Short Description
Docker in docker, in the background of a container.
Full Description


Use this to run a docker daemon (in docker) in the background of a container
while you access it in the foreground.

It is based on docker:dind.

I am using it for Gitlab CI builds.

$ docker run --rm --privileged saulshanabrook/dind-isolated docker run hello-world
waiting for docker daemon...

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

Share images, automate workflows, and more with a free Docker Hub account:

The flags set in DOCKER_DAEMON_FLAGS will be passed to the daemon.
