REDHAWK docker

A basic Docker image of a REDHAWK development environment.

The image can be pulled from the Docker Hub Registry

The default command for this image runs a bash shell as the 'redhawk' user. This is a privileged user and is not required to authenticate when running 'sudo' so that the container may be customized.

docker run -it axios/redhawk

The image comes with the omniNames and omniEvents servers installed and configured. Start them with:

    sudo service omniNames start
sudo service omniEvents start

#REDHAWK IDE support
The REDHAWK IDE has been left out of this docker image by default. To enable IDE support in your docker container perform the following steps:

  1. On your localhost, disable xhost access control:

    xhost +
  2. Run the image and bind mount the X11 socket to the container. Additionally, set the display environment variable:

     docker run -it --volume=/tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -e DISPLAY=unix$DISPLAY axios/redhawk
  3. Install the redhawk-ide yum package:

     sudo yum install redhawk-ide
  4. Verify that the REDHAWK IDE can be launched from the container and displays correctly on the host system:


NOTE: If you are on an SELinux enabled CentOS 7 host, you will need to first assign the appropriate context to the /tmp/.X11-unix directory as described here:

chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t /tmp/.X11-unix
