It's also possible to provide command line options for dockly to customize the docker connection

-h or --help null Display help
-v or --version null Display version information

Docker Support

Run from docker

You can run dockly using docker:

docker run -it -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock lirantal/dockly


If you wish to build dockly as a docker image yourself, you can run the following:

$ docker build -t dockly .

$ docker run -it --name dockly -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock dockly


  1. Unsupported Node.js Version

If you're getting the following error in your CLI:

root@neo:~# dockly
constructor (utils = new Map()) {

SyntaxError: Unexpected token =
at exports.runInThisContext (vm.js:53:16)
at Module._compile (module.js:374:25)

Or this kind of error:

Trace: TypeError: Object.values is not a function                                                                                                            
    at screen.toggleMode (/home/vokiel/.nvm/versions/node/v6.11.1/lib/node_modules/dockly/src/screen.js:149:35)
    at Screen.screen.key (/home/vokiel/.nvm/versions/node/v6.11.1/lib/node_modules/dockly/src/screen.js:190:12)
    at Screen.EventEmitter._emit

This is most likely because you're using an unsupported Node.js version. Dockly requires Node.js v7.6 and above
