Docker tools like Docker Engine, Docker Compose & Docker Machine are already installed for you. All you need is to get started.

We recommend you start with one of our Beginners Guides, and then move to intermediate and expert level tutorials that cover most of the features of Docker. For a comprehensive approach to understanding Docker, I have categorized it as shown below:

  • Wait for few seconds to bring up 5-Node Swarm Cluster

A Bonus... Docker Swarm Visualizer

Swarm Visualizer is a fancy tool which visualized the Swarm Cluster setup. It displays containers running on each node in the form of visuals. If you are conducting Docker workshop, it's a perfect way to show your audience how the containers are placed under each node. Go..try it out..

Clone the Repository

git clone https://github.com/dockersamples/docker-swarm-visualizer
cd docker-swarm-visualizer
docker-compose up -d

To run in a docker swarm:

$ docker service create \
  --name=viz \
  --publish=8080:8080/tcp \
  --constraint=node.role==manager \
  --mount=type=bind,src=/var/run/docker.sock,dst=/var/run/docker.sock \
