Containerized Docker and Git for netPI onboard container developments
Full Description

Docker Development Environment

Made for netPI, the Open Edge Connectivity Ecosystem

Debian with SSH, Docker and Git as container development environment

The image provided hereunder deploys a container with installed Docker and Git to be used as container development environment.

Base of this image builds a tagged version of debian:jessie with enabled SSH, a fully featured Docker environment and Git version control system.

Container prerequisites

Port mapping

For remote login to the container across SSH the container's SSH port 22 needs to be mapped to any free netPI host port.

Privileged mode

Only the privileged mode option lifts the enforced container limitations to allow usage of Docker in a container.

Getting started

STEP 1. Open netPI's landing page under https://<netpi's ip address>.

STEP 2. Click the Docker tile to open the Docker management user interface.

STEP 3. Enter the following parameters under Containers > Add Container

  • Image: hilschernetpi/netpi-container-build-environment

  • Port mapping: Host "22" (any unused one) -> Container "22"

  • Restart policy" : always

  • Runtime > Privileged mode : On

STEP 4. Press the button Actions > Start container

Pulling the image from Docker Hub may take up to 5 minutes.


The container starts the SSH service and the Docker daemon automatically.

Login to it with an SSH client such as putty using netPI's IP address along with the mapped SSH port. Use the credentials root as user and root as password when asked and you are logged in as root.

Use Docker CLI commands as usual.

GitHub sources

The image is built from the GitHub project netPI-container-build-environment. It complies with the Dockerfile method to build a Docker image automated.

To build the container for an ARM CPU on Docker Hub(x86 based) the Dockerfile uses the method described here
