Service registry bridge for Docker with pluggable backends
Full Description


Service registry bridge for Docker.

<br /><br />

Registrator automatically registers and deregisters services for any Docker
container by inspecting containers as they come online. Registrator
supports pluggable service registries, which currently includes
Consul, etcd and
SkyDNS 2.

Full documentation available at

Getting Registrator

Get the latest release, master, or any version of Registrator via Docker Hub:

$ docker pull gliderlabs/registrator:latest

Latest tag always points to the latest release. There is also a :master tag
and version tags to pin to specific releases.

Using Registrator

The quickest way to see Registrator in action is our
tutorial. Otherwise, jump to the Run
in the User
Guide. Typically, running Registrator looks like this:

$ docker run -d \
    --name=registrator \
    --net=host \
    --volume=/var/run/docker.sock:/tmp/docker.sock \
    gliderlabs/registrator:latest \

  /bin/registrator [options] <registry URI>
