Bocker

Docker implemented in around 100 lines of bash.

Prerequisites

The following packages are needed to run bocker.

  • btrfs-progs
  • curl
  • iproute2
  • iptables
  • libcgroup-tools
  • util-linux >= 2.25.2
  • coreutils >= 7.5

Because most distributions do not ship a new enough version of util-linux you will probably need to grab the sources from here and compile it yourself.

Additionally your system will need to be configured with the following:

  • A btrfs filesystem mounted under /var/bocker
  • A network bridge called bridge0 and an IP of 10.0.0.1/24
  • IP forwarding enabled in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
  • A firewall routing traffic from bridge0 to a physical interface.

For ease of use a Vagrantfile is included which will build the needed environment.

Even if you meet the above prerequisites you probably still want to run bocker in a virtual machine. Bocker runs as root and among other things needs to make changes to your network interfaces, routing table, and firewall rules. I can make no guarantees that it won't trash your system.

Example Usage

$ bocker pull centos 7
