This simple tool will take almost any virtual disk and quickly generate
a container for it.  It can generate a "full" image, or if you specify
an existing base docker image, it will attempt to create a new image
layer containing only the diffrences between the virtual disk and the
docker image.

This simple script will take a virtual disk and convert it into a docker container. It has two modes of operating. It can create a full image based purely on the content of the virtual disk, or it can create a layer on top of an existing image, trying to avoid duplication. It uses rsync and file checksumming to detect files that are identical between the base image and the virtual disk content.

If you've got a single, simple app, you can then run it directly with docker from the commandline. If the app contains multiple services, then you can use Compose and/or multiple Dockerfiles to define them for quick instantiation.


In order to use this tool, you'll have to install docker, as well as libguestfs-tools
