Short Description
The launcher is a container that launches the Che server within another container.
Full Description

The launcher verifies that the appropriate Docker client is configured, configures Che through environment variables (following good 12-factor app practices), and handles configuration nuances between different forms of Docker such as boot2docker, xhyve, and Docker on linux before launching Eclipse Che in a second container. This allows us to offer a Docker run syntax that is identical for every operating system.

Start Che:

docker run -t -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock codenvy/che-launcher start

Stop Che:

docker run -t -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock codenvy/che-launcher stop

Upgrade Che:

docker run -t -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock codenvy/che-launcher update

You can configure Che by setting environment variables:

docker run -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock \
-e <var>=<value> \
codenvy/che-launcher start
