Intro to docker
This is the code for my intro to docker class. These are the materials for an in-person class. I have recorded the class on youtube. You can also run through it yourself by reading the story. You can read more about it on a blog post I wrote.
We first need to setup our machines. Click the link for your OS. Please read below for specific instructions if required. After you have your machine setup read the intro
macOS Yosemite 10.10.3 or above
I don't have a mac so I couldn't test this, but this script might work so long as you have ruby installed:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)" brew tap caskroom/cask brew cask install docker-toolbox
What you will need
if you prefer to not use the scripts I have made you will need the following installed.
- docker-toolbox (win10/macOS only) -- or --
Notes about Windows 7, 8, 8.1, server 2012
Since you are on older verisons of windows you will run the docker kernel as a VM in a hypervisor. Your hypervisors are listed below.
- Win 7 -
- Win 8, 8.1, 2012 -
We need to create a machine by doing the following. Please note that you must replace MyHypervisor with the hypervisor listed above
# powershell docker-machine create mydock -d MyHypervisor
Now when we work with docker we need to first configure our shell to tell docker to use this machine (once per shell instance)
# powershell docker-machine env mydock | invoke-expression
You will then need to
docker-machine ls and take note of your docker machine's IP address. When we launch websites in docker instead of browsing on localhost you will browse to your docker machine's IP address.
