The team has been busy since our last release where we added a “Try on Desktop” button within the Docker Hub user interface. This time we are adding the Docker experience to the Kitematic UI. The Kitematic v0.6 release introduces the ability to pull and run your private Docker Hub images in Kitematic.
Continuing our Docker Online meetup series centered on the Docker 1.6 release, we are pleased to share the video recording from Tuesday’s webinar with Stephen Day, distribution tech lead at Docker. In this session, Stephen first gives a little history around the first version of the Docker Registry API V1 before introducing the design of Docker Registry HTTP API V2 and implementation of Registry 2.0. Stephen ends the talk with a preview of the future of Docker image distribution. Check out the video recording and the slides below for more details!
TL,DR I’m a developer on the Hub team at Docker, Inc. My realm of responsibility spans three different projects: Docker Hub, Registry Hub and www.docker.com. Each of these are Django applications with their own PostgreSQL, Redis, and RabbitMQ instances. I want to be able to “start projects” from one command and not only have everything running, but also have logs, Python shells, file system monitoring, a shell at the root of each project, and git fetch –all without having to type it all myself over and over and over again. This post will describe the development environment I built to…
We’re excited to highlight two new Official Images that we added to Docker Hub in April. These images are the latest additions to a growing library of quality content maintained by Docker and our partners. Check them out: Drupal Drupal is a free and open-source content-management framework written in PHP and distributed under the GNU General Public License. It is used as a back-end framework for at least 2.1% of all sites worldwide, ranging from personal blogs to corporate, political, and government sites including WhiteHouse.gov and data.gov.uk. It is also used for knowledge management and business collaboration.
We’re excited to announce a new feature on Docker Hub (for Mac users right now) – a button that pulls, configures and runs Docker containers for you on your desktop in a single click. We do this by using an external protocol handler that talks to Kitematic, a desktop GUI app for Docker. This is the first step of connecting Kitematic to the Docker Hub!
There has been incredible growth in the usage of Docker Hub: we have now served over 300 million pulls to developers around the world, and will soon be serving 100 million per month. The current generation of the Registry has done a good job so far, but we know we need a better foundation to support this growth and keep your image pulls running fast and reliably. We’re pleased to announce a huge update to how images are distributed, which will make pulling images dramatically faster and more reliable. It’s the foundation that will support image distribution in years to…
Back in December at DockerCon Europe, we announced chained Webhooks. This enabled you to configure your deployment processes to continue only if the previous Webhook completed successfully. Today we are excited to announce expanded Webhook capabilities. You can now set up Webhook subscriptions to repositories that you do not own but use. For example, when your favorite Official Repository is updated with a security patch you can automate your build and deploy processes to take advance of changes immediately.
We’re excited to announce three new Official Images that we added to Docker Hub in March. These images are part of Docker’s mission to add robust, enterprise-ready development technologies to the Docker ecosystem. Check them out: Alpine Alpine Linux is a Linux distribution built around musl libc and BusyBox. The image is only 5 MB in size and has access to a package repository that is much more complete than other BusyBox-based images. This makes Alpine Linux a great image base for utilities and even production applications.
