A curated list of Docker resources and projects

Inspired by @sindresorhusawesome and improved by these amazing contributors.

It’s now a github project because it’s considerably easier for other people to edit, fix and expand on Docker using Github. Just click If this list is not complete, you can contribute to make it so.

Please, help organize these resources so that they are easy to find and understand for new comers. See how to Contribute

If you see a package or project here that is no longer maintained or is not a good fit, please submit a pull request to improve this file. Thank you!

What is Docker ?

Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app, unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs, and any cloud.

Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery

  • Drone - Continuous integration server built on Docker and configured using YAML files.
  • Docker plugin for Jenkins - The aim of the docker plugin is to be able to use a docker host to dynamically provision a slave, run a single build, then tear-down that slave.
  • Captain - Convert your Git workflow to Docker containers ready for Continuous Delivery by @harbur
  • IBM DevOps Services - Continuous delivery using a pipeline deployment onto IBM Containers on Bluemix.


  • Last.Backend - Last.Backend platform is designed for automatization of all routine work with the server and deployment of applications in one click using the visual interface.
  • Conduit - Experimental deployment system for Docker by @ehazlett

Hosting for repositories (registries)

Securely store your Docker images. * Docker Hub (provided by Docker Inc.) * (part of CoreOS) - Secure hosting for private Docker repositories * Reesd - Private Docker repositories and redundant storage service by @noteed

Hosting for containers

  • Orchard (part of Docker Inc) - Get a Docker host in the cloud, instantly.
  • StackDock - Docker hosting on blazing fast dedicated infrastructure
  • Tutum - Simple hosting for your Docker containers.
  • Giant Swarm - Simple microservice infrastructure. Deploy your containers in seconds.
  • Triton - Elastic container-native infrastructure by Joyent.
  • Amazon ECS - A management service on EC2 that supports Docker containers.
  • Google Container Engine - Docker containers on Google Cloud Computing powered by Kubernetes.
  • IBM Bluemix - Run Docker containers in a hosted cloud environment on IBM Bluemix.

Storing Images


  • Axibase Time-Series Database (Long-term retention of container statistics and built-in dashboards for Docker. Collected with native Google cAdvisor storage driver.)
  • cAdvisor (Analyzes resource usage and performance characteristics of running containers. created by @Google
  • Dockerana (packaged version of Graphite and Grafana, specifically targeted at metrics from Docker.)
  • Docker-mon (Console-based Docker monitoring) by @icecrime
  • InfluxDB, cAdvisor, Grafana (InfluxDB Time series DB in combination with Grafana and cAdvisor) by @vegasbrianc
  • Prometheus (Open-source service monitoring system and time series database)
  • Seagull (Friendly Web UI to monitor docker daemon.) by @tobegit3hub
  • Sysdig: An open source troubleshooting tool that provides a rich set of real-time, system-level information. It has container-specific features and is very useful in Docker environments.
  • Zabbix Docker module: Zabbix module that provides discovery of running containers, CPU/memory/blk IO/net container metrics. Systemd Docker and LXC execution driver is also supported. It’s a dynamically linked shared object library, so its performance is (~10x) better, than any script solution.


  • Weave (The Docker network) – Weave creates a virtual network that connects Docker containers deployed across multiple hosts.


  • LogJam (Logjam is a log forwarder designed to listen on a local port, receive log entries over UDP, and forward these messages on to a log collecton server (such as logstash).) by @gocardless
  • Docker-Fluentd: (Docker container to Log Other Containers’ Logs. One can aggregate the logs of Docker containers running on the same host using Fluentd.) by @kiyoto
  • Logspout (Log routing for Docker container logs) by @gliderlabs

Deployment and Infrastructure

  • Centurion: Centurion is a mass deployment tool for Docker fleets. It takes containers from a Docker registry and runs them on a fleet of hosts with the correct environment variables, host volume mappings, and port mappings. By @newrelic
  • Clocker: Clocker creates and manages a Docker cloud infrastructure. Clocker supports single-click deployments and runtime management of multi-node applications that run as containers distributed across multiple hosts. It leverages Weave for networking and [Brooklyn][boorklyn] for application blueprints. By @brooklyncentral
  • Cloud 66 - Full-stack hosted container management as a service
  • Docket: Custom docker registry that allows for lightning fast deploys through bittorrent by @netvarun
  • Longshoreman: Longshoreman automates application deployment using Docker. Just create a Docker repository (or use a service), configure the cluster using AWS or Digital Ocean (or whatever you like) and deploy applications using a Heroku-like CLI tool. By longshoreman
