Short Description
Headless ORC image, built automatically for every tagged release.
Full Description

The Onion Routed Cloud. ORC is a distributed
anonymous cloud storage network owned and operated by all of us. Join
the discussion in #orc on our community chat!


Warning! ORC is alpha software and is still a highly experimental
test network! Be smart, keep backups, and stay safe out there!


Pull the image from Docker Hub.

docker pull orcproject/orc

Create a data directory on the host.

mkdir ~/.config/orcd

Run the ORC container, publish API port, and mount directory for persistence.

docker run \
  --publish \
  --volume ~/.config/orcd:/root/.config/orcd \
  --tty orcproject/orc

Modify the created configuration at ~/.config/orcd/config as desired (see
the {@tutorial config}) and restart the container for the changes to take
effect. If you want to provide storage capacity to the network, be sure to
set your desired allocation for ShardStorageMaxAllocation.

Once the container has started, you can use use the guide for {@tutorial api}
to interact with it!

See the docker run documentation
for more information. If you prefer to install ORC manually, see the guide for
{@tutorial install}. Once installed, simply run orcd with an optional
configuration file using the --config <path/to/config> option.

Automatic Security Updates

When running the ORC server installation with Docker, you can configure your
node to periodically check for updates and automatically download the latest
image and restart your node to make sure you are always running the latest
stable release. Since you already have Docker installed, pull the
image for Watchtower and run it.

docker pull v2tec/watchtower
docker run -d --name watchtower -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock v2tec/watchtower

Now, Watchtower will check for the latest stable images for running containers
and automatically update them.


To hack on the ORC project, clone this repository and use
Docker Compose:

git clone
cd orc
docker-compose up --force-recreate --build

This will volume mount the the appropriate directories for development, and
then boots up a complete sandboxed ORC network, including a complete sandboxed
Tor network and once bootstrapped, binds port 9089 to the host for full
end-to-end testing. The development container does not persist state between
runs. Note that stable releases are tagged and the master branch may contain
unstable or bleeding-edge code.

Happy hacking!
