Automatically update your running Docker containers to the latest available image.
A python-based successor to watchtower
Ouroboros will monitor (all or specified) running docker containers and update them to the (latest or tagged) available image in the remote registry. The updated container uses the same tag and parameters that were used when the container was first created such as volume/bind mounts, docker network connections, environment variables, restart policies, entrypoints, commands, etc.
- Push your image to your registry and simply wait your defined interval for ouroboros to find the new image and redeploy your container autonomously.
- Notify you via many platforms courtesy of Apprise
- Serve metrics for trend monitoring (Currently: Prometheus/Influxdb)
- Limit your server ssh access
ssh -i key server.domainname "docker pull ... && docker run ..."is for scrubs
docker-compose pull && docker-compose up -dis for fancier scrubs
More detailed usage and configuration can be found on the wiki.
Ouroboros is deployed via docker image like so:
docker run -d --name ouroboros \
-v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
Example run with file output:
docker run -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
jolibrain/ouroboros --volume=/home/you/here/:/opt/ \
--dry-run --file /opt/version.json
This is image is compatible for amd64, arm32, and arm64 CPU architectures
Ouroboros can also be installed via
pip install ouroboros-cli
And can then be invoked using the
$ ouroboros --interval 300 --log-level debug
This can be useful if you would like to create a
systemdservice or similar daemon that doesn't run in a container
Per-command and scenario examples can be found in the wiki
