Full Description


Perform actions based on a webhook from the Docker Hub.

Idea: Make a simple Docker container that accepts a webhook from the Docker hub and triggers an action (like pulling a fresh copy of a Docker image and restarting services).

Quick run

docker run \
  --publish 8080:8080 \
  -e 'AUTODOCK_WEBAPP=training/webapp:echo yay' \

Replace training/webapp with the name of the container from the Docker hub you want to trigger on and the command you want to run. You're probably in the mood to make it docker pull that image for you automatically and restart some services.

You'll also need to set up the webhook on your Docker repo page (located at https://registry.hub.docker/com/u/{username}/{repo}/settings/webhooks):

Once it's set up, you can use a test webhook

core@nbviewer ~ $ docker run --publish 8080:8080 -e 'AUTODOCK_NBCACHE=rgbkrk/nbcache:echo IM IN YOUR LOGS' rgbkrk/autodock
2014/07/28 23:26:56 Docker repository actions:
2014/07/28 23:26:56     rgbkrk/nbcache: [echo IM IN YOUR LOGS]
2014/07/28 23:32:55 Processing rgbkrk/nbcache
2014/07/28 23:32:55 Running [echo IM IN YOUR LOGS]
2014/07/28 23:32:55 IM IN YOUR LOGS


  • Make configuration suck less
  • Create default pull option
  • Actually figure out how to link it up with the host to do docker actions


Simply clone this repo, start hacking then run:

docker build -t autodock .

Make sure you run with some set of AUTODOCKs set up:

docker run -e 'AUTODOCK_YAY=example/app:echo hi' -p 8080:8080 autodock

You can then verify this with your favorite way to hit up a URL:

Python, with Requests

>>> import json
...               data=json.dumps({"repository":{"repo_name":"example/app"}}),
...               headers={'Content-type': 'application/json'})
<Response [200]>


curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -d '{"repository":{"repo_name":"something/else"}}' \

Example Run

$ docker build -t autodock .
