How to run the container
You need docker v1.3+ installed. To get the container up and running and drop to an interactive shell, run:
sudo docker run --rm -it -v "/home/dordoka/Code:/home/play/Code" -p 9000:9000 -p 9999:9999 -p 8888:8888 dordoka/play-framework
Remember to change
/home/dordoka/Code to the directory where your code is stored.
If you have
docker-compose installed, you can just launch:
sudo docker-compose up
NOTE: compose doesn't support interactive shells directly. See Issue 423
