brewpi-docker: docker images to run a BrewPi server

This docker container runs the web interface and python scripts for BrewPi.

We have an image based on Ubuntu 16.04 and an image based on raspbian.

To deploy a brewpi container, take these steps:

For a raspberry pi (running hypriot)

Get the latest raspbian based image image

docker pull brewpi/brewpi-raspbian

Deploy a new container. Modify the command below to to your liking, especially the port and the data location on the host (default is ~/brewpi-data).

docker run -d --name brewpi -p 80:80 -v ~/brewpi-data:/data -v /etc/timezone:/etc/timezone -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime --restart always brewpi/brewpi-raspbian

For x64/x86 based systems

Get the latest ubuntu based image image

docker pull brewpi/brewpi-ubuntu

Deploy a new container. Modify the command below to to your liking, especially the port and the data location on the host (default is ~/brewpi-data).

docker run -d --name brewpi -p 80:80 -v ~/brewpi-data:/data -v /etc/timezone:/etc/timezone -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime --restart always brewpi/brewpi-ubuntu

Let's break that down to explain each part.

--name brewpi Name the new container brewpi, modify this you are running multiple brewpi containers.
-p 80:80 Map port 80 of the container to port 80 of the host.
If port 80 is in use, use a differnt port, for example 8000:80.
-v ~/brewpi-data:/data Store data and settings in ~/brewpi-data on the host.
-v /etc/timezone:/etc/timezone
-v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime
Use timezone from the host.
--restart always Start on boot and always restart the container when it stops.
brewpi/brewpi-raspbian The image that is used. Usebrewpi/brewpi-raspbian for the raspberry pi, brewpi/brewpi-ubuntu for x64/x86 systems.

Connecting the BrewPi Spark via USB

If you want to connect to the BrewPi Spark over USB, you need to pass an extra argument to the container to forward the usb device.

Parameter Explanation
--device=/dev/ttyACM0:/dev/ttyACM0 Make the serial port device /dev/ttyACM0 available in the container
