Logspout plugin for Dokku

Project: https://github.com/dokku/dokku & https://github.com/gliderlabs/logspout


  • Dokku version 0.3.10 or higher


# dokku 0.3.x
$ cd /var/lib/dokku/plugins (or /var/lib/dokku/plugins/ava)
$ git clone https://github.com/michaelshobbs/dokku-logspout.git dokku-logspout
dokku plugins-install
# dokku 0.4.x
$ dokku plugin:install https://github.com/michaelshobbs/dokku-logspout.git


Pre install, you can set the $DOKKU_LOGSPOUT_IMAGE_VERSION environment variable to pull a specific version of the logspout docker image.

$ DOKKU_LOGSPOUT_IMAGE_VERSION=v3.1 dokku plugin:install https://github.com/michaelshobbs/dokku-logspout.git

Post install, configuration settings are stored in /home/dokku/.logspout/OPTS. If you would like to use a specific version of the logspout container, you can edit OPTS and modify the DOKKU_LOGSPOUT_IMAGE_VERSION to point to a specific image version. Then you will need to update and relaunch the logspout container.

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                      COMMAND                  CREATED              STATUS              PORTS                               NAMES

If you need to change the environment variables used by logspout, you can add these to the /home/dokku/.logspout/ENV file, for example:


When changing the variable file, you have to restart the logspout container: dokku logspout:stop && dokku logspout:start


$ dokku help
    logspout:destroy                                destroy logspout container
    logspout:info                                   show status of running container
    logspout:port <port>                            set local logspout port
    logspout:server <server-url>                    set remote syslog server
    logspout:start                                  start logspout container
    logspout:stop                                   stop logspout container
    logspout:stream                                 print log stream to stdout
    logspout:update                                 updates the logspout docker image
