Managing Docker containers with Shipyard

There’s plenty of things that amaze me about Docker, but one of the things I find interesting is the number of available images with all sorts of stuff preconfigured and ready to spin up, including Docker management related tools like Shipyard that also run within Docker containers themselves.

Installing couldn’t be simpler, just pull down a script and run it, and it pulls down a number of images and spins them up:

curl -sSL | bash -s

Within a few seconds Shipyard is up and running, and after logging on, you get the snappy looking dashboard:

Now, off to do a bit more studying to configure a spin up a Swarm cluster 🙂
