Short Description
Image for quickly dumping a mongo database to a tar file.
Full Description



Quick wrapper script for mongodump in the dockerfile/mongodb image that will
dump the mongo databases you mount.


Assuming you have a mongodb container running.

CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                       COMMAND                CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                  NAMES

You can then run this image as a temporary container to dump the database.

$ docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/dump --link mongodb:dump

This will drop the backup in your current directory. From there you can do what you need with it.
