A Vagrant provisioned VM to run Docker containers in.

## Prerequisites

  • Vagrant
  • VirtualBox
  • Ansible

## Usage

$ git clone git@github.com:SeerUK/OSXContainerHost.git
$ vagrant up
$ export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://

(Or alternatively, add: export DOCKER_HOST=tcp:// to whatever shell rc is relevent to your system)

You can also adjust the RAM and CPU count by modifying the following environment variables:

$ export OCH_CPUS=8
$ export OCH_MEMORY=8192

The defaults are 4 CPU cores, and 4096MB of memory.

## Things to be wary of

  • NFS is configured to map all activity in /Users/ to the uid and gid you run Vagrant as. This will also affect volumes in containers if they are mounted from the /Users/ folder (which I imagine most will be...). Realistically, for most use-cases this shouldn't be a problem, but it is something to be aware of. Please suggest a better solution if there is one.
  • Docker containers are created inside the VM, the images are downloaded inside the VM. Everything happens in there; therefore, if you remove and recreate the VM you will lose all of your existing containers.
