Full Description

CLI Toolbox with DinD (Docker in Docker)

From maven which includes Java, Maven, Git & SVN utilities. Ant, and Vim are added here. Based on toolbox with DinD added.

Bash Example (without DinD running)

Simple example which opens a bash shell inside the toolbox container-

$ docker run --rm -it --name toolbox psharkey/toolbox-dind bash

Then, exit will stop the container and return to the host shell -

root@1b8f4106bcb8:/# exit

Bash with DinD

        docker run --rm -it \
                --privileged \
                --name toolbox \
                psharkey/toolbox-dind "$@"

With bash or other command specified DinD is not started.

$ toolbox bash

With no command specified the supervisord.conf takes over:

$ toolbox
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/supervisor/ UserWarning: Supervisord is running as root and it is searching for its configuration file in default locations (including its current working directory); you probably want to specify a "-c" argument specifying an absolute path to a configuration file for improved security.

Then docker exec can be used to execute other utilities:

$ docker exec -it toolbox git --version
git version 2.1.4

Which include docker...

$ docker exec -it toolbox docker run hello-world

Hello from Docker.
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
 1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
 2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
 3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
 4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
 $ docker run -it ubuntu bash
