Full Description

Litecoind for Docker

FORKED FROM: https://github.com/kylemanna/docker-bitcoind

ALSO BASED ON (but without dependencies): https://hub.docker.com/r/zouchao2010/litecoind

Docker image that runs a litecoind node in a container for easy deployment.

Requirements

  • Physical machine, cloud instance, or VPS that supports Docker (i.e. Vultr, Digital Ocean, KVM or XEN based VMs) running Ubuntu 14.04 or later (not OpenVZ containers!)
  • At least 6 GB to store the block chain files
  • At least 1 GB RAM + 2 GB swap file

Really Fast Quick Start

One liner for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS machines with JSON-RPC enabled on localhost and adds upstart init script:

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kelostrada/docker-litecoind/master/bootstrap-host.sh | sh -s trusty

Quick Start

  1. Create a litecoind-data volume to persist the litecoind blockchain data, should exit immediately. The litecoind-data container will store the blockchain when the node container is recreated (software upgrade, reboot, etc):

     docker volume create --name=litecoind-data
     docker run -v litecoind-data:/litecoin --name=litecoind-node -d \
         -p 9333:9333 \
         -p 9332:9332 \
         kelu/litecoin
    
  2. Verify that the container is running and litecoind node is downloading the blockchain

     $ docker ps
     CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                         COMMAND             CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                              NAMES
     d0e1076b2dca        kelu/litecoind:latest     "ltc_oneshot"       2 seconds ago       Up 1 seconds        127.0.0.1:8332->8332/tcp, 0.0.0.0:8333->8333/tcp   litecoind-node
    
  3. You can then access the daemon's output thanks to the docker logs command

     docker logs -f litecoind-node
    
  4. Install optional init scripts for upstart and systemd are in the init directory.
