How to Use this Image


The following will set up and run the latest Errbot connected to Slack.

[Copy defaults/ to defaults/ and adjust]
docker run -d --name=errbot_server \
  -v /srv \
  -v defaults/

Custom Config

Errbot is highly configurable. You can adjust the configuration by copying the defaults/ to defaults/, modifying, and then mounting to /srv/ when running the conta
iner. If you'd like to build one with a custom configuration to begin with simply modify the defaults/ first and it will be copied in upon build.

Data Container

To persist your data, plugins, and other information you're going to want to create a data container (or otherwise mount storage). The following will quickly create one:

docker create -v /srv --name errbot_data frozenfoxx/rpi-errbot /bin/true

You can then mount this container using --volumes-from:

docker run -d --name=errbot_server \
  -v errbot_data:/srv \
