Docker Tools Documentation
A list of tools being developed at Microsoft for working with Docker Containers
The Visual Studio 2015 Tools for Docker Preview enables developers to build and debug their applications in a locally hosted Docker container and publish their application to an Azure Docker Host.
Scaffolding of Dockerfiles and scripts to build and run your Docker containers
To assist developers getting started, and those developers already using docker with the appropriate Dockerfile and associated scripts to build and run your docker containers. This yeoman generator will prompt you with a few questions, asking your development language and target container host. Two files will be added to the directory
Dockerfile- the Dockerfile associated with your target language
dockerTask.sh- a bash script that contains the common tasks associated with building and running your docker containers parameters supported for dockerTask.sh
build- builds the Docker image
run- runs the Docker image on the default port, removing any current running containers for the same port
buildrun- the default, which does what the name implies...

Install Docker generator:
npm -g install generator-docker
From the directory of your project, run the Docker generator:
###Installing yo docker on Windows### Coming soon
While you can install the same yo docker tools above for the mac, the scripts generated are bash scripts. We are working on generating .cmd scripts as a Windows Developer would expect.
###Contributing to yo docker### We are planning to make yo docker open sourced, accepting pull requests. stay tuned
##Getting Started Samples## For those looking for some simple Hello World samples for GOLang, NodeJS and soon ASP.NET, you can download these:
These samples do NOT yet have the Docker assets added. The idea is you would use
yo docker to enhance these.
###NodeJS Hello World Sample### To use the NodeJS sample
- In the root directory execute:
npm installto restore the node packages
- to get nodemon support, execute:
sudo npm install -g nodemon
- to start the app with nodemon, execute:
