Full Description



Hornet-docker offers a dockerization of Hornet, a realtime engine originally built for Fresc.

You can find all informations about Hornet on its Github repository.

This docker image is based on the official Redis Docker repository, and is powered by Supervisor to control both processes of Redis and Hornet.

Build it

Build this dockerfile by :

$ docker build -t hornet .

Run the built hornet image by :

$ docker run --name some-hornet -p 8187:8187 -d hornet

You can also get the image from the Nectify DockerHub :

Link it

Connect the Hornet container from your application :

$ docker run --name some-app --link some-hornet:hornet -d application-that-uses-hornet

Docker will provide to your some-app container some useful environment variables with informations about Hornet address :

  • HORNET_PORT_8187_TCP_ADDR : IP address of the container
  • HORNET_PORT_8187_TCP_PORT : port number for Hornet

Exposed ports

Supervisor provides logs for Hornet and Redis.

These logs are in the directory /var/log/supervisor.

$ docker run --name some-hornet -p 8187:8187 -v /path/from/host:/var/log/supervisor -d hornet
