Awesome Docker

A curated list of Docker resources and projects

Inspired by @sindresorhus' awesome and improved by these amazing contributors.

It's now a github project because it's considerably easier for other people to edit, fix and expand on Docker using Github. Just click If this list is not complete, you can contribute to make it so.

Please, help organize these resources so that they are easy to find and understand for new comers. See how to Contribute

If you see a package or project here that is no longer maintained or is not a good fit, please submit a pull request to improve this file. Thank you!

What is Docker ?

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

Dev Tools

Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery

  • Drone - Continuous integration server built on Docker and configured using YAML files.
  • Docker plugin for Jenkins - The aim of the docker plugin is to be able to use a docker host to dynamically provision a slave, run a single build, then tear-down that slave.
  • Captain - Convert your Git workflow to Docker containers ready for Continuous Delivery.
  • IBM DevOps Services - Continuous delivery using a pipeline deployment onto IBM Containers on Bluemix.


  • Last.Backend - Last.Backend platform is designed for automatization of all routine work with the server and deployment of applications in one click using the visual interface.

Hosting for repositories (registries)

Securely store your Docker images.

  • Docker Hub (provided by Docker Inc.)
  • (part of CoreOS) - Secure hosting for private Docker repositories
  • Reesd - Private Docker repositories and redundant storage service by @noteed

Hosting for containers

  • Orchard (part of Docker Inc) - Get a Docker host in the cloud, instantly.
  • StackDock - Docker hosting on blazing fast dedicated infrastructure
  • Tutum - Simple hosting for your Docker containers.
  • Giant Swarm - Simple microservice infrastructure. Deploy your containers in seconds.
  • Triton - Elastic container-native infrastructure by Joyent.
  • Amazon ECS - A management service on EC2 that supports Docker containers.
  • Google Container Engine - Docker containers on Google Cloud Computing powered by Kubernetes.
  • IBM Bluemix - Run Docker containers in a hosted cloud environment on IBM Bluemix.

Useful Images


Storing Images


  • Seagull (Friendly Web UI to monitor docker daemon.)
  • Dockerana (packaged version of Graphite and Grafana, specifically targeted at metrics from Docker.)
  • Docker-mon (Console-based Docker monitoring) by @icecrime
  • Sysdig: An open source troubleshooting tool that provides a rich set of real-time, system-level information. It has container-specific features and is very useful in Docker environments.
  • Zabbix Docker module: Zabbix module that provides discovery of running containers, CPU/memory/blk IO/net container metrics. Systemd Docker and LXC execution driver is also supported. It's a dynamically linked shared object library, so its performance is (~10x) better, than any script solution.


  • Weave (The Docker network) -- Weave creates a virtual network that connects Docker containers deployed across multiple hosts.


  • LogJam (Logjam is a log forwarder designed to listen on a local port, receive log entries over UDP, and forward these messages on to a log collecton server (such as logstash).)
  • Docker-Fluentd: Docker container to Log Other Containers' Logs. One can aggregate the logs of Docker containers running on the same host using Fluentd.
  • Logspout (Log routing for Docker container logs) by @gliderlabs

Deployment and Infrastructure

  • Centurion: Centurion is a mass deployment tool for Docker fleets. It takes containers from a Docker registry and runs them on a fleet of hosts with the correct environment variables, host volume mappings, and port mappings.
  • Clocker: Clocker creates and manages a Docker cloud infrastructure. Clocker supports single-click deployments and runtime management of multi-node applications that run as containers distributed across multiple hosts. It leverages Weave for networking and [Brooklyn][boorklyn] for application blueprints.
  • Cloud 66 - Full-stack hosted container management as a service
  • Docket: Custom docker registry that allows for lightning fast deploys through bittorrent by @netvarun
  • Longshoreman: Longshoreman automates application deployment using Docker. Just create a Docker repository (or use a service), configure the cluster using AWS or Digital Ocean (or whatever you like) and deploy applications using a Heroku-like CLI tool.


Remote Container Manager / Orchestration

  • Kubernetes (Open source orchestration system for Docker containers by Google) --

  • Shipyard (Composable Docker Management) --

  • Panamax (Docker Management for Humans) --

  • Gaudi (Gaudi allows to share multi-component applications, based on Docker, Go, and YAM) --

  • CoreOS (Linux for Massive Server Deployments) --

  • Rancher (Portable AWS-style infrastructure service for Docker) --

  • dokku-alt (Dokku fork with Dockerfile support, database plugins, ACL and more)

  • cAdvisor (Analyzes resource usage and performance characteristics of running containers)

  • Docker container on Mesos (Docker plus Mesosphere provides an easy way to automate and scale deployment of containers in a production environment.)

  • Marathon (Marathon is a private PaaS built on Mesos. It automatically handles hardware or software failures and ensures that an app is "always on".)

  • Serf (Service orchestration and management tool.) by @hashicorp

  • Flocker (Flocker is a data volume manager and multi-host Docker cluster management tool) by @ClusterHQ

  • Decking: (Decking aims to simplify the creation, organsation and running of clusters of Docker containers in a way which is familiar to developers.)

  • Maestro (Maestro provides the ability to easily launch, orchestrate and manage mulitiple Docker containers as single unit.)

  • Citadel (Citadel is a toolkit for scheduling containers on a Docker cluster.)

  • CloudSlang (CloudSlang is a workflow engine to create Docker process automation)

  • autodock (Automating Docker; also provides A Docker based mini-PaaS

Service Discovery

  • docker-consul by @progrium
  • etcd: A highly-available key value store for shared configuration and service discovery
  • Docker Grand Ambassador This is a fully dynamic docker link ambassador. + Article
  • confd: Manage local application configuration files using templates and data from etcd or consul.
  • proxy: lightweight nginx based load balancer self using service discovery provided by registrator. by @factorish
