Docker is a service for creating and managing linux containers.
Containers are the application layer of an OS and whatever software you're trying to run.
For the most part, software can be containerized to run in a consistent environment.
This applies so long as the container linux environment is compatible with your host system's linux kernel.

Usage

Containers

docker container ls

Run

docker run <container>
  • -p hostport:containerport to do port forwarding
    • To restrict listing to localhost use -p 127.0.0.1:80:80
  • -it to be interactive with a pseudo-tty

Networking

The default mode for networking is bridge. You should leave this for most of your containers.

bridge

In bridge mode, the docker service acts as a NAT and gives each container a separate local IP along with the docker host.
On linux, you can type ip a to see the ip address of the docker0 network interface.
On my server, it is 172.17.0.1/16.
To access services running on the host (such as MySQL or Postgres), you will need to make these services liston on this network interface and allow it through your firewall.
Then make your docker containers connect using the ip address of your docker host.

host

In this mode, docker processes have full access to your network. This can cause port conflicts if you are not careful. Furthermore, your docker service will have full access to your localhost. I do not recommend using this mode for most things.

Windows

Git bash paths

Reference
When mounting paths using git bash, you need to prepend a / to $(pwd)
