permissions of /etc/hosts file you need to use elevated privileges (run as Administrator, if you will) for running it.

    Rae: You like whales?

    Jesse: I like him.

    Rae: Well, he doesn't like anybody, so stay away from him. You see, Willy's a case. A very special case.

    Jesse: So? Who isn't?
